Come back soon

Yesterday was perfection. A mini Florida vacation in our own yard. We went to the flea market bright and early, and spent the entire day outdoors. More than 10 hours outside. I soaked up every ounce of sun and recharged my batteries. I fixed up my flea market finds (I will show them this week, so I can stretch out that glorious day a bit longer). I read my book .
The sky was blue. The sun was hot. It was 80 degrees. I wore my shorts. I got a little sunburn. You could literally sit in the yard and watch the bright green new grass shoot up out of the dark brown muddy earth.
We played games (Jack was playing a bit shy in the base of the tree) and yet we did nothing.
We grilled hot dogs. We ate outside with the sun shining down on us. By 7 pm we were all ready to fall asleep from so much fresh air.

Today the freezing rain and snow are coming.

Come back soon spring. We love you. We will miss you terribly.

  1. I agree. It was a fabulous weekend outdoors! Now I have to go clean lots of mud off of crocks and sneakers. LOL!

    Cheers! LA

  2. Sounds like a great day. I read that book; it was good. The snow and freezing rain are in Chicago right now. Ugh. Mark is trying to fly back from Arkansas this morning and everything is delayed.

    I hope spring comes back soon, too.

  3. I love weekends like that! We grilled out Saturday night, chicken fajitas. Had leftovers last night but it wasn't the same as fresh off the grill.

    It was 73 when I woke up at 5:45(don't ask) but by 9:30 I could see my breath. My daffodils bloomed last night but got beaten by the heavy rains, hopefully they'll spring back up, they didn't break.

    I'm staying out of the flea market/yard sales until my own "junk" is dealt with. I've got a huge pile, we'll have to take the extra seat out of the Suburban to haul it all away. Maybe by next weekend things will be as they should be.

    Sorry yall are getting freezing crud, that's not fun.

  16. Oh wow, sounds like fun. We got out yesterday to a civil war reenactment. Yeah, in California. But it was pretty cool. The best part seems to have been the duck pond, according to the toddler. She could have spent hours staring at the ducks, the geese, and the massively huge koi.
