Two days in a row now we have reached 79 degrees. The tulips will be happy when we go back down below 60 with a little rain for most of the next week.
But, Oh! The warmth feels so good and spring is so beautiful now.
Since we got back from Whidbey I have been busy with two appointments, Friday morning breakfast, the weekly grocery shopping, PT exercises, stationary bike work outs, and watching sports. Our hockey team, the Kraken, are down to game seven on Sunday. Will Colorado or Seattle advance? This evening we have a Sounders soccer match to watch on TV. That means it's a pizza night. Today, for the first time since my hip surgery, I put on my gardening clothes, strapped on my garden tool belt, got my five gallon bucket for support, and got down on the ground to do a little gardening. I have to be careful but my PT therapist showed me how to get up and down, and I spent a little time on my knees. Then Tom and I spent more time upright, rearranging and replanting some of our patio pots. When the rain comes this week we will be ready to go plant shopping.
There are chickadees in that birdhouse again, and Bewick's Wrens in the bird bottle on the front of the house. Our crow couple visits the lawn often.
I just finished reading The Lake House by Kate Morton. Connie of Far Side recommended it. It was long and complex, switching time periods and narrators often, and yet it was compelling, a good read.
The day is winding down. It's time to collect the mail and then settle down in my recliner and work my WORDLE and catch up on a few of your blog posts.
My days are full.
