It may have taken a little longer than I wanted, after such a cold winter, but spring is finally here and it is beautiful! The flowers are blooming, the trees are greening, and the onions need a’ mowing.
We spent this last weekend soaking in every bit of it. In fact, as I write this, I am still a bit flushed from being outdoors the whole day, but I am hoping it is only the heat that has me red and not my first sunburn of the season. I do hate getting burnt the first day that I spend outside.
It wasn’t all yard work that we did either, there was a little bit of fishing as well. In fact, we even got a few days head start with a short fishing trip last Thursday evening. Even though there were no fish to be caught that night, the beautiful sunset more than made up for it, in my opinion of course. The boy could care less about sunsets and really all he wanted was to catch a fish. He didn’t have to wait too long after though, because bright and early Sunday morning, he had a few that managed their way onto his hook and into the boat. Only briefly because they were all too small to keep, but it was a start to hopefully a really long fishing season. It has been two years since we last fished, and I think we all missed it.
Now it’s time to put the fun aside and get back into the books. I may have let the boy have some slack with school work last Friday, so today there is plenty that needs to be done. Oh, and I must not let grading all those papers get away from me. I want to end school with nothing school related left to do. High hopes, everyone, high hopes!
Fifteen school days left to go… Wow, is that all? Hope everyone is enjoying their spring.
