The sun has returned. Spring has burst into bloom. Unable to find the vacuum, we have resorted to cleaning the floor with lint rollers in a “college fabulous” attempt at spring cleaning. We had some lovely CouchSurfers from northern Switzerland stay with us, had a birthday party for Ashton and baked cake and calzones, and went for a hike in the glorious sunshine. I actually wrote a page of my research paper today! Progress is underway. Here, a photographic tribute to spring, to our living space, to our CouchSurfers and to beautiful Switalia!
