We’re back in Minnesota. Arrived Wednesday about 6:00 pm after
a marathon drive from Colorado. We left about 9:00 PM Tuesday after
dinner with the kids and ended up driving straight through.
Needles to say, we were tired when we got here. Once again we had the van packed
to max. I got most of my things out of the van and dumped into the house
before collapsing into bed. Thursday was a nice day here. The sun was shining
and the wind was on low speed. Groceries were purchased and things
were put away. It was even nice enough to sit on the screen porch for dinner.
The grass NEEDS to be cut and we are waiting for the lawn service to come. This
morning (Friday), it is gray, windy, and looks like it will rain again any moment.
The gardens are loving this wet spring and the weeds aren’t even too bad.
This is the first time that we are really seeing the gardens so it’s been fun.
Two of my favorites are in full bloom, lilacs and a fern peony. I grew
up with lilacs and peonies so this is a nice welcome to a MN summer.
Now we are trying to figure out what one of the birds is that
we see flying around. It is a large white bird and we are debating what it is.
I’ll try to get a picture, post it and maybe someone will be
able to help me with the identification.
We are hoping for some nice weather to enjoy the outdoors here.
The weatherman is conspiring to keep us indoors as they are
forcasteing more rain for the next few days. I think that we have seen more
rain here in a day than we do in Colorado in a month. Quite a change.
Have a good day.
LIFE IS SHORT. ENJOY EVERY MOMENT
