we went from cocooning under piles of quilts to ward off the cold
to dragging the kids mattresses down to the delicious cool of the basement to avoid the heat wave.
from spying a single tightly closed bud in the garden
to thousand of blooms; petals carpeting the ground.
from every evening (and day!) filled with school events
to sitting on the porch watching the lightning strike Mt. Olympus.
And though my to-do list this week is daunting, with the sun on my shoulders and peonies by the sink everything seems easier.
