I'm sitting here looking out the window thinking that it looks like a nice almost spring day then...BOOM...the cold hits me when I take Nick out. From my window I can see Daffodils with blooms on the verge of opening...they're probably dead now thanks to this really cold night we just had. What cruel tricks Mother Nature plays on us making it look all springy outside and then bringing a hard freeze like last night. Oh well, it's just 1 little dose of reality to bring my Spring Fever back under control. While I would like to see snow waist deep (and then have it vanish immediately after a day or so...no refreezing and icy roads, just pretty snow) some of the warm days we've had lately have put me into getting ready for summer mode. It's time to think about getting the boat ready for water, getting spring clothes out of storage, seeing the grass turn green, etc. I think maybe I'm feeling a little deprived of sunlight since I can't see outside from my desk at work, but I'm ready for the weather to warm up and enjoy some warm sunshine.
Could today have been a more perfect prelude to spring. I know it is still getting cold at night but today was a wonderful day to go outside. It means there is light at the end of the tunnel and longer days are coming. YIPPEE!!!
Well, 2008 seemed to roll by pretty fast. There sure have been a lot of changes in the Rogers' household. This year Danny and I are both employed full time...something that we haven't seen since January of 2005. Now that we are working, we have a long list of things that need doing to the house that have been "on hold" waiting for income to do them. The first thing was a new kitchen floor...we had a "little" nudge on that one with the Great Flood of 2008. The new floor is great and when I decide where I want everything to go (it would be too easy to put it back like it was), the kitchen will be back together. For the most part everything is back in; I am washing the glasses, good plates, etc. that were wrapped in newspaper before they go back up. I've made a dent and only have maybe 2 more dishwashing sessions left before being complete. I'm anxious to see what 2009 has in store for us all. Hope everyone has a great 2009!
P.S. I know it is largely wishful thinking, but the days are already seeming longer--don't you think sundown is a little bit later??? :)
Just a quick update to let all know that the kitchen is complete. The contractor got all the cabinets back in without any problems. As a little extra plus, the clock/timer on the oven works now (when he took it out, he said he didn't think it was wired correctly...not a shock after some of the other wiring issues we had when we bought the house). Lots to do today as we have to finish Christmas shopping and put the kitchen back together. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
My name is Jane and this is the story of my family. My husband, Danny, and I have been married for 6 years. On December 26, 2003, we adopted our son, Nick - a beautiful Jack Russell who was approximately 10 weeks old. This is our story.
