Spring, finally

We are finally starting to emerge from our cocoon.  I've started to be able to take a breath again, and look up and around again.  The beauty didn't leave while I wasn't paying attention.  That is reassuring.

The adjustment to homeschooling is coming along well,

and even though this year has been a record long dreary winter, the days are much longer now, and there are longer spells between rain storms.

The streams in the nearby foothills are swollen with snowmelt.

And I can feel that the sunny days are not too far away now.

Can you feel it too?

BBQ tonight

First evening stitching outside this year.  Amazing how warm 60 degrees can feel after a long winter.
