Two sides

Two sides. To every story, and every season.

Spring…The Good Side

Spring…The Bad Side

You never know just what you’ll find when you venture into the back yard for the first time in weeks. No, not an earthquake or an especially aggressive deer…just good ol’ mom nature settling the ground. Clearly our couldn’t-be-easier fire ring kit isn’t quite what we hoped for. So, now we add “dig concrete footer” to our already long list of house projects. Mike swears he won’t work on this before working on the front porch, but really…how can we not?

Two weeks away, and even on this lamb of a day (67 degrees!), the spring lion is charging in, roaring to go.

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so
pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity,
prosperity would not be so welcome.
