Another spring snow is on its way, so the buckets and pots are in place over my daffodils. The low gray clouds edged over the first line of hills this morning so I couldn't see the hilltops. Now the gray is everywhere, a steady drizzle hinting at the amount of snow we may get later this afternoon.
The next two days will be great days to stay home and watch the weather through the window.
I'm working my shift at the Northern Colorado Writers studio today. Just glanced up and found the rain has turned to snow. Big fat flakes. Sigh. Good thing I covered those spindly daffodils.
Since I had an eye appointment this morning and came away with dilated pupils, I'm finding the computer screen a bit of a strain. As a result, I'm going to offer up the links to three entertaining blog posts and then give up the computer for a couple of hours.
I enjoyed "You Might Just Be a Writer if ..." at Elspeth Antonelli's It's a Mystery.
"The (Monkey) Business of Publishing" by Barbara Poelle at Hey, There's a Dead Guy in the Living Room. (via Janet Reid's blog).
And Cricket McRae is guest blogging today at Meritorious Mysteries. Cricket writes the excellent Sophie Mae Reynolds home crafting mystery series (Lye in Wait, Heaven Preserve Us, Spin a Wicked Web). The latest book in the series, Something Borrowed, Something Bleu, is scheduled for release in July.
Okay, time to rest my eyes and watch the snow fall. It's beginning to stick on the cars so it looks like I'll have some brushing to do before I drive home. Springtime in Colorado. Another sigh.
