Spring is either really lazy this year or suffering from neurosis. Monday was sunny, warm and beautiful. Tuesday was sunny too, albeit a bit chillier than Monday. Wednesday there wasn’t a piece of blue sky to be had for love nor money. Not only was yesterday cloudy, but the winds dropped the air temperature down into the 40’s.
Yesterday was also the first home track meet of the season. B (my DH) left work early to come and watch. A1 participated in the javelin, shot, discus and 100 meter dash. Unfortunately we weren’t able to view the field events up close because rabid parents, especially those with cameras, were confined to the sidelines. I took one picture of her running but she begged and pleaded not to show anyone.
Whilst the tracksters ran, threw and jumped the audience froze in the shaded bleachers. Our younger daughters and some new friends found ways to entertain themselves and to keep warm though.
The final results would challenge any laundry detergent.
Cindy was just writing about homemade detergent that she makes with Fels Naptha, Borax and washing soda. I may have to mix some up and give it a shot.
Elsewhere, our flowering cherry tree is now in full bloom and it’s gorgeous! Hopefully the afore-mentioned wind won’t blow the petals off.
