SUNSHINE!

Okay, I know this is a rather uninteresting photo BUT it illustrates the SUN coming in the window of our study!Today is blue sky, sun, and 50˚, maybe even warmer! Owen and I went for a walk this morning and the furnace is off and the windows (not all) are open! I think spring is FINALLY here!

Last Friday we saw this cardinal out the study window. I'd like to get a picture of him without the window and screen but I doubt that will happen. They always fly away by the time I get outside!

This weekend we cleaned out Owen's sandbox and put in new sand. We need a lot more sand though and will probably need to have it delivered. It's just a square box made with boards (that are rotting and falling apart!) but it will be good enough for this spring/summer. Owen didn't seem to care that it wasn't all filled up either! He was in there with his whole body playing! The neighbors have a little sandbox and he loves to go over and play in it but we can't go when the daycare kids are out so he will appreciate having his own.

Hope it's sunny and beautiful where you are too!

Sandboxes are fun. Did you find any treasures buried in it??

Hope spring has sprung for you! :) Not sure what season we're in. It was 80s on Sat, 60s yesterday and 50s today, but supposed to rebound to 80s by Friday. We've had a similar roller coaster of temps for several weeks now. Very weird.

Isn't it invigorating to finally get some Spring? I bet it is for you guys. I'm excited because we are getting a cool front all week, it was in the 50's last night and tonight in the 40's. LOVE IT! I posted today that it was picture-perfect around here.

So happy that you guys are getting some spring like weather. We are also. This week it is suppose to finally hit 70! yahoo.

The photo of the cardinal is just beautiful. I can never get the camera fast enough to get a shot of ours.

Have fun in the sandbox!

Yeah for Spring! What a beautiful cardinal :) We're at 65 today for the first time in a loooong while, but I won't get used to it - tomorrow is supposed to be 37! Enjoy your outdoors time :)

It's so exciting to finally have some nice temps isn't it? We're going to be in the twenties by the end of the week. Today was gorgeous here.

Love your orchid!
