    Summertime's A Comin'

    I have spent the last 6 months locked in a house and freezing my butt off outside. Driving was a pain, and if you aren't careful, you end up Carling... the heater rarely works on my car, and walking is a totally frigid experience.

    Sunday was a super day. It was beautiful out. In fact, the whole weekend was rather nice. Got up pretty early on Sunday, and did a whole ton of yardwork. This is a necessary task, and though there are numerous hours of pretty tough work, it is worth it in the end. Raking the dead grass and leaves is hard on the back, but I tell you, our lawn is already starting to look good. Now the green spray paint is all I need! A little later, after a brief respite of Diablo, I decided it was time to wash the car. It has been dirty, dusty and muddy for some time, as spring always wreaks havoc with the roads. Sand and mud everywhere... That was pretty fun actually, and I almost have a nice shiny car now :D

    Later on, we took the Aunt's dogs for a walk. They are pretty full of energy. My wife was watching them for the weekend, so it was nice to go out and get some more air and exercise. Another neat thing we have started doing is going for a drive. Yeah, a Sunday Drive :P But when the sun is shining, it is great for driving! Nipped out to Sylvan Lake and I was quite surprised that it is still ice and snow covered, except for maybe 20 or so yards from the shore. Guess it is still early in Spring!

    After we got back, it was time for some steaks. So we sat on our deck after BBQing up some ALBERTA BEEF, and sipped some Pilsner and ate. What a great day. Fresh air and sunshine does wonders when you suffer from SAD...
