Oh hi. I seem to have inadvertently disconnected from the interwebs for quite a while now. My only excuse is that my kids were home for March break and they commandeered my computer. This year we didn't travel anywhere, and instead took part in some championship lounging and relaxing, interrupted only by regular bouts of sleeping in (kids, not me). It turns out that the official uniform of March break is pyjamas.
So really, you didn't miss anything. Oh, except that I cooked quite a bit. I even made some chicken soup. It was good.
There was a great deal of greyness, rain and thawing/flooding. Mud, mud, and more mud.
But today the sun is out and it's bright and drying things out nicely. And signs of spring are popping up everywhere.
