Looking back at my recent post [March Madness Already? 2/26] I believe my wish for the month of March was it to come in or out like a lion….leave like a lamb….make it peaceful….less muddy….
Honestly, it feels like we’ve been playing dodge ball with rain turn to snow turn to more rain to sleet [just enough to make school close] back to rain with temperatures teasing in the high sixties. I don’t even want to talk about our backyard. If there was any chance in the world my dogs would keep Wellies on they would have had their own spot by the back door for their durable rain boots. I know they are in the market of dog apparel but I refuse to purchase something that my two water-loving-mud-adoring-outdoor adventurous dogs will never keep on their feet. Would it save me from hosing down their paws or using our “paw bucket”….yes. My wish and hope and desire for April is less mud – meaning less rain. Allow the ground to dry and for me to get out there and design my dream courtyard.
College Daughter headed back to VT. Our break time was more eating and organizing the garage for “guess what I have in my car to bring home”. After helping College Daughter look for apartments and townhomes to rent for next year – I realized our oldest daughter will be ending her tenth year of college when our youngest begins her freshman year of college. I ate some more.
This week is spring break for Apple. We will take a road trip to visit family this week. We will spend some time with our friends from NYC, as well as take the newest member of the family along on a short road trip. Before we know it – Easter Sunday will be here and the month that promises sunshine and dry days…..April. humor me…..April will be sunny & dry!
Have a wonderful Easter ~ and if you are on spring break be safe and enjoy!
Thanks to Urban Habitat I can plan our courtyard to be not only inviting but dog friendly too! I just can’t wait to get started! I already said that didn’t I?
Happy happy spring joy ~ happy happy joy!
