Where's the Sun?

I know that the sun is good for the grass and all the little plant that are popping out all over the place. And I am very thankful that it is not snow. But after 5 days straight of cool,wet weather I am soooo ready for the sun. The gray days are making me want to go back into hibernation mode which is depressing as I just came out of hibernation after a long cold winter. I refuse to turn the heat back on, though the gas fireplace has been used daily to take the chill off.
Also my oldest has been away all week at a program through school called Natures Classroom. Lots of neat outdoor activities promoting team building, social skills and an appreciation of nature. The weather has been yucky for the poor kids and I am hoping that she is having a great time despite the rain. I'll find out tomorrow. We've missed her and look forward to hearing about her adventures.
I have been venturing outside to take care of the chickens and the rabbits and have attempted a few little projects. Unfortunately everytime I venture out it is sure to begin pouring within minutes. Our little chicken coop has a leaky roof and we've placed a tarp over it until we can fix it. We've got some shingles leftover from the house and will use those.
I am desperate to just be outside and not get wet. Not to mention that I have 500 outdoor projects that I want to get done!

Honestly, this has been the weirdest spring. It seems like I have been saying that every year, but this one takes the cake with all of the horrible storms and late frosts. We had snow here in northern Arizona this week! I usually complain about the heat and now I am complaining about the cold.
