Day 101 - First Day of Spring

And it felt like the first day of spring, too! Sunny. Warm. The forsythia is blooming. Delicious smells outside of earth and fresh air. We spent the morning straightening up and opening windows. Then in the afternoon we puttered around outside, raking flower beds, cleaning up wayward leaves. My husband trimmed bushes and the boys helped with the wheelbarrow. The dog romped in the backyard and the boys threw the tennis ball for him. Our cat sunned herself on the back porch and then, to truly celebrate, we grilled chicken and ate at the picnic table. Lovely, joyful, spring day!
