Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Speaking of Groundhog Day, I am thrilled to note that Punxsutawney Phill didn't see his terrifying shadow, and spring should be just around the corner. Can you guess why? The weather here has been interesting at the least. Either we are socked in with an inversion one could choke on, or snow and sleet line the roads. Of course the past couple of days have been clear and bright. Notice I didn't say warm? This morning I woke to the temperature being a balmy -1 degrees outside. Now, this I would expect in North Dakota, Alaska, and parts of the frozen tundra, but in a desert such as Utah? Yep, and we were warmer than a lot of other places.
This is not weather I'd like to repeat for the next while. I can't imagine living this day over and over again, especially due to the frozen extremities (toes) I seem to be sporting. Terrifying.
Spring is just around the corner. I am looking forward to those days when birds will nest in my back yard, and the grass perks up from it's wintery slumber. I can't wait for the daffodils. Nothing says spring to me than bunches of daffodils trumpeting in the season.
Stay warm! I plan to snuggle in my bed and hope today doesn't repeat itself tomorrow!
