If April Showers Bring May Flowers.....

.....what does April snow bring? Slippery, icy roads, that's what! Last night, it started snowing like crazy & I wasn't sure what we would wake up to this morning, but luckily, it was only about an inch or two. On my way to take Cassie to school this morning, I almost got rear-ended by a kid that couldn't get stopped because the roads were icy as they didn't salt them yet.

I just wish someone would tell Mother Nature that this is supposed to be Spring! This is the 3rd April in a row that we've had winter weather like this. 2 years ago, we had a really bad ice storm, then last April, we got hammered with a snow storm on the 23rd & 24th. Here's a layout I did about that storm: Spring Snow Storm. I guess I should be used to it with living in Michigan. But when April gets here, I am just SO ready for Spring & want to get out & plant some flowers. Ah well....maybe by the time May gets here, the weather will cooperate :)

I just saw this challenge on 2 Peas this morning, so I thought I'd go ahead & do it: You find/win/are given/inherit $100,000. Make a list and itemize exactly what you would do with the money.

First, I would get my Mom out of the nursing home & hire a nurse to be able to come in & take care of her. Then I would pay off all my credit card bills. And if there was anything left after that, I would take my daughter to Germany since she really wants to go there.

Speaking of 2 Peas, yesterday I hit what some people consider a 'milestone'.....my 5,000th post. Now I get to make my own title, but still can't decide on one. Would love to hear any & all ideas. Someone recommended "SPeady B" which I do like since I like Nascar......another person said "Rockin' Grandma" since I'm a grandma & like to go to Linkin Park concerts :) Then there was another suggestion to use my blog name, On Eagle's Wings, which I also like since my blog is named after my belated sister & brother-in-law. I was thinking about "UnPUBlished PEA" since I still haven't been published yet :( Anyway, if you have some ideas, I'd love to hear them.....just post them in the comments section of my blog.

On a side note, Jim & I both bowled really good last night......I shot a 612 series with games of 217, 200 & 195 (my 2nd 600 series this year) & Jim bowled a 715 series (can't remember his games right off hand, though). We ended up taking all 7 points & we're still in first place.....yay, team :) 3 weeks to go of this league & then shortly after it's over, I start up my 9-Pin No Tap League......I can't wait!

That's all for now.....have a wonderful Wednesday!

This weather reminds me of a line in the song from "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers."

"April showers will come so they say, but they don't and it's May"
