It's been a long cold winter. One that probably isn't even over yet. We've had multiple snow storms, some counties in Washington State have been declared disaster zones, and of course the rains that are normal to this part of the country have made their presence known as well. It's been gloomy and dark and yucky here for the past few months. And my kids have spent most of the time cooped up in the house. It seems that the snow is only fun for the first few days. Not so much fun after a few weeks.
So today a strange thing happened. A brightness and dryness that I thought was only in my imagination. It was sun! It hasn't rained for two days.
I hear lawnmowers in my neighborhood.
My kids played outside.
I washed my windows. Seriously. I WASHED MY WINDOWS!
I've been going through my seeds, getting ready to start them indoors in our huge sunny window seat.
Isn't it amazing how a little sunshine can make life look a whole lot better?
