Even though today would best be described as "gloomy", the colors around here are more "in the pink".

I couldn't stand looking at the previous post and all that snow one minute more. This past week brought warmer temps, a lot of rain, and melted snow...hopefully melted for the rest of the year! It's been a complete weather turnaround. My yard is very soggy and we're expecting a crew coming to put some new drain tiles in to divert the water to a culvert. We hit the 70's in the temperature department and worked outside all day on Saturday. Windows and screens were washed, the lawn mowed and trimmed and deck furniture and the deck it's self cleaned. Jack took some junk into town for Spring cleanup week. At Church today we had Sunday School classes being held on the lawn and at the end, tons of little ones picking dandelions and making lovely bouquets to give their Moms. Everyone was mowing grass this weekend or working outdoors. It was hard to stay inside! Since Tuesday we have had sunshine. The weather folks say it's the longest period of dry weather since December...and I believe it! Perfect pretty much describes this weekend. As I was walking into Walmart on Saturday morning I noticed the garden section open and could smell the flowers and dirt...I just had to stop in. I found some pansies on clearance and bought a few. It's still way too early to plant anything here but I couldn't resist and pansies usually don't mind chilly weather.

SATURDAY, APRIL 9th...SPRING..I THINK.

If you lived in Ashland, the talk around the water cooler or the operating room today was the crazy weather we had this weekend. I found out I wasn't the only one who mowed grass while the snow flakes flew...makes me feel a bit less crazy! Sad faces and angry curses were talked about as it snowed outside today too. However, it didn't stick on the ground. Unlike yesterday. We woke up to this view:

In early December I said I did something I had never done before. I even blogged about it. Well, today I did something similar that I had never done before. It all had to do with the lawn. I actually mowed our grass in December. We had a very mild Fall and it needed one last trim. Today I mowed for the first time this season. We've had a very mild end of Winter and early Spring. The grass needed a trim. What's so weird about that? Well, as soon as I hopped on the mower, the first snow flakes began to smack me in the head! It was a lovely sunny morning...just a bit chilly. It got cloudier as the afternoon came on and because we're having the kiddos over tomorrow for a late Easter gathering, I wanted to make sure they would be able to see the eggs we hide without tall grass everywhere. So, despite the snow flakes I mowed.
