Checking in.

I was feeling bad about not updating my blog, but I've been making the rounds of some of the other blogs I read semi-regularly, and I see that there are many other people who are otherwise occupied, too! Is it something about spring? Are we all too busy planting flowers, buying capris and flip-flops, and driving around with the windows down?

The only one of the above things I've been doing is planting flowers. I hate capris, although I need some, and I have enough flip-flops. (Well, maybe.) And I'm not driving around with the windows down this week because Todd's car died while he was en route to the big air show at Langley on Sunday, so it's in the shop and Todd is taking my car to work this week.

I could haul myself out of bed at 5:15 AM and drive him to work so I can have the car, but frankly, nothing I need to do is urgent enough to warrant getting out of bed at 5:15 AM. And it's been kind of nice to be at home, not having to run errands. I'm getting some spring cleaning done, and it's quite relaxing. Better than sitting in traffic on scruffy Warwick Boulevard.

It was also in the mid-90s here for a few days, and I'm not going out in that mess unless it's truly necessary. So it hasn't been a hardship staying inside where it's cool. Tomorrow we're supposed to get weather that's a little more seasonal--quite a relief, as I am not remotely prepared for the summer hibernation to start yet.
Every summer I feel less able to cope mentally with the heat and humidity. I wish it didn't bother me so much.

Anyway, I'll be back soon. Hope everybody's enjoying springtime.
