Declaring it Porch Time
The wood pile tells me so. I should I say lack of a wood pile. I did not even shovel the snow yesterday. It is going to melt very soon anyway, and the scent on those sheets is so wonderful - natural "medication" for a good night's sleep.
The sun is blinding me at through the front window now. That has to be a sure sign of spring.
The porch is calling me...........oh wait!!
The kids reminded we we always get snow the last week of March. Hmpf. A portable fold-up chair is now in the hallway, ready to tote in and out, when porch time (despite my kids logic on the subject) is needed.
In the meantime, I'll make some campfire starters, and dream of camping. I had just enough beeswax to make two dozen fire starters. The Island (and campground) is calling. Then again, there are always new places to explore.
I've got another huge stack of books from the library. Once I finish chores up here today, I plan to sift through it and see if any can help us with locating more scholarship applications for our 18 year-old.
