#1. I have been really sick for about 8 months. A combo of having a brain tumor and then a hurt sciatic nerve due to a unfortunate side effect from 1 of the many upon many tests I have had to get for the tumor. So I am confined to home for the most part. When spring came, I can actually now sit out on my back porch in a zero gravity chair and see the gorgeous flowers on the trees and smell the rain that is often in the air. I get to feel a little more human and alive this way:)

My favorite spring event is watching the cows kick up their heels when they are let out to pasture for the first time in the spring...amazing how spunky they are and can move those large bodies so effortlessly when they are happy. The calves aren't quite sure what all the rucous is about, but they run and hop and jump all over too...pure happiness!
