Chapter 2, Page 6, Chapter 11

The north wind doth blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what will the robin do then?
Poor thing.
He'll sit in a barn,
To keep himself warm,
And hide his head under his wing,
Poor thing.

R and R Sunday / Spring is on it's way!

It's true the robins are back. We're not sure if they migrate south in the winter or have been hiding out but yesterday I did see my first Robin of the year.

Little things like a robin sure can brighten my day. It's always a sure sign of Spring they say.

Looking at all this snow makes it very hard to believe. I am rather like the robin in the poem above I'll be staying in and keeping warm. As always you all are in prayers and thoughts!

Enjoy some Sunday R & R today everyone!

We have bright sunshine today, so I can begin to believe that spring will be here shortly. I'm going out for a walk -- sidewalks are clear! - and a trip to Michael's to explore Valentines fixings. Have a great Sunday.

Yay!! My yard was full on robins the other day getting worms. I am not sure but I think the robins are here year round. I sure hope it will be an early spring. Have a good day MA

It's a beautiful sunny day here today. I just had to get out and clean out the bird baths and put feed in the feeders. They say it is suppose to rain tomorrow and turn cold again later this week. Take care and stay warm.

Robins are always a sure sign of spring. Unfortunately we won't see them for at least another month or longer. Hugs

I am glad you posted tht little ditty. Sherry's mama used to use that while talking to the boys when they were small. They just loved to hear it, or maybe it was me!!!

Sherry and I have taken to saying it.
Hope you have a great week coming up.
