zelda does a little window washing before school.

it’s the officially our weekend since zach has the morning off.  zelda was up and at ‘em after falling asleep in bed with mama and papa in our bed last night.  at some point papa must have carried off to her own room, but i didn’t notice until i heard her padding down the hall this morning.  i guess the rhythmic sounds of their snoring (both were super tired last night) put me right out.

zach's inaugural brew

an inaugural home brew attempt that was tasty if not a little over carbonated. hopefully zach will have a little more luck this time.

now that zelda is off to school, zach is at the neighbor’s house making a batch of beer. and i took advantage of the sunny morning with a leisurely stroll down the street and back.  it’s so wonderful to be walking again even if it still requires crutches.
it’s been a nice slow start to the weekend, which is just what we need since tomorrow grandma marla comes to lend a hand while zelda is out of school all of next week for passover.  it should be a fun adventure filled week.  have a wonderful weekend!

a little unorthodox but the bathroom gets the best light in the house with its southern exposure

spring has sprung, just mainly inside where we started some bulbs in pots.  although i can’t get out there to see, apparently our tulips are up in the garden bed on the south side of the house as well.


we know its possible for this snow to melt since the neighbor’s yard is almost snow free, but in the meantime we’ll enjoy the moose tracks in the snow a little longer

unfortunately our front yard on the north side of the house still has a long way to go before its snow free.
