Is it the jet lag, time change or bad weather? Usually, I’m ready for home after vacation, this time not so much. I had gotten used to slow mornings, lazy days, and beach walks. Sunshine, palm trees, and playing in ocean waves. Goodbye Maui and welcome back to the Pacific Northwest where we are cold and wet and trying hard to break free from winter. (February was the second rainiest on record in Seattle and we haven’t seen this much snowfall in years.)
Today the sun made an appearance through the cloud cover, and I stepped outside for fresh air and to survey the garden. There is much to be done. Still, I found miniature daffodils in bloom, their brilliant yellow heralding spring to come.
I also found two boys more bonded than when we left almost two weeks ago, sharing their backyard kingdom and at peace with one another.
This makes me happy. They know it does.
