Spring has Sprung

The weather is getting warmer and my toes are tingling for sunshine.  We have been working out in the yard trying to get our pool area ready for summer.  As we were working in the yard, we discovered that our onion smelling grass is actually wild onions!  I can’t believe it.  We have millions of them.  I harvested some and they are quite good and beautiful!  I actually like them in a clear glass vase!  A perfect spring centerpiece!  It’s wonderful having a crop of something that just grew itself!

We got our driveway fixed and paved yesterday.  If anyone recalls we had to take down the tree, that housed the squirrel, that ate our cars, that cost us thousands in the house that nature built!

It looks lovely now.  Although you can see the patch, at least there isn’t a huge hole in the middle of our driveway anymore where the tree used to be!

Easter is coming up and I’m looking forward to hiding eggs for Aden.  I just can’t believe how smart he is becoming.  We colored eggs this week.  Martha Stewert I ain’t but it was fun anyways.   I’m am trying to relax about this holiday.  I don’t want to go crazy over a basket or the perfect outfit. It’s about family and hanging out and making memories, ie: laughter!

Aden is quite the parrot now which means I have to curb my language, which is not good; the language I mean.  I need to remember words like, “sugar,” and “fiddlesticks.”  Somehow those things just don’t come to mind when I’m falling over with my son in my arms and his sippy cup just hit the truck tire that I just ran over roadkill with.  Hmm.  Yum.

It wasn’t a rabbit.  At least I don’t think so.

Happy Easter!
