It's been a busy week. So much snow followed by so much shoveling, long waits in lobbies and doctors offices, and the head pressure that comes with drastic up and down weather. It flew in fast and finished hard and now I need a break.
The snow. So amazing an beautiful. It's been a couple of years sense we got a really good dumping around here and I have really missed it. But one thing became clear with all the snow. The mr and I are not spring chickens anymore and a day of shoveling really kicks our butts. I think that this is the last year that we are going to be hand shoveling the 4 driveways and either get a snow blower or just hire a plow. I don't mind a good shovel session but it gets old when you have to do it multiple times in multiple locations when all you really want to do is make snow angels and build a snow castle. We did make it out into the woods for our Valentines Day snowshoe which was fantastic as any day spent in the woods is. Nothing beatsa warm sunny day after a good foot of freshly fallen show.
And now it's basically summer, all the snow is melting and all I can think about is mud, longer days, and all the seeds I want to order. I am getting the spring bug.
Plans for today include not having plans besides being outside. Going to let the day do what it's going to do and just enjoy it.
