We interrupt this regularly scheduled blog break for a springtime announcement.
My long-awaited first sign of Spring finally arrived early this week. Spring peepers and western chorus frogs began their spring songs on our ponds. Ohhhh, how I love this sound.
I made a little audio clip to share. Nothing to look at here – just the audio for you to enjoy the spring sounds. I wanted to give you a snippet of what we are hearing now in case you’ve never heard them before, or are in a location where the froggies haven’t awakened quite yet. I crave this sound all winter long. It's even my ringtone. Crazy... yes I know :) The sound is nearly deafening at times here, but I still love it! **Update: I had to insert a link here because after 10 hours my video still wouldn't upload to Blogger. Hope this works!

If you listen closely to the clip, the sounds which resemble a thumbnail on a comb are the Western Chorus Frogs (my favorites).
I’m still on a blog break. Really I am. Soon I hope to catch up on my chore list, as well as my ever-important blog list. I’ve been sick this week with cold/flu. And no, I do not have our taxes complete. And no, I haven’t accomplished any of the other unpleasant tasks as of yet. I did manage to purge my closet of two very large bags of clothes (so far). Goodwill and Uncle Sam (IRS), look out 'cause here I come just as soon as I’m back among the living.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Happy Spring… see you soon!
