As we awoke this morning, the weather was cold, gray, and windy. Mixed precipitation is predicted for tonight, with rain and sleet over the weekend. I would like to be cheerful about it, but I have to admit that I would love to have warm and sunny weather. Oh well, at least it should be relatively comfortable as we finish tapping trees this weekend. After our outdoor chores are done this weekend, we will take some time to read, plant more seedlings, spend time with our children and grandchildren, and maybe see a movie.
