signs of Spring! My crocuses are blooming!
And the daffodil bulbs I planted last fall are sending up their sprouts!
We have to wait a little longer in Colorado for things to come up and start blooming, but I am excited just to see the hints of Spring on its way!

new gadgets! This is a weather station that my hubby bought about a week ago. It tells us all kinds of info, and of course we spend lots of time looking at it and checking what it says. The thing that fascinates us the most is the wind speed. Out in our yard, there is now a little device that gathers all the measurements and sends them to our display here. An anemometer attached to it measures the wind speed. We have fun looking out at the anemometer to see if it's spinning, and then checking the display to see what the wind speed is. So far, the highest has been 16 mph. I'm sure it will go higher, especially now that it's March!
Another gadget I like is my Fitbit Zip. I wear it every day on my waistband, and it counts my steps. It's like a personal challenge to myself to make sure I keep moving!
About once a week, I sync it up to my Nook tablet, and it records all of my steps so I can see how I've been doing. The goal is at least 10,000 steps, which I make many days, but not always. And now and then, I go way above 10,000, so that's a good feeling!
Here was Monday's total!

the community of readers that I experience in so many forms. Friends here in town and friends online who recommend books. Thanks to this community, I never run out of books to read! Look what I just picked up from the Reserved shelf at my local library this afternoon!
I'm going to brew myself a cup of tea, and go get started reading!
Happy Thursday, everyone! Don't forget to check out LeeAnna's I like Thursday post (see the link above) for more fun and interesting likes!
