Spring is coming, I can feel it in the air. . .

February 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I’m so sorry for all of you who don’t live where I do. If I had a TARDIS or a transporter or if we could actually Apparate, I’d make sure you all got to enjoy this day. Seriously, guys, it’s gorgeous out there. And it may be gorgeous where you are, too, but you don’t have Mount Olympus still covered in snow against a sky so blue it almost hurts providing the backdrop for the lovely weather.

Today I left my coat hanging on the coat rack when I left for lunch (I did need it this morning. Still frost on the windows of my car and all). Then I pulled out my iPod and found “Spring is Coming” by the Real Group and turned up the volume. Then I rolled down the windows on my car while I drove to the Mexican place I decided on for lunch (I love me some shredded beef tacos). Then I kept those windows down and that Real Group playing and drove to a park, where I sat in my car with the windows still down and ate my lunch.

Then I went for a walk in the park. Nice and slowly, taking deep breaths as I meandered along the asphalt path. Then I walked off the path for a while, and savored the feeling of walking on ground that gives under your feet. Then I sat down on a swing and just looked around. Then I swung, which I haven’t done for ages, and enjoyed the feeling of the crisp wind on my face and in my hair. Then I walked back to my car and drove (with the windows down and the Real Group still playing) back to work. And even that wasn’t so bad, because I have fresh-cut tulips on my desk and the weatherman says the 40-and-50-degree weather is going to be here for a while.
