Spring is here though. Today it was sunny and gorgeous outside (though it's clouded up again now). I got out and did some gardening this afternoon. I picked up a lot of leaves. (There's an oak tree near me that irritatingly hangs on to a lot of its dead leaves until it buds in the spring, so throughout the winter, every wind dumps a few more leaves in my yard. I tend to pick up the worst in late fall and then ignore it until spring comes.) I trimmed my grass for the first time this year. And I pulled some weeds. I think my thigh and butt muscles will be sore tonight - I did a lot of bending down and squatting today. A couple more sunny days and I'll have my yard whipped into shape for the spring and my seeds planted. I'm planning on a lettuce mix, radishes, and nasturtiums for salads, some broccoli cuz it's become my favorite veggie, and some sunflowers just because they're cheerful.
