After a lazy morning, we got to the field for LL game warm ups at 10:45. I got my walk in for the day – 40mins worth by making one lap around the fields and then going around the entire neighborhood block which is pretty darn big and very very hilly so it was a goood walk. Now that I have been walking more, I am no longer feeling so sore after which is an improvement over a couple of weeks ago! The team won again 7-6 after falling behind 6-1 making for a very exciting game. Weird thing was – it was COLD at the field. Sun never really came out and the wind from the ocean is quite bracing. Still, my plan was to clean up the weeds and one dead bush in the side yard beds so I bundled up and went to work after lunch. And…then the sun came out! Blazing. Which was actually kinda nice. I finished up and then sat out back and read for awhile. Sportsboy had come home and hit the books to finish 2 of 4 subjects and was reading quietly inside. On his own. Do you know the boy who took almost a full year to read the first three Harry Potter books has now finished books 4-6? He started book 6 just a week ago.  He kept on marvelling at how fast I went through them, but I told him it was just practice. I think he gets it now :-) The challenge will be what to get him into when he is done with HP.

How about you dear reader? Any signs of spring around you?

  1. Beautiful flowers. :)

    The crocuses are finally blooming, and the trees have that green aura about them that usually means the leaves are going to unfurl in a few weeks.

    Best of all, no snow!!

  2. The plum trees in full bloom. A few plants that have been pushing up for the past two weeks, although we’re afraid to move the leaves off of them; waiting for that last freeze that gets ya.
