Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head

And hail and even some snow!  I just planted more of my flowers that I bought this weekend and was rained and hailed on!  Ahh the joys of spring time.  The smell of fresh mowed lawns, flowers blooming, and the sounds of outdoor fun all around!  I love it!  There are certain smells of spring and summer that take me back to childhood.  A number of those country scents take me back to living in Crow where we had a bunch of animals; dog, kittens, bunny, and ducks.  I love living in the country even if we are “in town” and not out on some property all alone.  While I’d love to someday have that piece of property and no neighbors, I don’t want my kids to be as isolated as I remember being.  I can’t wait for the weather to get really warm so we can walk down to the corner store and get an ice cream and then go play at one of the many parks that are close by and in walking distance.

I am looking forward to leisure days of summer and getting out into the great outdoors.  Yeah, I’ll admit it, I’m a fair weather girl.  Hiking in the rain or camping in the snow just don’t do it for me.  Aaron loves it and has really enjoyed snowshoeing this year but I’ll pass on that kind of winter time sports.  Summer, please hurry!
