When you think of sun worshippers, California or Florida dwellers probably come to mind. But it's us damp and grey Pacific Northwesterners who really know how to appreciate the sun when it makes a rare appearance. Work grinds to a halt so we can go soak up our yearly quota of Vitamin D.
|My superhero, off for the first big ride of the season!|
|Yes, that's all mud. Our dog is a swamp monster now.|
The spring weather also got us excited about the garden. We went exploring outside to see what was salvageable, and decided on a couple priorities. Next week we're going to work on a gate for the fence, and on restoring the chicken coop to usefulness. Stay tuned for posts about new chicks!
We did manage to squeeze in a little real work. We've started getting estimates from plumbers for the upstairs bathroom and the mudroom. The bathroom is going to take a lot more planning, but the mudroom project can happen in the next week or two. Since we've been using the mudroom as a makeshift shop/storage unit/dumping ground, it's going to take us at least that long to clean it out.
Let the shlepping begin!
|As soon as we're done basking in the sun.|
