Sometimes, things can be a walk in the park, relatively speaking

It is sunny and 63° F in Alameda today. I went for my noon walk again. The breeze was not blowing as hard as it was yesterday. There are all sorts of things blooming outside, even if the buds on most of the deciduous trees have not opened up yet. Spring is being really aggressive this year and Winter seems well in retreat these past couple of weeks. Of course, that doesn't mean that she cannot rally and shower us with a downpour or two yet, but I am really encouraged, on more fronts than just the weather, this afternoon.

I walked over to the grocery and picked up a bag of Hershey's Nuggets to take back to work with me. I was feeling anxious this morning. Yesterday, while out for my noon walk over by the marina, I was talking to Muse on the phone and she said that she was feeling bad and that her doctor wanted to see her and was telling her that she needed to go to the hospital. I called her again today, while I was out walking, to see how she was and if the hospital had admitted her yesterday and her other half answered the phone. He said that she was home, and sleeping at the moment and couldn't talk right then, which was a relief because it means that the hospital didn't admit her. That's always a very encouraging sign.

Those of us living in parts of the country that have actual winter might prefer not to hear about spring coming in February, you know. At the rate things are going, I may not see my lawn until Memorial Day...

The glass is half full

Perhaps, but in that case you won't have to mow it until then!

Re: The glass is half full... OF SNOW

Shovelling snow and chipping ice is a different matter though. We're expecting sub-zero lows tonight. Tell Musey I said 'Hello'.

Re: The glass is half full... OF SNOW

I'm pretty sure I could fill a few hundred thousand glasses with snow from my 2/3 acre and still not find my lawn. But it's ok, my Burpee order came today so spring must be coming. Eventually.
