Crazy spring weather!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have had a good beginning to our spring weather. For 4 days now we have had rain off and on and the night before last we got a tornado. I have included a picture. I was off work but it was about 4 miles from my job. I don't think it had touched down it was just skimming across the field but it looks pretty wicked.

One of the things I hate the most about living in the Texas Panhandle are the high winds that sometimes produce these tornados. We are educated at work and by the TV stations but sometimes when one is actually near I forget all about what I am supposed to do and give in to the fear that springs up in me.

I have been busy with my sewing, I am in a bag swap with my Snickerdoodle dreams buddies and my partner is in England. I am making a tote bag that is turning out to be much bigger than anticipated but hopefully she will be able to use it in some function. I have made a baby quilt and a lap quilt that I will post on here as soon as I can get some pics finished.

I took the kids to the park and came across some interesting sights I thought some of you might enjoy. First up is this sweet little bird. If you click on the picture you can see how he has puffed out his furry tummy. He was busy singing in one of the trees.

There is a lake at the park and the kids never miss a chance to feed the ducks and the swans. We also went by the Discovery Center which is a hands on museum for Kiddos and lots of the big people like it too.

When we started the walk it was clear than we were surprised by a big rain shower which is what drove us into the Discovery Center and when we came out there was this beautiful rain bow. Oh how I love rainbows.

I will finish up with the pretty budding trees. They are so many different colors right now, pinks and blues and white and lavendar and yellow. Oh yes Spring has surely sprung in the Texas Panhandle.
Thanks for taking this walk with us, I hope the sights and sounds are as pretty in your neck of the country.
