This picture was taken Monday when it was warmer outside, this morning I came downstairs to see that the back deck door had blown open during the 27 degree night - right where I'd brought in the basil plants. On the good side the heater had run all night so I doubt the plants were harmed but Good Gracious I'm going to have a whale of a heat bill.
This time of year is such a tease, the daffodils in full bloom, warm daytime temperatures usually then a super cold night. Some Canadian readers pointed out their temperatures in the comment section and I simply can not fathom how a human being survives.
Jonathan and Paloma generally battle to see who can be the most obstinate child of mine with Joanthan pulling ahead this week big time. I thought about Claudia all night as she'd described her bout with Salinda, while typical in the adoption of older children, is terribly unsettling for the parent who only desired to provide a future for children. This offshoot, this real-life experience is daunting and difficult to weather.
