Spring Time

Spring came early this year and I am so very grateful.  Everything is blooming and growing.  Sun shine mixed with spring rain.  It’s all good, really.

Except, of course, for the kidlets.  I swear, every week they bring home a new sickness just in time for the weekend.  I’ve had to sit inside and look longingly out the window for the last few weeks while I nurse a snotty and feverish kid.  Nothing nasty.  But it knocks them off their feet for the weekend.  I get them all patched up and send them back out into the world where they promptly ingest a new germ de jour.  As a result, I’m feeling a bit hampered.  I’d love to kick into spring cleaning, attack the garden, get the deck ready for use.  Instead, I find myself stuck on the sofa watching an endless stream of Pokemon.  Thank goodness for books!

Between the illness and cancelling cable, my book reading has gone a bit wild.  This is a good thing.  I snuck out to Powells yesterday and stocked up.  For Leina I found The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and I cannot wait to get her started on it.  I remember being home sick from school and reading this series all in a row.  I just couldn’t get enough of it.  That was eons ago and I’ve forgotten most of it so rereading it to her will be a pleasure.

I need to unearth the camera a post some more pictures.  I need to get back to updating this blog.   But with the sun shining and the flowers glowing, it’s going to be a hard thing to do!
