The Beautiful Spring Came

It's true, it was nice out today. The sun and warmth has sprung some green into the grass. It seemed like it would never happen, but I now have hope for "Green "day" (the first day the leaves on the trees make everything look green).

I'm pretty sure I saw the first swallow today. I didn't get a good look at it, but there is no other bird around here that flies like that. I felt a thrill in my heart as they are perhaps my favorite bird (aside from Grace of course).

We've had a busy few days socially - Friday Jo Ellen and Don came by for a visit that extended into the evening ; Saturday we had friends Trudie and Leo over for supper (vegan fare) ; and Sunday I had a visit with my parents and brother Graham. What fun!

This morning I spent a bit of time writing up the blog post for my other blog (weekly weigh-in today - down 6lbs in 3 weeks!), then I did the treadmill (55 min), and finally, I started loading up the freezable stuff onto the camper. It went fairly well. I think I have the majority loaded, and I still have room in a few more places. There's no where to store a case of beer though - who the heck designed that! The other crazy thing is that all the storage is on one side of the trailer. That side (drivers side) also has a heavy slide with cabinetry in it. The rig is going to be seriously out of balance, but I really don't know what to do to change it.

We are tracking the weather for an opportunity to have our shake down cruise - I can hardly wait!

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.
