Hello, hello!

After what seemed like the longest winter ever, things are finally blooming here.

We had a lot of rain this week. One morning we discovered some new friends.

N. was enthralled with the slugs and did not want to go to school. Once things were dry the slugs took off.

Today we are busy planting. Mark went to get more dirt. I'm supposed to be planting some vegetables right now. Sshhh! Don't tell him!

I'm happy to be back after that small break. All three of us were sick with upper respiratory infections and we are all on the mend. In other news, Mark's grandmother had a stroke while in the hospital being treated for something else. We did not think she would make it and were called to the hospital more than once to say our goodbyes. She surprised everyone by pulling through, though now she has a lot of rehabilitation to do. We are so happy she's made it this far.

And now I'd better get those vegetables planted before Mark comes home and finds me slacking off!

It's good to see you back on-line. I hope that Mark's grandmother continues to recover, and that the rest of your family stays healthy!

I am glad that Grandma is doing better and you are all over you yuck. We too have had lots of rain and crazy spring temperatures. one week it is 8's and this week it is cool again with highs in the 60's. Hopefully we won't all get colds too. Good luck with your plants. Glad to see you back. :-)
