Springtime Surprise

I took DollFace to the park after school to feed the ducks. I have been carrying a fossilized loaf of bread around in the car for just such an occasion. There were no ducks at the park today, only a few geese and these geese were the most satisfied, overfed geese I’ve ever seen. As if saying, “Lady I’m not swimming over there for anything less than a fresh, hot French fry, please take away your stale loaf.”
I have stayed within my calorie range, but I need to do something about my afternoon snack. It’s not substantial enough and I’m starving when I get home so it’s too easy to dig right in to cooking supper and afterwards it’s too late to walk. I did get in a brief after supper walk though and these spring beauties greeted me on the way back.

My grandmother’s springtime surprise to me every year. I sure didn’t plant them and I forget about them until they spring up every year.

Here is my diva, Zoe, wondering why I don’t grow grass for her inside the house.

  1. Our daffodils bloomed last week too – such a lovely surprise!!! Good job staying within the calorie range! Good idea on a bigger snack, it really helps to have one a couple hours before dinner, makes a big difference. Good on you for getting your walk in. I adore Zoe, she is a cutie!

  2. the daffodils are gorgeous! Such a great springtime surprise :)Good luck with the diet and exercise plan and of course with the donor egg cycle in May!ICLW #134

  3. oops! meant to say that Zoe is so cute.. (in my defence will say that Michelle [one of my cats..] was sitting by the keyboard and making it hard to type)

  4. What a nice surprise with flowers. I have to admit that I left a surprise like that when I moved out of my ex's house. He still (8 years later) has flowers come back up that I planted.

  5. You're daffodils are gorgeous. I'm still waiting on mine to bud and bloom. Although since it snowed again last night, I'm glad they haven't already. TFS!ICLW #33
