It’s hard not to feel a bit insulted by the robin who built a nest in our carport, hung out for a couple of days, and then seems to have decided we’re not actually cool and has left. I mean, it was a bad spot; right above where we park and Peter keeps his bike, beside the gate to our backyard, and with our neighbours doing construction on the other side of the fence.
Last Sunday was Mother’s Day and we continued our tradition of Sharkey’s fish and chips. We visited a new church and the girls made me lovely crafts in Sunday School (which they really enjoyed!) Peter got me flowers and baked goods and all in all I felt well loved.
We’re having a very cold, rainy spring. There have been some sunny days here and there but very inconsistent and a lot of rain. I planted some seeds and have some starters in pots and am bringing them inside at night because it’s still pretty cold. I cut some of our flowers to bring inside because they we’re getting pummelled by the rain.
Baking, cups of tea, and books are some of my best personal defences against the doldrums of bad weather.
Does it feel like spring where you are? What do you like to do when the weather starts to get you down?
