Only the calendar says it is spring. Easter has passed. Time to get crackin' on freshening up the place. Time to renew.
It's cold, windy, and rainy in these parts. The crud and dirt trapped in the snow has formed into muddy chunks. Our grimy windows look like those of a bail bond office. I can't even wash the dogs. They'll just run outside and come back in with half the back yard on their fur. Same for the car. The plants know better too. Nothing has sprouted.
I'm ready to get out and about.
Hurry up spring.
Ham update: Yes, you can get uncured ham. It still is ham. It's basically a big assed pork roast. There are more lightly cured hams too. That may be the way to go next year. I tire of that sweet and salty taste after a second serving.
