Not all of them -- but enough to smell the air and hear the birdsong. We are having a short spurt of 50+ degree days here in Northeast Ohio and I'm loving it. It's too early to do any serious garden work beyond picking up sticks from the lawn and gravel out of the gardens along the driveway. With a primarily clay soil, messing in the dirt too early is never a good idea. But it's not too early for a more leisurely walk or to sit on the front porch and stitch.
A few snow crocus and aconite are blooming and lots of snowdrops.
And it's nice enough to hang the bedding outside to dry!!

Just looking through my photos for the week in preparation for writing this blogpost and there aren't many??? Why is that? Have I been that idle for the past week or so? My hands maybe, but my head no! Like many of you, I'm waiting for my first vaccine shot and that has led me to think about how I will exit the current state of things.
What will I do first? Who will I visit? When can I leave?
For sure, the first visit will be to my daughter and her family who live over 300 miles away. Since my oldest granddaughter was born in 2006, I've made the trip to see them four to six times a year. This is the longest I've gone without seeing them and I'm getting antsy to go.
These are pictures from BIG trips I took with each of them the summer of 2019 and I'm so glad I did it when I did!! They are both doing virtual school and are a bit bored -- so my grandson has been puttering with map and chart creation and my granddaughter has become a thrifting clothing fan! My gifts to them at Christmas reflected these new interests and I'm looking forward to seeing what they've created!
