What does a girl say when she's taken an unannounced 6 month break from blogging? I was busy? I had a really stressful fall? My grandparents died? My boss abruptly departed? I had a baby?
Ha. I had a baby! In November! And she's fabulous, as indicated by the current state of things around here:
Tummy time is a bitch.
I start back to work full time on Monday and I'm really dreading it. Hanging out with these two has been a lot of fun.
In the meantime, it's apparently spring in these parts. Or, at least, near our south-facing front porch it is. The porch absorbs the sun's heat through the day and radiates it at night, creating a nice micro-climate.
The daylilly has some green in it.
These are crocus.
That is either hyacinth or alium. I'm not sure.
Even the daffodils in the east-facing drive way bed are popping up!
I'm looking forward to digging my fingers back into the dirt this spring. I have a whole litany of things I want to work on (sorry Dusty!). We're also helping my parents with landscaping at the lake and my sister with landscaping for the house she just bought (yesterday!). I'm using today's naptime to go through my box of seeds and decide what to plant in the garden this year.
It's not March yet, and I know there will be winter storms for at least another 8 weeks. But it's fun to dream!
