Welcome Spring

April 23rd, 2008

Today was one of the glorious days on the Chesapeake Bay when you know that winter has quit for good, and that Spring is really here; our Heron  returned for the first time since October!   It was the cause of much excitement from all involved:   Kenny ran shouting out the back door, “Look!   The HERON is HERE!”   Dudley ran so fast down the dock that I was sure we were going to have to fish him out with a net.   And I actually got choked up as I looked out at him, standing so regally on the piling (at least until Dudley came at him like a mad cheetah), then flew casually away across the cove.   Spring at last…

It’s amazing how different a day is when you have all the windows open, and instead of being confined to scramble for things to do all day, you have all the outdoors at your disposal.   Today Kenny and I went for a long walk, even stopping at the common area in our neighborhood to pick dandelions and blow the fuzzies into the wind, played t-ball, waded in the still-very-cold creek (Dudley even ventured out for a mini-swim), watered flowers with the garden hose and ate lunch on the porch.   At dinner time, the grill was fired up, and Casey, Kenny, Dudley and I sat on the deck in the still-bright sunlight and had a leisurely dinner, which concluded in a one-man-show by Kenny, who danced himself silly.   Cabin Fever be gone!
