A short humorous look at how one spends a spring day.

Is that sun?

No it can’t be.

Yes, yes it is. It’s sun.

It’s almost…warm outside.

Are those birds? I forgot what those sound like.

I can finally put the shovel away.

Ventures out into the yard like a bear waking up from hibernation.

It’s so bright. My eyes.

Oh god the cleaning.

And cleaning.

Why is there mud everywhere?

Is that rain?

Yep. It’s rain.

As soon as I get back inside, aaaaand now it’s done raining.

Let the dogs out.

Tries to finish cleaning.

Tries to get started on yard.

What are you barking at?

How did you get covered in so much mud.

Where’s the hose?

How is the hose still frozen.

Is it raining again?

Goes back to cleaning.

How is it hot and cold at the same time.

It it snowing?

Yes. Yes it is.

Now where’d the shovel go?
