A high of 87 sunny degrees this afternoon brought out our old friends...mosquitoes, bees, lots of chirping birds (happy because it was so warm!) and even a monarch butterfly that fluttered by my kitchen window while washing some dishes. Of course, I've seen ants too, and lots of creepy crawlers making their entrance into spring 2017. The battle of mowing grass made it's debut too this week, so I guess spring is "officially" here! I am ready to wash all my wool sweaters and put them on the top shelf until next fall. Anyone with me?
