I spent Saturday at Pokagon State Park, near Angola Indiana on Saturday. Though the morning started out on the chilly side, by early afternoon it had grown into a beautiful day.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t unable to enjoy the weather, because we were there for the Untied States Pony Club’s Great Lakes Region Quiz Rally. My daughter was competing with her club-mates and the son and I were volunteering. While it was a wonderful day, the moments I was able to walk outside between the two buildings or look out the large windows at the beautiful lake, the woods, and well-kept grounds proved one of the coldest, snowiest winters in a long time was finally (fingers crossed!) over.
There’s something about Spring that reminds me starting over is possible. Just as my tulips and crocus are beginning to push through the dirt in the flower boxes, we can wake up after some down time and spend some time in the sun.
I feel like I’m coming out of hibernation of sorts. Last week I finished up the rough draft on my new project and will be starting the second draft next week. Though revising and rewriting is usually not my favorite part of this job, I’m looking forward to it on this project. The first draft was sketchy for me, and I know I’ll find semblance this time through. I also feel in my gut that with polish this will be turn into a great story.
