Whistle While You Work

The temperature rose above 60 degrees farenheit today and I decided that the Christmas greenery (er, brownery) needed to come down and the porch needed to be cleaned. Lizzie made sure that I was properly entertained and even scrubbed down a rocking chair because she wanted to help her "mama".

We are thrilled to have sun, warm weather and the start of blooms after a long Winter. New discovery: tiny bunches of Snow Drops blooming beside the porch. They're beautiful! (And no, you can't see them in the videos. Other side of porch.)

March 1st, 2010: A Beautiful Day in Our Neighborhood

Mr. McFeeley came to town and we all got to spend time with him (and each other) on the morning of March 1st.

While Lizzie seemed immune to Mr. McFeeley's charm, she was thrilled to see her friend Mariah and run in circles in the humongous Witherspoon Room at Westminster College.

Jefe had the chance to lunch with Mr. McF and discovered that he quite liked the last Quentin Tarantino movie. Who would've guessed?

(Later in the day, an attorney and a financial planner stomped out of the room when I asked them for $50K. I was thankful that I had the warm, fuzzy memories of this sweet beginning of a day to buffer this crazy end.)
