It Doesn't Pay To Make Predictions.

Oh Neil Finn, how right you are. Four Seasons In One Day pretty much sums up April around here, in a sentimental nutshell. I can forgive April, the fickle lady, though, because my anniversary is this month! It's true, this month will mark six years of wedded bills. I mean bliss.

And though the rumors of my dad showing up at the ceremony with his shotgun aren't exactly accurate (it was a .22), it is true I didn't get to toast the event with champagne. Six years and a happy family later I have no regrets.

As if April needed anything more than an anniversary and her own natural beauty, last year the family grew by two fabulous Taurus boys. My brother and my husband's brother became proud Papa's within two weeks of each other. We'll be making the long haul up to P-Town in a couple of weeks to celebrate with the nevvies. I have just one question for you kids: Why couldn't your birthday coincide with the 40% off sale at Fabric Depot? Just a thought.

I'll leave you all with a picture of idyllic Easter. I realize it's still March in this photo, but not much has changed. It might be a little colder now. This was Easter, in Boring. What you can't see in the picture very clearly is the SIDEWAYS RAIN. And the enormous snow-capped mountain, of course.

I know I know I know..... the weather has driven me to drink. Coffee that is, but who doesn't?

I tell people, "oregon winters are beautiful, it's the SPRING that is dreary. We get ready for an end to winter and THATS when it rains endlessly. All the grey and wet!"

It's been so cold too, and so changable. I have five yards of dirt in the driveway and can't seem to get more than a few wheelbarrows full into the raised beds, and it starts hailing again....

But THIS weekend, Baby, THIS weekend we get to show off our white leggs under a scorching hot 70degree plus Oregon spring sun! Whoo hoo!
