Three days into spring break and the weather has been just fantastic. I have succeeded in playing a bit more than I have worked this weekend. I feel my batteries recharging and am reaping the benefit of more than five to six hours of sleep each night. In fact, I have surprised myself in that I have not been automatically waking up at four or five each morning.
I had something good happen on Friday... My housekeeper, Janet, returned after about a three month hiatus. While I don’t mind housekeeping Janet had spoiled me rotten. Not to mention, I think she tends to do a better job of cleaning than I do. I think that might be because I attack it with the mind set that I want to finish it as fast as I can so I can move on to the next task. And, of course, while I don’t mind it I really don’t like it much. Anyhow, I was thrilled to have her back and very happy to have the extra help. In particular, considering its grass cutting season and the outside chores and projects are starting to pile up.
It’s been nice to spend some down time with the kids. Abby’s road-race on Friday night and shooting clays with Matt and his buddies. Matt and I did take some time today to get a little work completed down at the barn. I jumped on the big tractor and dragged the riding rink to knock down the weeds and Matt jumped on the mower and cut the grass.
Tomorrow we hit the river for a couple of days fishing. I can’t wait to get out there and snag a few trout. Who knows, maybe we’ll have a pan full of fish about this time tomorrow. Maybe I’ll take a few pictures to share with you…
