After The Storm

Tuesday morning was perfect spring, as you saw below.  After we laid all the soaker hoses and got pretty much all the garden planted, we went for lunch at our favorite pub for the best burgers anywhere. Tuesdays are 2-for-1 burger days, so even better.

By the time we got done eating, we left under rainy skies mixed with large blobs of snow/sleet which had morphed into a slow, much-needed drizzle by the time we got home.  Then it stopped and we just had overcast skies for an hour or so.  A couple of friends dropped by to get some veggie plants/flowers since we always have an excess and in the 30 minutes or so that they were there, the temperature dropped a good 20 degrees, the wind kicked up and the rain came down again.  Afterwards, the sun came out just in time to bathe everything in amazing light.

Whenever I am cross, upset, down, at odds with myself or with life in general, all I have to do is go outside and look around.  I am so blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.  May I always remember this and follow my own advice.
