Yes folks (particularly you that live in the god forsaken spots), it's spring time. The sunshine is out. The flowers are blooming. And life is looking just a bit brighter. As I mentioned, I had a tough couple weeks at work - too much stress. Too many hours staring at tedious testing details. Not only hours at work, but hours in my sleep as I relived the tedium. So, with the forecast of a couple sunny days and a break in my work load, I told my manager I was taking a couple days off! And the world has become a new place.
GIVEN THE 65 DEGREE WEATHER!!!!, I hit the yard! Ignoring the nightmare laurel hedge and the weeds taking over most of the property, I focused on the easy to fix veggie beds. After a winter of growing cover crops they were ready for some tilling.
|Robust cover crops will (hopefully) bring happy veggies.|
|In a couple months these will be all ready for their crops.|
And the fun didn't stop there, a great workout, an afternoon of shopping (didn't actually buy anything, but fun none the less), some nice dog walks, a delicious dinner and margarita, some productive house projects and many episodes of Dexter. Utter bliss in a change in weather and a couple days off work. Happy springtime everyone!
And, so perhaps you all can share in the joy that is (at least temporarily my world), I will share some animal cuteness.
|They too find pure bliss in the sunshine.|
|Animals + shoes + and legs.|
