Grilling Out

Today was our first Grilling Out of the season!  Woo-hoo!
Gotta love these first few warm days...  When you go for a walk with a short sleeve shirt and a lightweight hoodie - and realize you're too hot!  When the sun is so bright, you don't leave the house without sunglasses.  When there are new buds on all the trees.  Green shoots coming out of the ground.  The mallards and geese are nesting and pairing off.  The muskrats are finding and building new homes.  Our eagles have returned to our neighborhood.  Kids are out on bicycles, rollerblades, scooters, and skateboards.  The birds are back at the feeders.  The windows are open.

And I can run outside barefoot to put the dog out!  (And not get cold!)

I love these days...  There's hope for summer afterall!

Things I am thankful for today:

1.  Early morning sunshine.
2.  The book, "Velvet Elvis" by Rob Bell.
3.  Walks.
4.  Using up the last of last year's frozen and canned goodies.
5.  Spring colors.
6.  Hubby's grilling skills.
7.  Baked potatoes.
8.  Avoiding laundry... again...
9.  The cookbook:  "The Splendid Table's How to Eat Dinner."
10.  Falling asleep on the couch.
