Day 92 - St. Patrick's Day

It was definitely a green day. Sure, it's St. Patrick's Day, but I've been noticing something else as well. Spring has arrived. Little green buds are appearing on the oak trees in our backyard. The photinia bushes are starting to grow again. I even saw a daffodil. I like this time of year. It's not too hot and not too cold. I wish this mild weather would last longer in Texas, but I've learned to enjoy it while it's here. I really need to set aside some time to photograph the wildflowers when they come into bloom a few weeks from now. They ought to be spectacular this year after the exceptionally wet Winter we've had.

The dogs certainly enjoy this time of year. I try to keep them away from the nesting ducks, but there are plenty of other new smells and interesting critters to keep them occupied.  I think all the dogs at obedience class this evening knew that Spring was in the air. They just weren't that interested in the training exercises. Even some of the very best dogs were off their game tonight.

Suddenly after months of no activity at all, two people want to lease my rent property and another wants to buy it. I'm not sure what I want to do. I don't really enjoy being a landlord anymore, but it might be better to wait until property values improve a bit before selling the place. Probably anything is better than just letting the house sit vacant for another year though. I'm sure I'll find out what my leasing agent thinks about all this right around when I'm sitting down to enjoy my pancakes tomorrow morning.
