Everything is so Green. It looks so good after a Spring, Summer and Fall of brown due to the extreme drought. We have had lots of rain in January and February and now it feels like Spring in Winter. We have had very little winter weather, two or three freezes is all. I don't like cold weather so it suits me fine. I have not been painting, but sewing a lot. We have family almost every other weekend and its great. I have been working on Ancestry.com lots and have discovered relatives I didn't know. Its great and I love discovering my family roots.
