We celebrated spring this weekend. Richard put a new tire on the wheelbarrow; we brought in the last of the wood from the back of the property, ready to be split; had our first Dairy Queen cone; visited Richard's mum in Wakefield, Quebec, for Mother's Day; had our first (and likely ONLY!) hot dog at a chip stand; and picked fiddleheads for supper from the stream that runs behind the house. Other spring goodies: At least five, fantastic blackfly bites on my neck and ears. Yippee!
