The Perfect Spring Day

In case you live in an area of the country that had more snow than we did, I'm sorry. We still have snow, but it's going away fast and not a single soul is mourning it's loss. Hand up the one who spots the patch of snow in the first picture.

Football is truly a seasonless sport. Football with a trampoline involved really makes the game that much more fun. Have you ever did a bounce-tuck-body slam when you caught a ball?



There are birds! Singing in the trees! And blue skies!


Spring is officially here when the grill is used more frequently than the stove.


The husband tilled the garden today without me even asking him to do it. That tiller there is The Awesome. I sifted dirt through my hands for quite a while after it was finished. Oh, it felt good. It sure beats snow.


And look-it! I was so sure that the flowers died under the 4' of snow on the garden. Of all places for the drift to gather, it had to be over the spring bulbs. But the snow is officially melted and the flowers are alive. THEY'RE ALIVE. And I've got some serious raking to do.


Spring is here. The sunshine and warmth have made me happier than I have been in a long, long time. It's like a tranquilizing drug. Is it possible to bottle sunshine?

Tiller!! My grandfather had that same tiller for as long as I can remember. It still runs great and has been passed to my dad. I hope it's mine someday when we have a tillable yard (we have a swamp that grows NOTHING) and I bet it will still run. YAY SPRING!!!

How is your ground dry enough to till already? I'm impressed! Nice!

Oh - and me, is that patch of snow across the ground behind that pole near Sam? I hate the clumps that stick around!

Wow! That snow went away in a hurry once good ol' Mr Sunshine made an appearance. :)

Sun is good. That's why I loved living in Colorado, over 310 days of sunshine a year. 310! I don't even think we hit 200 here. Okay, maybe 250.

What was I talking about again?

Spring is wonderful, isn't it? I am so glad that your bulbs survived. Soon they will bring so much beauty to your life!

YEAH! The meltdown didn't take nearly as long as you thought it would, did it?! We are getting ready for another 10 to 15 inches - which I will take as long as we continue to get into the 60s between storms!
