We had a couple of nice (sunny and 50F) days here in Fife this weekend. It was super to spend some time outside and not be thinking the whole time about how much I want to go inside!
We do not live in an area that is really known for snow, but this winter, there have been only a few days where we did not have snow on the ground. The daytime temps have been such that the ground thaws. The result has been MUD. Mud is everywhere. The yard may never recover... Driving to our parking area has created terrible ruts and the few times we have driven around to the back of the house (usually when we are returning from the grocery store) has made a muddy mess of the side yard. I won't even begin to describe the yard by the back porch. Just imagine, 2 dogs, no grass, no gutters on the house and tons of precipitation. Gross!
