It's my Birthday

Today I am Nine. It's kinda surprising because I almost didn't make it to One.

It did NOT rain as much yesterday as the weather guys said it would. In fact, it got sunny in the afternoon, and the temperature got over 60F. Mom even opened a window in the studio so I could smell the outside air. I liked that a lot.  Actually, I was escaping this:

So what was going on? Mom and her dad replaced the faucet in the bathroom. Why the big mess? Apparently the cold water shutoff did not shut off all the way, so it leaked. There was a bucket brigade until Mom figured out how to stop the dripping.

Here is the new faucet. Mom is really happy with it.

Although a lot of the snow has melted, there is still some left. We'll see what happens when the sun comes out later...
 I am sorry, Messrs White & Kitty, and Maggy, but none of you has won the When When Contest. There is still snow on the ground. It is melting fast. Here are some more photos of our front yard.


The great big garden rock is almost snow free.

Turning to the right a bit you can see the ground at the base of our lamppost.  It's going fast. When will it be gone? I do not know, you will have to check back every day to see.

Happy Easter!
