Taste of Spring

This afternoon was absolutely beautiful. I got home from work at 3:30, and the three of us stayed out in the front yard all afternoon. Jeremy hung Evan's swing up in our front doorway, and he kept himself occupied with swinging while Jer and I did some yard work. We gathered up a lot of dead vegetation, and together trimmed up a pretty out of control wild rose bush. This particular rose is special to us because it was growing wild right next to the garage foundation when we bought our house. It's huge now, and has taken over the trellis we put up for it.

I have so missed the feeling of sun on my skin. It was warm enough to work in a t-shirt, and after we were done I fell asleep in a chair on our front porch. Heaven :) I hope this weather is here to stay (we've had snow in the past week, so who can say).

It was lovely yesterday and Dad & I were able to get a little of the afternoon sun ourselves. We spent the day learning about retirement choices and the time frame for making all the right decisions. I told Jeremy that the only thing that they didn't cover was long term living and funerals. By the time I get to retire that will be the next session I will be attending upon retiring.
Hope Evan enjoyed the sunshine and his swing. That sounds like my kind of afternoon.
Love, Grandma
