Dave and I had a nice, low key Easter. Good friend, Barb came down and we were able to sit outside and enjoy happy hour in the sun before coming in for roasted shrimp and asparagus pasta for dinner. A bit too much happy hour shortened our evening and we all hit the hay before 11 p.m.
Monday we met with one possible cottage builder so we'll see what kind of estimate he comes back with. The weather was still fairly warm and we really enjoyed being at the lake site as we talked over our plans with him. A pair of loons patrolled the waters and a feisty Kingfisher dove and dove again fishing for his lunch. Good to see them again.
Today we drove my little car into the Rochester dealer to get inspected and brought back up to legal driving standards. It will be nice to drive it while we're here.
Cold rain and plummeting temperatures today are very depressing. Dave is up on the ladder cleaning the clogged gutters before the rain sets in for the next few days. Mr. David's A-1 Property Management Co. said he couldn't possibly send anyone out in this weather, so Dave had to do it himself. Will spring ever actually arrive for good?

will they ever leaf out?

Spring is here.....
