Sixteen Trees

It rained yesterday.  All day.  I have sixteen trees in my small back yard, which rather dashes my hopes for a vegetable garden.  I started to get excited though, at the idea of what the rain will sound like this summer when the trees are fully clothed.  Which reminds me, I really need to get Max and Sam some rain boots and rain coats.

Yesterday we watched The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and made chocolate chip cookies.  That's what you do on a rainy day.  I tried the chocolate chip cookie recipe from the latest issue of Bon  Appétit  .  The flavor was incredible, but I need to do something differently; they baked too large and flat.

These are two fairy holes that Max and I found.  He gets very concerned that the dogs will bother them.    I think I may make a small Easter wreath or some other decoration for their entrances.  The arrival of Spring is a big deal for fairies, after all.

It's forecast to be 66 degrees and sunny today.  No lions here.
