Cookie couldn’t be happier about the change in seasons. She chases the bunnies out of the backyard every time I open the back door and pulls me through the neighborhood during our recommenced evening walks. I don’t mind. Forsythia is on fire and the magnolia trees are blushing. I love this time of year.
Since our early spring weather has been mostly wonderful, I’ve been trying to embrace the rainy days that bring more green to my world. I didn’t even grumble when I ran into the grocery store during a downpour a few days ago, dodging puddles in ballet flats. Celery mission: complete.
I got to work on this homemade vegetable soup when I got home and it warmed me right up. I’m hoping the leftovers will carry us through the remaining rainy days and all the muddy paws that come with them.
