In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lion

Personal

I don’t know how far reaching it was, but last Sunday’s weather here in Narberth was spectacular! I heard that it reached into Philly, Drexel Hill, Havertown, Moorestown, and parts of New Jersey.

I had taken Emma out for a walk and couldn’t help but notice that the sky was this crazy peach and smokey blue. I came home and switched out Emma for my camera to photograph it. The sky really did look smokey.




The clouds were insane depending on which direction you looked. This was the view from by back porch.


Not five minutes after returning, we heard this quick spattering on the roof. Emma and I ran to the window to see hail coming down and pinging off every surface. It was so fast and heavy. I opened my back door to get some pictures and Emma got to clean up all the renegade hail stones that came flying in.


It let up no more than ten minutes later. Of course I had to run out and take pictures of the results.






My front yard:

The back driveway… The water was beginning to make rivers and wash up the hail stones. I swear it looked like cherry blossom petals everywhere.


The sky changed dramatically to a fantastic blue with big puffy clouds.


Here is the before and after of the same tree (different angles).


Pennsylvania may have bitterly cold winters and sweltering summers, but California has nothing on this!

Meet the new COO of LDP, Asher
He is small and sweet and social and so, so happy and I’m truly enamored in a way that I’ve never been before and didn’t quite expect.  I had Asher 6 months ago today after 9 months of heavy prepartum depression and a tiring labor.  Two weeks early, 17 hours of contractions, and an emergency c-section later (goodbye, birth plan!), I had a wiggly, tiny, bird-like baby weighing in at 6lbs 2oz. For a while we called him Mr. Magoo because he was so wrinkly and weak. And he rocked a sweet mullet! Eventually he filled out with plump cheeks, a melon for a noggin, and a dusting of hair.  Possibly because I kept expectations qui ...

I love April. Sure, there may be a few days of surprises (I don’t think I’ll ever forget Carolyn and Jeremy’s torrential downpour wedding) but we’re finally over this lion/lamb business and will most assuredly see real spring soon.Do you hear that? Those are birds chirping as I’m typing this. The sun is up in the mornings again. I no longer need to wear 10 layers to go outside. There are buds on everything. The crocuses came up a few weeks ago and I’m seeing daffodils everywhere.For someone who despises the cold, this is my happy time. The year is turning around and the earth is opening up. I can run outside, I can put away my sweater ...
