It's been a bit of a cold and dreary week. The damp has seeped into my bones and I have been walking around with blue lips and white fingers. It might not have helped that we turned the heat off a couple of weeks ago, I love spring weather but so many cold wet days takes it's toll. It's ok though because the weather is only getting better from here. And plus there is so much green stuff happening in the world that I don't really mind being a soggy mess. The tree buds make me smile.
Easter came and went yet the mr is still finding plastic filled with candy in the yard. He was one of the people that hid the over 100 eggs so part of me thinks he hid a few in hard to reach spots for himself to find later.(or that's what I would have done) We had some littles spend the night, fling popcorn all over the place, watched Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them (finally) and made a catapult and a board game. Those littles man, they are some cool people. And worked, or tried to at least. Most of the work we need to do is outside right now and because the week has been so up and down with weather we have found ourselves in a up and down, run around, get in and get out type of week. Projects started and keep piling on and we just need a good few stretches of weather to make a dent in the list. I feel like this is what happens every year, but this year just seems like everything at once. It's probably just because we are getting old, or it's getting old. Either way.
Today is suppose to a gem of day which means we are going to be outside working. Windows need to be scraped and glazed, we are going to get out the new giant torch and start burning some of the siding for the house, and we need to get on building the raised beds for the veggies. (The little lettuce and kale plants are screaming at me for more space!) I will probably take some time to sit in the middle of the yard with a book and watch for sunshine, you know, to see where the garden beds should go. And coffee. Cups and cups of it because I think that is what I need today. Happy Spring guys!
Oh, and happy birthday Rick.

-Is It Safe To Eat Moldy Bread? The mr might find it annoying, but this is why I freeze all bread stuff after a few days so it won't mold.
