Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter,
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say, it's all right!
After a long cold lonely winter indeed, Finley's been happy to get outside and loves sporting his new yellow boots and matching raincoat, even when it's not raining!
And now that the ground has thawed, I've finally gotten around to doing a project I'd been meaning to do ever since we moved in almost three years ago: moving the clothesline from the shaded flowerbeds, where they were of no use at all, to a sunnier patch of our tiny back yard.
I got started on the project a year ago, but after breaking my dad's post-hole digger, I put the project on the back burner after getting only one of two metal poles (encased in concrete) out of the ground. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the hardest step -- getting those darn things out of the ground! (To make matters worse, there were about a half-dozen tree roots snaking around the base of one of them.)
So, we'll pick up with Finley and me digging (and playing in) holes!
|You can see the gears turning.|
|Of course he just had to jump right in that hole!|
|And the next one!|
|These babies were not light!|
|The first load of laundry on the line.|
|That evening we dyed Easter eggs!|
|Even parted the hair for church for Easter!|
