The weekends go so quickly and this weekend offered a much needed respite from a very busy week. For the first time this year, we spent an evening on the patio laughing, drinking (oh yes we did), and enjoying the night air. While the clouds put on an interesting show, and the temperatures foretold of warmer nights ahead, we knew the sky was a precursor of Sunday's storm.
Despite Sunday's rain (with a bit of snow thrown in for good measure), spring planting is just around the corner and, in fact, the potato patch is ready to go. Last fall Smith planted garlic which has grown well during this year's unseasonable warmth. The spinach and lettuce planted, as a gamble, earlier this year have also made good progress. To say we're anxious would be an understatement.
Speaking of anxious... Kym is quite anxious (and excited) about March Madness and would like your help to determine between her two finalists. Voting (on Kym's blog) will be open from Monday through Wednesday before 9:00am EDT and all voters will be eligible for a prize package (to be determined by random drawing). Kym's prize packages are always wonderful. If you mention my name it could give me an advantage. Happy Voting!
