Here we are Easter Morning sitting in the sunshine. Pk was watching a soccer game and I was just leaning on him and photosynthisizing. The air was a bit cool but the sunshine was just lovely.

And the yellow ones are so intensely yellow that they glow in the sunlight. They were well worth the wait.
We have some hyacinths and the daffodils have finally decided to throw off their green coats and show off their frilly yellow dresses. I think they are my very favorites of all the spring bulbs (at least until the grape hyacinths come up-they're so darn cute)

This was our house on Tuesday when we got home from work. Those are deadly looking, aren't they? Our gutter leaks there but the ground has been so wet/snowcovered/muddy under the window that Pk was afraid to put a ladder up to put on a new piece of gutter. As soon as the weather clears, he'll do that.
Needless to say, the peas did not get planted. We're hoping to get to them this weekend (no rain in the forecast). There are, however, snow showers in the forecast for later next week. I will try to remember this in August when we're complaining of the heat.
Pk has been having a hard time at work. One of the managers wants him gone and gone he will be. Probably sooner rather than later. And since PA is an "at will " state, they can fire him without giving a reason. It's very stressful since the job market is so tight. And we only have a year and a half on our mortgage. It would be a good time for us to win the lottery.
He actually feels a bit relieved. The writing is clearly on the wall and he doesn't have to guess anymore. I am feeling stressed and more than a bit anxious. He'll be covered under my insurance but his salary is significantly more than mine. There will be a lot of belt tightening in our household.

We made it through what will be (hopefully) our last snow storm of the season. There are flakes in the forecast for Wednesday night but they are not supposed to amount to much. I didn't have to take a day off on Monday so I can start accumulating vacation time for the days when the sun is out and I can get outdoors.
