Finally, A Look of Spring in Central Wisconsin


It has been a long grueling winter season for us here in Northcentral Wisconsin but it can’t be like that forever so this time, my shout will be one of a very relieved soul! Hooray!!! Dandelions are now around us and it is finally Spring!!!

Dandelions, Spring 2014

We haven’t seen a whole lot of Tulips and Daffodils blooming just as yet but we are seeing the trees budding and most of all, the birds singing their morning chirps loudly and positively!

We have taken a mile-hike this past weekend just around the Green Circle Trail near our complex and it was such a joyful moment to enjoy the Spring breeze. The woods are still uncovered with leaves but pretty soon, they all will look green as if winter never passed us at all.

Me and Eds, a very dear friend who visited us this past weekend from IL

Our weekend getaway on one of our last 4 weekends here in Central Wisconsin was in Marshfield, at the Wildwood Park and Zoo, and we had a wonderful time there with our family friends from Illinois. The Spring breeze was a simple reminder that Wisconsin has the coolest wind and that we will be missing this atmosphere when we finally make this place a memory.

Well, we are spending the last days of Wisconsin lifestyle bitter-sweetly! It is not so fun thinking that we are leaving so many great people behind, but it is definitely a beautiful memory that we will bring on our relocation to Texas. Like the life cycle of my favorite Dandelion, it blooms unstoppably during the warm season but it doesn’t bloom forever. It has to wither and come back anew via the power of Our Maker.

Finally, winter 2013-2014 is now a history, including the polar vortex and all the sub-zero temperatures. Finally, it is Springtime and it makes my heart so in tune with the plan I have laid out which is but relied on to My God’s amazing leading.

There are a whole lot of Spring looks around here– it is only a matter of pausing from our daily cares to notice the beauty of even the tiniest wild bloom around you. Do it and be grateful. It will make a difference in your heart.


Scary Stormy Clouds in the Northeastern Sky


Yay! It’s the last day of June! I can’t believe half of the year is now over! That was a quickie!

Yesterday, it was supposed to be our church day but stayed home we did because the little girls and I weren’t feeling well. The husband’s line for this past week has been, “Poor me. My girls are all sick!”. Such a pity, I know! It made him rush his daily Algebra class every day as he needed to come home as soon as he can because I wasn’t in the best health condition to tend everything that I should. Asthma episodes were competing with my strength that it limit my ability to become a ‘pro’ multi-tasker.


And since we were just home, inventing some indoor fun stuff was always the main thing. The husband and Ate Triz were the experts on those so the day passed by unnoticed. In the afternoon, we went outside to breathe some fresh air. Fresh air it really was since our temperature yesterday was only in the low 60′s and the wind was blowing strongly. We first spent some minutes in the front yard as we enjoyed the greenery that our eyes can see. We looked up in the sky and it was blue and sunny all over.


When we headed to the backyard to check on our potted plants, we were surprised with the dark stormy clouds in the northeastern part of the sky. It was a unique scene up there because right where we were was so sunny and bright but far from us in the northern part, the clouds darkened as if a tornado is forming and a heavy rain is about to fall. You can tell by this photo below how the scenery looked like actually!


See these three housemates of mine? They could barely bear the bright glaring sun but the sky far behind them was dark and stormy! It was pretty amazing!


I actually was able to capture a few snaps of the ‘cool’ clouds formation. It was Triz’s perfect chance to explain evaporation and condensation as if she was a Science teacher! Lol. I thought this snap below is a perfect picture of my scary stormy clouds in the northeastern sky description. Let me know what you think!

We only stayed outside for around 20 minutes. We had to rush to get inside quickly when the first drop of rain (a big drop it was!) fell on us. The clouds looked so fascinating but absolutely scary, too. When you hear of tornado and stuff like that, there is no way you will find a scene like this up in the sky to be a delight. No way!


Living here in Central Wisconsin gave us the chance to experience the severity of weather and temperature. We live close to the Fire Department and during weather warnings, we are always the first ones to hear the sirens blazing. In most cases though, warnings only remained to be warnings. And I am thankful for that!
