I've been working Admin. part time now for only a little over a month and though I enjoy it, I'm so glad I have two days a week off to work on my shop, create and have little adventures-- today was no exception!

My Mom and I often work very different schedules, but every now and then we get an afternoon to catch up.  Today we did so with one of our favorite past times, a drive and a walk w/ our dogs at one of the local forest preserves.  I tend to think of the area we were in today as the back-roads of suburbia; long winding roads with one lane going each way, twisting through farm fields, forests and wetlands.  *sigh* and what a beautiful, sunny day it was!  I do believe spring is well and truly here!
