March and snow, that's wassup.

Last week it was wonderfully warm, temps in the 70s, people wearing shorts, birds happily flitting, windows open, people sweating, sunshine on my shoulder, outdoor cooking, happiness and contentment, glowing faces, joyful communion, puppies asleep on the lawn, kids on bikes, green grass and budding trees, daffodils and crocus and tulips, lemonade and cookies, kite flying, small insects exploring, chalk on the side walks, clean cars, people vacuuming said clean cars, basketballs being bounced all up and down the street, ponytails, big-bellied robins on the grass, attic fans bringing in the nirvana of the night, blue skies you can dive in to, first sunburned noses of the year, sounds heard from inside the neighbors' houses because the windows are open, spring breaks, people moving and shaking, new sports equipment, people beaming and saying "It's Spring!", and a million other small signs of spring!
Yes, springtime in  St. Louis is a mixed bag of weather alright.  But we are used to it.  We're just sharing a laugh with our fellow St. Louisans when we ask them "Can you believe this?!"
We have spent alot of wonderful time with family, grandmothers, extended family, each other, and many visits with friends.  Our time has been particularly WELL SPENT as of late.

Elizabeth is working on a new play with Metro Youth Shakespeare, "Taming of the Shrew".  She is Bianca!
Our lessons have included 1920s, 1030s, Asia, household finances, electricity, the national government, geometry, and jazz.

Jer is diligently and lovingly constructing us a new's going to be very nice!

I haven't read a book in weeks.  But last night I got the feeling again and I spent about an hour requesting books on my library account.  As soon as they start rolling in I will have more to talk about there.  In the meantime, just call me Mom Taxi and you've got my number.

And, finally, last but not least, my seasonal minor dip into depression is over and I'm REAL GLAD.
