I finally had Winter kinda figured out - we went skiing, we read books, we had a routine - and for the past month Spring has been lurking, waiting to gobble up any peace I'd managed to establish with yardwork and longer days and new routines. Admittedly, I've never before pictured Spring as a menacing force.
Through the amazing help of friends and my mom, bikes are ready for summer, the yard is just about spring-ready, the garden is tilled, and I've gotten to enjoy some good time digging around in the dirt and nurturing new life (mine, my kids', and maybe a few plants along the way). And Spring and I are ok with each other.
