I saw more clouds and more blue holes recently!

Happy Easter, my friends!  Today, I’d like to talk about the clouds that I saw in the skies above both Cuddy and National Hill earlier this month … and I would like to talk about the “blue holes” that were in some of those clouds.

First, I’m going to show you photos that I took of some clouds and “blue holes” back on April 6th.  The clouds are white, dark and grey … and you may see a “blue hole” or two in some of these clouds.  I also zoomed in on some neat-looking clouds as well.  There may be a little cloud inside of the big clouds also.

On April 9th, I snapped more photos of the clouds that were in the skies above Cuddy and National Hill.  The clouds that I saw on that day were also white, grey and dark … and there were “blue holes” in these clouds as well.

I hope you guys liked looking at the clouds and the “blue holes” as much as I liked showing them to you.  Enjoy your Easter!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on our around April 21st in previous years …

Old Man Winter Keeps Returning To National Hill!

It may be the middle of April, but, today, it didn’t feel like it at all.  It also didn’t look like the middle of April outdoors.  Just a few days ago, we had a little taste of summer here on National Hill … and, sadly, today, we had another taste of Winter here on National Hill.  Old Man Winter gave us a break over the weekend, but, sadly, he came back here yesterday … and he’s still on National Hill today.  Hopefully, Old Man Winter will be able to leave National Hill tomorrow … and, hopefully, he can stay away from National Hill for a few months or so.  My fingers are crossed.  Enjoy your day, even though it’s cold outside!

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For April 2018

Can you believe it?  The month of April is here … and, in just a few short weeks, I will turn 32.  Well, today, I’m gonna tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 30th Birthday, Sarah!”  On April 26th, my cousin, Sarah Smith, will turn 30 years old … and I will talk about the event in a blog post then.

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ Goes To Pittsburgh” … and, in it, I talked about Mr. Classy’s first trip to Pittsburgh.  Well, on April 4th, he will take another trip to Pittsburgh … and, at some point in April, I will write a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ Goes To Pittsburgh Again!”  It will be about Mr. Classy’s second trip to the Steel City.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “An ‘ode’ to a classy person named Jay.”  It’s about a friend of mine, whose first name is Jay.  I won’t tell you who it is yet, but I will do it in a blog post at some point this month.

I will also write my 850th blog post in April … and, in it, I will make an announcement about the future of my blog.

I will also use my features in four of my blog posts this month.  Let me tell you how I will be using them this time around.

Joseph’s Flashback-We were the only ones in the movie theater?!
Joseph Has A Question For You-Should Joseph wash “My Pillow” this month?
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace-Joseph’s blog itself
Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post-I’m no longer in the “Lyme” light

I hope you guys will be able to check out at least one of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April.  They may catch your eye.  Enjoy your Easter!

Joseph’s Classy Pullover

For several years now, I have owned a black pullover top from The North Face.  I don’t wear it very often, but I really like it a lot.  I could wear this top all day long, if I wanted to … and I have done it a few times over the years.

This top is very classy … and it’s also perfect for a classy person like myself.  You can wear it with either slacks, jeans or shorts.

The snow is slowly melting away!

Now, last week, as we were starting the 2018 Spring season, we actually got several inches of snow!  Over the past few days or so, the snow has been melting slowly, but surely here on National Hill.

I was actually walking outdoors this afternoon … and I noticed that the people who live on Cuddy Hill don’t have any snow on the ground while we still have a lot of snow at our house.  In fact, a few houses on National Hill still have snow on their properties as well.

Today, I’d like to show you the snow that is still at our house, just days after we got a snow storm.

There is still some snow in our backyard. I’m pointing to it in this photo.
There is a lot of snow near our house! There’s also snow on the chairs that are in our backyard.

As you can see here, while many other people in our little town have almost no snow on our properties, we have a lot of snow on our property, but, of course, it will all be gone soon.  Hopefully, the snow won’t return to National Hill for a while.

The seasons got mixed up this week!

Yesterday afternoon, at 12:15, Spring started for real.  So far, it hasn’t felt like Spring, but, of course, it will eventually feel like it again.  On Monday, while it was still Winter, it sort of felt like Spring.  I was able to walk outdoors a few times on that day.  Since Spring started yesterday afternoon, it has felt like Winter.  In fact, just before I went to bed last night, it started to snow outside … and, whenever I woke up early this morning, I saw a lot of snow near our house.

Let me put it this way, just in case I may have confused you guys.  On Monday, we were saying good-bye to Winter … and it felt like Spring outside.  Then, yesterday, we said hello to Spring … and it actually felt like Winter outside.  Of course, as you know, anything can happen while we go outdoors.  You never know which season it will be.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts About Spring

In just two weeks, Spring will officially arrive.  Recently, it has felt like it on a few occasions, but this week, it won’t feel like it too much.  In fact, it still feels a little bit like Winter today.

Today, the sun is out … and there’s a big chill in the air.  We all want to get ready for Spring, of course, so, today, I’d like to tell you about some of my top blog posts, which are about Spring.  The top blog posts are about trees, plants and, of course, Spring, in general.

One of my top blog posts here is about Spring in general.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who waters our flowers and plants every Spring! (April 9, 2015)

Another one of my top blog posts here is about plants.
Watering flowers and plants (April 8, 2015)

Another one of my top blog posts here is about flowers.
I’d like to show you my flowers today! (May 14, 2015)

These top three blog posts here are about plants, flowers and Spring, in general.  Spring will start in just 15 days.  Recently, we had a little taste of Spring on certain days.  It won’t feel like Spring too much this week.

The leaves are back on the trees again!

Spring is pretty much in full swing here on National Hill.  The leaves are slowly growing on our trees again … and hopefully we’ll be able to see a lot more leaves popping up on our trees again sometime in the near future.

Today, I wanted to show you the trees that already have some leaves on them.

First, I saw some yellow leaves on the trees which are located on our little hillside.  This little hillside is located near the highway fence.

This little hillside is located near the highway fence. On it, these trees have some yellow leaves on them. These trees look fantastic and bright!

Also, some trees, which are located near our backyard, have some leaves on them again.

These trees have some leaves on them already. I’m pointing to them in this picture. You probably won’t be able to see them too clearly in this picture, though.

As I said before, hopefully, more leaves will pop up on the trees again sometime in the not-too-distant future.

Now, tomorrow, I’m going to talk about the things that will be happening to me during the month of April.  It will actually be a two-part blog post … and in it, I’m gonna talk about the things that I will be doing during the month of April.  I will also talk about some of the blog posts that I will be writing for you guys during that month.

What season is this again?

In a previous blog post, I said that the 2016 Winter season didn’t feel like it too much.  We did see cold temperatures and we did see some snow on the ground this Winter, but we wouldn’t actually see both of those things for long periods of time during this past Winter.  Sometimes, it was warm outside and it actually felt like Spring.

Well, when Spring began for real on Sunday, it didn’t feel like it at all!  The temperatures were somewhat cold … and we did see a little bit of snow on the ground.  Obviously, Old Man Winter just had to ruin our fun on the First Day of Spring.  Other than that, it was still a fantastic day, in my opinion.

So, now that Spring is here, hopefully it will feel like Spring for real this time!
