Sunday was such a stormy day that it was a real blessing to have Monday be so nice! We all went for a walk at noon and later, went out and bought strawberry plants to put on the deck in planters. The kids played outside for a bit. Spring is on its way, right?
Wrong. Wednesday it began to snow. And snow. And snow! All day. All night. Chad went out and played in it. We got 1-2 inches that stuck until the next day. It melted but it continued to snow/hail/rain. Today - more snow/hail/freezy rain. I'm freezing. It's a good thing I didn't put away my winter stuff (what little I have).
Of course, we ran out of firewood at the door so Chad (brave soul) moved more wood up from the front stack. It was icy which makes it kind of scary. A nurse Todd works with slid on the ice today and hit a parked car. This is the end of March for goodness sake!
My dh went out and bought 2 guitars, one for himself and a smaller one for the kids. Alec has expressed an interest and since we want him to do something musical, this seems to be a start. Todd is teaching himself, Alec and me. Todd looked pretty cool, walking into the courtyard out front carrying a guitar (twice). It has been nice, listening to soft guitar twanging/strumming/thrumming. I've learned 7 notes so far - it's fun!
Chad has postponed his euphonium playing for now as it hurts to play with braces. But he's gone back to playing piano and that's also been really nice to hear.
Our strawberries and daffodils have survived the snow and ice, so far. There's no let up in sight until Monday. Send me some warm thoughts, o.k?
