Simple Saturday Prep: A Springtime Celebration of Kindness

In Texas? Nah...This picture amazes me. Behold those bold and beautiful crocus blossoms fighting their way through that chilly snow. Ye-gads! Now that's what I call tenacity! Those flowers ain't April Fooling around, I tell you.

I found this photo on one of my most favorite blogs, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. You should check it out. It's really good! I read it when I need a good poetic shot in the arm.

So, this morning I'm walking Tripod, admiring the neighborhood's newly planted flowers, and this week's Simple Saturday activity popped into my head! Ready for some super-sneaky fun?

 Tomorrow we're going to reenact one of my most favorite childhood memories - one that celebrates the onset of springtime, friendship, and your marvelous sense of adventure. All we need is a small paper cup, a piece of ribbon, and some tiny flowers.

 All for now. Now go out and enjoy this lovely spring in Texas, anyway!
