A Breath of Spring! February 18, 2009

A typical February vacation day (from school) yesterday included:

  • an early (8:30 am)  morning dentist appointment (ugh!)
  • a trip to DMV (ugh–wrong day to go right after a holiday!)
  • visit to the Town Hall re: Motor Vehicle Taxes (a credit b/c we had been double-billed!)
  • working on preparing Income Taxes (fun!)
  • assorted paperwork for school, coursework, etc. (always fun!)

The high points of the day definitely included:

  • lunch out with my daughter
  • a visit to her high school, where she teaches Biology, Environmental Science, Botany, etc., to water the plants in the greenhouse (so they don’t die over school vacation)
  •  a stop at my husband’s  current construction site to see the latest progress on an incredible project, (where he’s building million-plus-dollar homes for some very lucky people!)
  • a stroll through our local nursery/garden center to chat with the owner/friend/neighbor and to enjoy a BREATH OF SPRING!!!

Here, I offer some beautiful shots from inside the greenhouse to ensure us all that spring IS on the way, although a mix of snow/rain/sleet is predicted here for later today . . .

I couldn’t resist bringing  home some pansies and organic parsley to brighten up the inside, until it’s warm enough to plant outside.
