April 12—Big, Beautiful Day

Wow. So lucky. Big sun. Warmth and continually melting snow. The back yard is muddy and deep in moisture, but the garlic shows. Woke to the sun...and spring-ness. Deep breath. Needed to be outside. Baked biscuits, walked, fixed the coop, made jelly, prepped bath salts—went to the grocery store and Kenyon's (dog food, chicken feed, sheep salts, seeds). Transplanted seedlings. Packed eggs. Worked. Walked more. Worked. Closed the barn. All is well.
