Spring… finally!

The weather in New England is actually doing what it should be doing!

Today is the last day of winter. Forecast:

Today…Rain…snow with a chance of sleet this morning…then rain this afternoon

Tonight…Rain in the evening…then rain with a chance of thunderstorms after midnight

Tomorrow is the first day of spring. Forecast:

Thursday…Mostly cloudy. Showers likely in the morning…then a chance of showers in the afternoon

It seems like its just the way it should be. Fairytale-ish, almost!

Can you find the cat in this photo?

I just remembered a funny story about when we were moving.

The movers had shown up to load all our earthly belongings onto their truck. We were concerned about Shadow getting out but also knew that there was no way to prevent it. Our movers were fantastic and did the best they could but did, at one point, let us know that they thought he had run out the garage door but they also thought that he’d run right back in the front door.

Well, they finished packing and, with the exception of those few last minute things that would be tossed in a box and put in our car, the house was completely empty. And no Shadow. We were so upset. We were outside calling him, shaking a box of dry food on the deck (knowing how much he loves food) and… nothing.

I went to do a couple last minute errands and Brian called. Found him!

Can you?

House photos…. finally…

When I finally figured out how to post photos here, I had promised to post some of the new house (its been 6 months – can you believe it???

Here’s the front of the house:


The backyard from the deck:


Another yard angle from the ground:

And one more…


So that is what I now call home. We’re very, very happy with the new digs. I’ll try to post some inside photos soon.
