Bore da!

I think that is Welsh for Good Day and since this is March 1st, St David's Day, it seems appropriate. I was really impressed with the Google Doodle for today, and it is nice to think that they can have a bit of fun too. Here it is.

I don't have a lot of time today as I am off for drinks at the Vicarage soon. Our new Vicar, James, wishes to meet with the members of the PCC. So we are going up to his house for a meeting. We were asked to prepare the answers to two questions, "What are the Mountaintops?" and "What are the Valleys?" which seem like quite reasonable questions, and I have pondered them. I'm not sure that my views on what is good and what is bad in our Parish will be shared by my colleagues, but I don't think that I was put on earth to be anyone's rubber stamp. By the way, yes, I do believe in a God who made me but I'm not too bothered if you don't agree with me. It is your life and we must all live our lives by our own beliefs.

Jasper the Spaniel went to have a hair cut this morning. I was quite intrigued the first time that I discovered that there is a "Spaniel Cut" known to all dog groomers. Splendid. So Jasper has come home with a little punk hairstyle and he look beautiful. But then he always looks beautiful, even when he is coated with a one inch thick layer of mud, which he often is.

It has been a gorgeous day. with a bright blue springtime sky and it has been warm. I sat in the Conservatory for a while this afternoon, with the window open for some fresh spring air. Patricia actually sat outside in the sunshine, reading her newspaper. It was really good. I remember the other year it was much later in March before it really became spring like, so I hope that this is a good sign and it is going to be a good year. I'll finish with this little picture. I got the big camera out today when I took Jasper for his walk, because I thought that there might have been something nice to photograph, but there was not. However, back at home, in the garden, I found this little beauty, and it seemed very appropriate, on St David's Day, to include a little picture that pretty much sums up today.

Da Spring is sprung!
