Don’t blink…

The difference a month can make.  April 3rd we were still digging out from a massive blizzard.

ice march 31 5

May 3rd we were digging our shovels into loads of gravel.


One month.  Craziness.  We have been busy burning leaves, raking, picking up branches and twigs seeing exactly how nasty Ol’ Man Winter really was to us this year (like we didn’t know).

Our first spring at The Hideaway is very much welcomed, for sure.  It’s fun to see the spring flowers popping up everywhere that we missed out on last year.  The grass is greening up nicely, the ice has left the river and the birds have returned singing their pretty tunes.

I don’t think I have ever looked forward to or enjoyed a spring season so much in my life.  My perspective of it all is so different now.  Who knew?  Even the ‘work’ we have to do isn’t ‘work’.  Everything seems to get done with little-to-no effort.

As I sit in The Abeebo for the evening I’m thrilled with all we accomplished today ~ as a family.

Until next time…
