It's Spring! Last week we were having summer-like weather, but the past two days it has gotten cool again. We're all in various stages of a cold so the house sounds like an infirmary with everyone coughing, sneezing and blowing our noses. Why does this always seem to happen when the weather is changeable?
Ibrahim is on spring break, but we haven't made any plans to do anything other than hang out at home. My mother has a home health care nurse and a physical therapist coming in a few times a week. She's stable at the moment and we are trying to keep her that way as well as build up her strength. She keeps asking Ibrahim why he isn't at school, and we remind her that it's spring break - only to have her ask again a little while later. Ibrahim is getting tired of answering, but I keep reminding him to be patient with his grandmother.
We've been enjoying watching birds in the neighbourhood. Some White Ibis showed up one day, foraging on the front lawn and around the mailbox. Our backyard friends include a pair of Northern Cardinals, some Blue Jays and some Mourning Doves, and squirrels, of course. Maybe we'll head for the park tomorrow to see what other kinds of wildlife we can find.
