Webster's says a blog is…
a Web site containing the writer's or group of writers' own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other Web sites.
That being stated…since I’ve been AWOL from my blog, does that mean that I’ve not had any experiences, observations or opinions? Quite the contrary! I have but having the time or motivation to put them down as ink on paper has been few and far between. How does a person start blogging again after only posting 3 times in the last two months?!? Holy Smokes Batman! I’m going to do my best to catch you up on the goings on around here in the next few days.
Let me start with the recent weather we’ve had. The last few days have been near 80 degrees and it’s mid-March? So what does a self-respecting mid-westerner do when we have this kind of weather so early in the Spring? Go for a motorcycle ride of course!
Everything is bare yet which makes it pretty in it’s own right. You can see so much without the foliage blocking views.
We had a few curious onlookers. These kind are ok. The dog that chased us twice, not so much!
We packed sandwiches and were able to sit by the river (Mississippi) for lunch. Again, folks this is March in Northern Illinois. Incredible!
The sky was the most beautiful blur Spring sky.
See the windmill? I’ll bet it was spinning like crazy later this afternoon. By the time we got home, the winds were blowin’ like crazy but it’s still warm.
Forecast calls for 70’s yet this week. I know better than to think it’s going to stay like this. It’s too early but it’s sure nice while it lasts.
