Has Spring

When I was growing up, my mom would sing a LOT of silly songs.  Which I have tortured the Stooges with since their birth.  Here is one little charmer, appropriate to the season.
Spring is sprung
Grass is riz
Wonder whur them flowers iz.
I'm a little nut
Sittin' on a tree
Sum-one comed and stepped on me
I'm cracked.
(And yes it's spelled that way on purpose.)

I've been singin' this.  'Cause ya'll, it's looking like SPRING has SPRUNG!

Eight days ago we had 3 inches of snow.  Today, we have trees budding out.

And this is in front of my office.  If you look carefully, you'll see that the daffodils are trying to bloom.  Trying, I tell you.  Of course some people have more spring stuff, not to mention garden porn.

This time next week there will be tons of stuff blooming.  Hotlanta is simply stunning in the spring.

Speaking of stunning...

Want.  Must have.  AMC has Mad Men Barbies.  I miss Mad Men.  Can Don Draper ravish me?  Or I could be Joan - I once had natural auburn hair.

On the home front, we are trying to get Curly enrolled in an alternative high school so we can get him to graduate this spring.  He's going to have to go to an evening class - it's the only way.  Curly is getting over a sinus infection and has been pretty miserable while suspended.  But we are still working on school arrangements and he can't afford to be out any more, so it's back to school tomorrow for Curly.  And now Moe is feeling pretty bad.  Moe is seldom sick, so for him to gripe about his head and throat and overall malaise isn't good.  I think he will be home tomorrow.

DH and I did get something good done this week.  Yesterday we refinanced our house.  Shorter term, and dropped the rate down to 4.75% fixed.  We'll never see that low a rate again. so we had to get it while the getting was good.  But this gives us a tiny touch of breathing room on the bills.

I'm working on some minor tatting - a thought I had about some split rings.  I'm going to see if I can work it out and show you soon.
