Today, for the first time this year, I loved Spring. Why? It stopped raining just long enough for me to take a nice long look at it without glaring through my windshield wipers, peeping out from under the brim of an umbrella or peering longed face through my rain-spotted bedroom window thinking "for the love of god make it stop!" Then it drizzled, but hey I got to enjoy it for a little while. Now everything is green and fresh and new. So I'll share with you a few things I did when it stopped raining now and then over the past few days. And I'll share my pretty green pictures.

Sunday: Big Daddy took the girls out to our pond to play with his remote control boat.....

Please take note of the pond SCUM in our pond.
I'll blame that on the rain, whether that makes sense or not.
Remote Control Boat + Pond Scum = Stationary Remote Control Boat (also 2 disappointed little girls)

Well Daddy cannot not stand to see long faces on his little sweethearts so we loaded up and headed off to Daddy's Work.
The pond at Daddy's work was much more Remote Control Boat Friendly.........

It was a fight for the remote! And maybe for just a moment Big Daddy didn't wish he had a son and was quite OK with his Remote Fevered little girls.

Remote Control Boat + Clear Pond = Happy Sophia

So while we were there and before the Thunderstorm was due, we took a walk around the Golf Course. This actually became a nature walk......

See the deer between the trees...She stood there and watched us watching her for a while, she ate a little more and then made the girls giggle when she went leaping back into the woods with her little white tail straight up in the air.

I little further down we stopped along a wooden bridge that was built over the conservation land that the Golf Course is built around and spotted quite a few little froggies splashing around in the water........

We could feel rain drops every now and then (at least in between the mosquito bites) so we headed back up to the Explorer. On the way Big Daddy spotted these.....

We watched a whole line of them crawl down the trunk of the tree weaving a white line "whatever it is they make" along behind them. Quite interesting.

We made it home just in time to watch the Thunderstorm (my favorite part of spring.)Big Daddy and I snuggled on the couch and watched The Notebook. We both cried. Hard. Went to sleep holding hands. And woke up the next morning, in the same position.

Monday: Boring. Depressing. Lonely. Raining. That's all I'll say.

Tuesday: Isabella's last day of dance class for the year. Another nice thing about spring: The end to all things that are scheduled in my life. So a few of us went to Kimball's for Ice Cream to celebrate!

Her recital is Sunday and my Mom, Dad and Sister are all coming up from PA YEY!

Then this afternoon as I sat on my porch a family of Geese came waddling by.....

This made me smile. Your smiling too, aren't ya?

Oh and see the Wild White Rose at the top left of the picture, it's now in a vase in my kitchen making my house smell really pretty........

You know what else is making my house smell pretty? These lilacs that Big Daddy picked for me at work and brought home to me on Saturday all wrapped up in a wet paper towel...Hand picked lilacs from my Big Daddy, that's enough to make me love Spring!

    Don't feel bad, I can't see it either on the blog, you can totally see the deer in the original picture...it like disappeared on the blog, spooky!
    Can anyone else see it?

    serioulsy HW, can you circle the deer, cause i really can't see it and at this point i have no choice but to assume you didn't really see a deer and are laughing your (smaller than mine) ass off at us fools who got this close (holds fingers 2 centimeters apart) from the computer screen searcing for the deer....

    I can't see the deer either... But what lovely pictures. Your girls are beautiful and I love that bit about you and Big Daddy falling asleep holding hands and waking in the same position - made me all emotional. But then not seeing the deer made me a little emotional as well so let's not dwell on the precarious nature of my emotions. Lovely, Housewife!

    Okay, can't see the deer or the frogs - you tell me what is wrong, and what is building the white thing, because I don't know what those are either. Help! Someone call the eye doctor!

    I can see the deer. She's looking right at us and she's skinny (like her photographer) so she's easy to miss.
    And the holding hands/sleeping/The Notebook/thunderstorm thing has me sitting here at work bawling my eyes out. I had to shut my office door and take a "personal" moment.
    And the picture of smiling Sophia made me tear up too. And the picture of the flowers from Big Daddy.
    Someone must have given me an extra dose of Estrogen this morning.

    Paying bills, vehicle repairment, school fees, rents and therapeutic bills all rely upon
    that limited salary. Check the listings in your area to see if
    or when there are some lenders close to you before you go, and look live on the internet.
