Whoa - it was winterwinterwinter and now I'm seeing little crocuses (croci?) everywhere. The last snow just melted last week and I still have to get some of the Christmas stuff out of the yard. Suddenly all the projects that went on hold at the beginning of winter are evident everywhere and I don't have my excuses anymore. We have to finish the gutters and pruning the big elm and cut up all the branches, get the leaves into the compost heap really, jumpstart the house painting and start looking at what we are going to do with the back yard so we can easily snow shovel when another winter like this one comes.
It's really quiet in this town after a month in LA. I miss the sirens and helicopters.
