Yet another busy weekend

We had another crazy weekend. On Saturday, we were hit with a surprise snowstorm (talk about a belated April Fools' joke!), but we had stuff to do -- no time to slow down for a snowstorm! Since Paul once again heads to the Netherlands this week, he needed to prepare for the trip, so that's what we did. We got him some new black pants and a couple of ties -- so he can look all schnazzy and important. And he got a haircut, which turned out to be more of a disaster than anything else (we then spent an hour at home trying to fix it).

We also went out and made a big homeowner purchase. We bought a lawnmower.

As for the freak snowstorm, it was over by Saturday night, and then it all melted again. Most of the flowers seem to have survived -- since more and more are popping up every day (I just saw something pink in the front yard this morning -- and we've got daffodils in the back). And the weather is definitely back to normal. It was in the upper 60s yesterday (say, about 19C or so), and it's supposed to be back to 75 today (that's 24C).

Thanks to Daylight Savings Time, it's light out until at least 8 now, so we can go for a nice long walk after work and still have dinner before the sun sets. Now we just need to get some patio furniture -- so we can have dinner on the deck.

I can tell that yard is going to take up a lot of your time this summer, but it's exciting when it's your own. Sure beats sitting on a little patio overlooking a parking lot!

Enjoy your travels in the days ahead: Paul to Holland and Jill also to Holland, but in opposite directions. Figure that one out!
