Enjoying a beautiful day

It’s a Sunday afternoon and I’m sitting here at my desk trying to get some editing done while the kids play. Outside it’s a beautiful day. After three solid months of colder weather, and even snow, the weather has turned to sunny and warm, with a gentle breeze.

The birds are in the trees out doors and the cats are lounging around. Yesterday I got out and cleaned up a couple of the garden beds and planted a few short-season, cool weather items that hopefully will grow before the weather turns hot.

Inside I have a small green house holding my tomato seedlings waiting for the cool weather to go away so I can plant them out in a few weeks.


The kids are playing on the patio right now, drawing with chalk and joking around with a friend.

Soon one or more of them will hop on a bike and take a ride around the yard.

That’s their latest thing – riding around the yard.

 Early last week, the kids dug trenches to drain the water out of the “pond” I showed you a few weeks ago, and now there’s bumps and bridges, and all the makings of a modest dirt/mountain bike track.

Riding Bike in the Backyard

So they’ve been riding around on that. They won’t even go out in the cul-de-sac to ride now, because it’s so much fun to race around the yard with all the bumps and obstacles :)

It’s a wonderful beautiful day. And while I need to work to meet my deadlines, it’s a awesome thing to look up from my desk and see the kids playing and riding around.

In fact right now, Jazzy (Kate’s little Bichon) is chasing Kate (on her bike) around the yard.

Here is what it’s all about… enjoying a beautiful day, nature, and the companionship of family and friends.

Gotta love it!
