a patch of sunshine

tuesday through thursday provided our mountain with a momentary patch of sunshine. gage stayed home from school all week with his runny nose but who was i to deny him the first glimmer of spring? i couldn't. so we treated them like lazy summer days. we played all day in the sixty-something degree weather, we ate ice-cream and pizza, rented movies and slept in late from exhaustion. we loved it.

today is dreary and cold. no snow, just wind and cold wet rain.

i have a sunburn from yesterday's walk to the park. and a nose that feels more like a half frozen waterfall. complete with sneezing and sniffles. today doesn't feel like spring. it just feels cold.
it was a fluke kind of a warm spell. but that's okay with us. we'll take another please.
