Sitting here kicked back in my recliner, listening to some endless drivel from the television, and reading blogs. It’s the fifth of March, which means we should have spent the last few days preparing our small garden. Yesterday was a real tease. The high was 82 degrees, and the fruit trees were beginning to put on a show. Today, however, the temperature has hovered near freezing all day. Icicles are hanging from the eaves.
I’m envious of those that are still in Arizona or Florida. Hiking, biking, atv’ing, soaking in hot springs; etc. Why did we come home so soon?
It’s on days like today that I catch up my Google Earth map. Since we started traveling in the Casita, I’ve pinned our camping locations. The map is getting crowded. I can no longer see all of the pins in one photo. As I zoom out to get a larger picture, many of the locations blend into one.
Whenever I open Google Earth, and see all those pins, I realize how lucky we are. To have been able to visit so many different parts of our Country is a true blessing. Each of those pins represent a learning experience. Whether it was someone we met, or something we experienced such as a meal, museum, or landscape; it created a memory. And, all it takes is to zoom in on one of those pins to rekindle that memory. I find that priceless.
On another note, thanks for the comments on the new header picture. One problem is that I don’t recognize my own blog, and as some said, the original was iconic. I will be changing it back. That picture just says “Eggrollings”….jc
