It was therefore a relief when I came home and Edie decided to be sunshine and light. We had a relaxing Mother's Day weekend with lots of this:
If you're wondering - this was taken by Jeff at 3pm. Edie normally doesn't nap, but the weather was gorgeous, we'd spent a lot of time outdoors running around, and I guess we were both on the same page for the first time in weeks. It was nice, like we'd hit the Reset button as a family. My workload has now decreased dramatically just in time for the summer and the weather this Spring has been pretty close to perfect. I'm looking forward to a summer of less work, more mother-daughter time, and family weekends on Orcas and at Birch Bay.
