Yesterday we had spring here in Chicagoland. The sun was shining, the birds chirped, the temps almost reached 70 degrees. It was glorious. I grabbed my camera just to see if I could capture little signs that once again Spring has returned, but as you can see, it is slow, really really slow in arriving.
And with Spring the critters arrive....well, not really this particular bunny (took this in Arizona) but definitely cousins of his. Love this one's big ears and the chunk missing on the right ear.
Since my lovely vacation to Arizona I have been neglect in educating us with our "words to sound smart"....I have chosen the word diaspora as this week's word. It originally was used to described Jews living outside Israel and later expanded its meaning to describe any body of people scattered outside of their homeland. I do believe that all the residents that live in the Sun Lakes, AZ community are definitely diaspora....not a single one is a native of Arizona....they all came from different places, usually from colder climates searching for the warmth of the sun. How about you, are you a diaspora? living outside or beyond your original home? I guess I could classify myself as such since my roots are in Texas but now I have lived so long in the Midwest (30+ years) that if I moved from here I would be another diaspora.
Linking to Macro Monday....
Well, gotta go finish those taxes...yeah I dragged my feet (you know procrastinated) until now I am down to literally the last minute. Have a great week everyone.
