Yesterday was the perfect "spring" day. Everyone wanted to be outside -- working in the garden, fixing up a shed, washing the car, or just walking about. It was the first day this year that I could sit on my porch and eat lunch without a sweatshirt. I spent the morning making repairs on the Village Craftsmen porch wearing just a T-shirt. And Amy and I went for a barefoot stroll on the beach in the afternoon. Lachlan came along (sans shirt and shoes), and even splashed in the surf a bit. But I hear there might be some more "winter weather" coming our way this weekend. In the meanwhile we'll just enjoy what we have now.
