Parsonage Life Perk #456: Our own playground.

For April we began to slowly crawl out of the thing called Winter. There were some clear set backs to confuse us as to whether or not it was actually Spring but we press on. But it’s one of the things I love about living in the Midwest, it can still snow in April. The seasons here are distinct and we actually get 4 of them and some years you don’t know which you’re gonna wake up to. Yes they are sometimes harsh but they all have their unique wonders.

It’s Winter as usual until you wake up one cold morning and you hear the sound of birds. Suddenly you know Spring really will come again.

Our tree skirt was reminding me to PACE myself. “Pace on Earth” and in the parsonage. The Season of Christmas is behind us and it’s time to slowly undecorate our house. According to some sources, officially you can leave Christmas decorations up until February 2nd, The Purification of Mary. I take full advantage of that most years not having the energy, time or desire to remove Christmas items from our walls and shelves.

We do take down our tree before January 9th however due to the deadline our city gives us to dispose of trees for us free of charge. So Gerhardt and I took care of our tree together. It’s always sad to me how long it takes to decorate but how quickly everything comes right off.
