The day started out overcast and not too cool, so I'm out in a t-shirt, vest, and jeans. It starts to rain. I'm a Pacific Northwesterner, what's a little rain. Then it starts to pour. Hail was mixing in with the rain crashing down on me, and I was losing my happy frame of mind when I turned a corner and saw the duck. He was in his element, happy as a duck, dabbling at all the new puddles and enjoying the free shower. It is impossible to be grouchy around ducks.
Excuse me while I go change into something dry.

I realized as the days lengthened and lightened that I had become depressed and lethargic over the long, wet winter. I even stopped blogging. I need to figure out how to handle winter better, how to keep engaged with the things I care about. My project for spring and summer: how to make a better winter. Joy abounds as days lengthen, soil dries, and the sun shines.
I have taken pictures and thought of stories to share, and I will backfill here as much as possible. Anyone still reading, thank you for your perseverance. I intend to get back to sharing the joy and wonders of life at Ravenwood.

The day started sunny and bright, and stayed that way. The sun warmed things enough that it felt, and looked, like Spring. It was a glorious break from our usual wet winter weather.
