First day of spring

This morning Sylvia woke up at 5:15.

I didn't want to be awake (who does at that hour?) but I had to smile when I heard her crowing, "It's the first day of spring!"

We had a party with a few of Derrick's work friends. Now that they're all gone we have a fridge full of tasty (pseudo) Mexican food and beer. I know what to do with all the food, but not what to do with the beer (since none of us don't drink the stuff). I'd say have another party, but I suspect the problem might multiply...

I got my first mosquito bite of the season.


  1. Hi Kristine,
    This is Tracy Belt's mom. I love reading your posts. According to gardeners beer gets rid of a lot of garden pests. So if you have a garden give them a good dousing.

  2. If you weren't thousands of miles away I'd say you could give it to Ryan (I'm not sure I'll ever develop a taste for beer. Though if it's IPA Ryan will pass). Patty is right, though, you could use it in a garden. Or when cooking a roast or stew or something. Or you could give it away. You probably have a neighbor who'd appreciate it.
