Yesterday was amazing. 80 degrees in the sunshine, in March! It was glorious, beautiful, uplifting, inspiring. It's incredible how just a little warmth and sun can change everything. It was like having two full weekend days in one. We got SO much done, and it was great because we did it all together, at a relaxed pace.
We walked around the garden, harvested a few parsnips, and plotted this years layout. We drank coffee in the front yard with my brother and girlfriend for a few hours. We wore sandals, shortpants and I, a tank top. We planted tomato seeds - an entire tray. We cleaned out the shed, and brought stuff to the dump. We got wings and burritos at our local eatery. We watched an NCAA basketball game (my bracket is doing well, I might add). We cleaned up the yard a bit. We did two loads of laundry and hung them on the LINE to DRY. Heaven. We took a walk / run. We went grocery shopping. I read a magazine. We made potato salad and chicken salad. We bought an old farmhouse sink for our house on Craigslist. Taco discovered the outdoors. AND we watched a movie and went to bed. What a day!
My brother said that he just told his girlfriend, if things are ever bad between us, we have to promise to wait until Spring to make any big decisions. Because just one sunny day can change everything.
