Spring Has Sprung
I had hopes of getting out in the yard yesterday (it got into the lower 60’s), but I went to the spa instead. DD received a gift certificate to a new spa in town … she’d made an appointment for this afternoon, and she’s still not feeling well enough to go … so she gave it to me rather than to have it go to waste. While I felt bad that she wouldn’t be able to use it, I didn’t feel too bad to keep from using it myself. My muscles (shoulder and lower back) are a little sore this morning where she had to work extra to loosen up the knots. DH and I did spend a little time out in the backyard, planning out how we’re going to work up this garden … where we’ll plant what, etc. It’s going to be even warmer this afternoon … maybe I’ll work in the yard then.
We also grilled some chicken breasts … it was delightful to sit out on the deck with the sun shining and a gentle breeze blowing. Since it’s going to be even nicer this afternoon, maybe I will spend this afternoon sitting out on the deck with my hexies instead of pruning. After all, we’re going to go to dinner with our neighbors … perhaps I should avoid working up a sweat.
While it certainly looks like spring has finally arrived … outdoors and on the calendar, the meteorologists are telling us something different. The lows are going to be getting back into the low 20’s tomorrow … with snow in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. Ugh! We won’t get back to “normal” temperatures until Thursday.
Part of my “job” at DD’s is to make sure that the Ts do their morning chores, so they’ll be ready to start school when she gets home. This morning I asked T#1 if he’d vacuumed the carpet in the living room … he was incredulous that I couldn’t remember him doing just that no more than 15-20 minutes earlier. On my way to DD’s yesterday, I thought of a couple of things I wanted to order from Amazon … of course, by the time I got to her house, 10 minutes later, I couldn’t remember what I had wanted to do, let alone what I wanted to order. Thankfully I remembered about an hour later. <sigh> I used to have a razor-sharp memory … now it’s more like a butter knife.
Have a fabulous Friday!
