The severe weather passed us by last night. Today has been beautiful! M and I spent most of our morning outside on the deck and strolling around neighborhood garage sales. It’s so wonderful to see the sun after too many days of clouds and big, red, blobby radar.

I also won a blog contest! Remember when I wrote about The Creative Family? Amanda had a contest on her blog for the new book I Love Dirt! Since M and I have been spending more time outside, I know we are going to have fun with this. Here’s a pic from one of our nature walks last week. She’s showing her dog her flowers and “baby cones.”
