rain on my parade

I have never had a backyard. I've always lived in apartments, townhouses, trailers, etc.... so now that we have one....even a rented one, I just can't contain my excitement.

I have a whole list of things I want to do in my new backyard:

1. backyard BBQ's, with friends and food and margaritas and lounging

2. speaking of lounging, laying out in the sun, reading a book will surely take up some of my days this year


4. picnics

5. gardening

6. campouts!

7. running through sprinklers....I'm not sure we have sprinklers, but we have grass, so the chances are good

8. hanging a swing from the tree, maybe even a TIRE SWING!

9. letting my kids go outside and play

10. slip n slide and kiddie pool

I can hardly wait. But alas, it is January, and it is raining, so waiting is exactly what I have to do.

“In that world, you'll be able to rise in the morning with the spirit you had known in your childhood: that spirit of eagerness, adventure and certainty which comes from dealing with a rational universe”
~Ayn Rand
