Il fait beau! (it was GORGEOUS today!)

Post  LaFee on 2/11/2011, 1:36 pm

We had a crystal-clear, sunny day of 16C (63F) today for the first time since last fall.

I got all carried away and put the laundry out on the line (not dry, but enough to greatly reduce the load on the dryer!), pulled a few weeds, and GET THIS -- turned off the boiler, opened the windows, and let the fresh air in for a couple of hours. Pulled the greenhouse off of my box and covered it with fleece, as we're supposed to have rain tomorrow (of course we are...Rolling Eyes ) and I want to let it soak into my MM.

The bummer is that I'm battling a sinus issue and just didn't have the energy to do much, but boy it was nice to have some reasonably warm weather and a lot of sunshine today!

I would answer in French but my spelling is terrible. My kids have been gone too long so we haven't used French here in forever.

Sorry you aren't feeling well, but getting to hang laundry outside and get out there to do things sounds fabulous.

AND just to prove that la Dame Nature (although I like her other name better this year!) has a sense of humor, today is socked in with clouds, damp, and chilly, and the forecast for the week is just as dismal.

At least I got to enjoy a little of it...!

Over here in Holland it's even worse: we've had snow this morning! Luckily now it's turned into rain, but it's hard to believe spring is coming at this moment... Very Happy
