Since I've Been Gone


I finished my paint job,
and today it feels good to be home again!

Nine days of painting at somebody else's house...
all I could think about was how nice it 
would be if someone was doing my 
spring cleaning!!

The wind has been howling (what's new)
for the last couple days,
but today might be the day I've been 
waiting for to hang out sheets 
and wash some very dirty windows!!

Here's a little recap of the last two weeks
since I've been away...

Spring is here to stay and it feels and smells wonderful!...



Some of the migrating geese have 
chosen their spots to set up and nest...




The cranes have arrived...
we spotted them on a foggy day,
feeding in last year's corn field...





We took a little road trip to Kansas City...

Our grand-daughter turned two,
all of her little friends showed up
and at the end of the day
Grandpa and Grandma
looked about like this old sedan...





The girls were excited
and we all had a great time!




Trees were blossoming in K.C., the forsythias
 were about done!  Strangely though, our yard
is just as green as down there and our lilacs
are pushing their luck this early!!




Signs of spring everywhere...








Time to bring some freshness indoors
and hike down a country road without a coat!!


Spread some sunshine today!

Hugs,

I love an old beat up car,wish they could talk...
from the sister in the back seat, "He's touching me!"
or dad yelling "Settle down back there!"

I love the old car. You made me laugh with the comment. I sometimes feel like that after a day with the kids and grandkids. Great photos.
