Well, after the coldest spring in forever the sun has suddenly heated up with a vengeance and we’re enjoying a few days of unseasonably warm weather. Daffodils have bloomed, as has the forsythia (quite suddenly.) It’s very nice to see pops of color all about the yard.
We had an exciting weekend-Tabby had her dance recital pictures taken and enjoyed dressing up in the full ensemble very much.
Clark got a new bike, a good one. He got a new bike last summer but we didn’t want to spend the money on a really good one until we knew how much he’d want to ride. It turns out quite a bit and since the other bike had a broken brake he got upgraded. We went for a couple rides and I’m looking forward to many more this spring and summer.
And from last week, one of my favorite pictures so far this spring:
Most exciting for me was that I had my first “professional” photography event. I’ve done a few sessions with pets/families, but a friend asked if I could come take pictures at her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I was fairly anxious about it since indoors is out of my comfort zone. Paul splurged for me and bought me an external flash for the camera. And wow, did it work. I practiced with it Saturday night and then when I used it on Sunday inside the restaurant it worked great. I thought the pictures came out great and my customer (and the anniversary couple) was really pleased. Hooray!
And finally, we’ve been waiting and watching and yesterday our bullfrog emerged from the pond. This is significantly later than his previous appearances, which I suppose is because of how cold it was. He peeked his head up last night and now this morning he is sitting outside the pond in a little patch of greenery. Welcome back, Big Green Froggie!
