My brother Steve says every time I watch an episode of anything on HGTV, it costs Bryan $100. I vigorously deny the accusation. Winters in The Cove are wet and chilly and dreary. Snow is great. We don't get much snow. There's nothing to plant. It's too cold and wet to paint anything. Bleh.
A couple weekends ago, I took a detour after Sunday lunch and showed Bryan 1960s basement ranchers in The Valley south of downtown. Then this Saturday, I walked out on the back patio and fell in love with our house all over again. The sun was shining. The weather was warm and breezy. The sky was blue. What's not to love? We roasted marshmallows in the fire pit Saturday night and sat on the patio Sunday afternoon reading while the kids played outside. Sweet bliss, my friends.
I am ready for Spring!!
