This week is spring vacation for Shane, so we get to spend lots of time with him. Today we were outside for a good part of the day working on the yard. Tim came out and did a huge amount of work around the house, too. I must say, the yard does look pretty wonderful at this point. When the snow finally melted away all that was left was a gross, muddy wasteland. Now it has dried up a bit and has been raked. The flowers around the house are just starting to bloom and I planted a few herbs and some tomatoes in a few pots, too. We also hung Nora's swing up. Initally she was not at all interested, but after a few tries she started to really like it.
After spending the afternoon crawling around in the garden, Nora was ready for a bath. I was a little surprised the water didn't turn a nice shade of tan when she got in, but then again I had added an extra shake of her milky bath powder.
She was ready for bed soon after, probably due to the fact that she only had one nap today. Yup, there is a reason this blog is named so. Good night, everyone!
