A very chilly cold front moved through our region yesterday, complete with freezing temperatures this morning. We will have a steady warm-up after tonight, but right now it’s still cold.
The wind was very strong, 30 m.p.h gusts! Most of the apricot blooms have landed on the ground or turned brown on the trees—if we have apricots this year I will be surprised.
I worked down at the little house all morning…dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, cleaning…come Saturday the kids from Craig, Colorado, will be home to spend 9 days in the little house. I will start a fire in the wood stove tomorrow and keep it going until they get here on Saturday…a nice clean, toasty warm house to spend Spring Break.
The tree house will once again have life in it, and the swing in the front yard will fly through the air with little kids upon it.
I will stand outside and hear (again) the joyful laughter of delighted children at play. Off and on there will be grandchildren walking over to see us…to check out the snacks (prepared just for them, but they won’t know that), hang out with either Grandpa or myself, maybe climb into our tree, or see if Grandpa will either take them for a ride, or let Blade —now age 13–drive the 4-wheeler, so they can ride.
9 full days…9 full days! What a delightful thought.
Easter Sunday all our children and their mates will come for Easter dinner and a egg hunt.
This Grammy’s heart is sure to to be full unto bursting!
Your very excited friend,
