on sunday night o was running out to get dinner. he popped his head back in the house and told me i should go outside and just walk around the yard. i went out. the sun was just setting and the sky was a purply gray haze. the air was a teensy bit warm. the grass actually looked green. there were the sounds of birds and chirpers...and other things i couldn't identify. as i looked back at our house, the gray shingles against the glow of the interior lights through the windows was so pretty.
and last night when i got home, i looked out and the grass is so green!
i got a twinge of what it's going to be like to experience our first summer at this house. oh and it was really exciting.
