>If you don’t like Wisconsin weather, wait…


One month ago, our neighborhood looked like this. —>

<-----Two weeks ago, we saw this.
Now? Well, yesterday I drove to the lovely town of Winneconne in dense fog, so dense that I almost got lost on the way home because I didn’t see any landmarks. Wait — I couldn’t see any landmarks on the way in! That’s why!
Today, I braved the remaining mud in our yard and raked old leaves away from the sprouting tulips and daffodils so that they can bloom and be beautiful. I looked in on a winter’s worth of compost, too. Ooo — it’s beautiful, too. I have one more week of school before I get a spring break and the kids can start complaining that “Mom’s playing in the dirt again!” It’s okay; they say it with a smile. They know if makes me happy — and makes them food.

Share and Enjoy !

  1. >Our daffodils are in full bloom.

    It’s great!

    Winter’s over, and Nature is painting the landscape with her full pallette of colors.

  2. >My favorite ritual is airing out the house. Opening the windows and doors, letting the fresh spring air permeate the house, dispelling all icky, rancid pockets of air. The favorite after effect? The bedroom. I love the smell of clean sheets that have been airing out all day long. — I’m kind of excited. This will be our first spring in our new house, with our own yard. I might even get to plant a garden! I’ll start with some windowboxes on our balcony.
