graupel-ing" (our weather forecasters' favorite word this spring) long enough for us to get out and do some yardwork.
I finished raking up last fall's leaves and added them to the compost bin (I can't tell you how happy I am to be composting), mowed the lawn (and even got the mower started all by myself---this is MAJOR), Katie and I got the water turned on and the sprinklers going, Katie sprayed our giant crop of dandelions, and we contemplated where we are going to plant our veg and sunflowers. I think we still have a couple of weeks before we can actually put our starts in the ground, but there's a glimmer of hope that we might get to plant sometime soon.
Katie & I are feeling very proud of our handy-woman skills. Next, we attempt to fix our kitchen faucet that wakes you up with a spray of cold water aimed at about waist level when you turn the water on. Stay tuned.
