Spring did finally arrive. With the official date noted on our calendars we hope, no we expect, a change in our weather. We think it will feel a bit warmer, fresher, with spring rains pouring over our gardens and sweetening the air.

Gain One Lose One
For days I looked forward to the coming weekend. Due to Presidents’ Day it would be a three-day weekend. I could just imagine all I would get done by gaining one extra day of leisure. Even more important I would get to wake up and decide what I would do that day. When you work full time, that is not a common situation.
