Yes, it’s foggy – an dit’s that damp kind of cold that seems to get in under all the layers of clothing you thoughtfully put on in order to keep all that cold out. But still – are those nascent buds I see on that tree branches? Perhaps just a bit early still. And yet, I know that within the next couple of weeks I will see green tinges on the willows and I will know that spring has arrived.
Teh sun is now rising before 8 a.m. and in only tow more days it will set after 5 p.m. Yes, I am so desperate for warmth and light that I keep track of this – and I get excited by it! In my quiet and peaceful life, it doesn’t take much to get me excited.
So today is a hiatus – no work on the books – not a stitch of it. I could (if I felt very ambitious) clean out the refrigerator. Today would actually be the ideal day to do this because the fridge is almost empty: I do my shopping on Thursdays. I could also do the dusting. Goddess knows, my place can ALWAYS use some dusting.
On the other hand I could play computer games and do random Google searches.
If you will notice, I am already using the delaying tactic of writing in my blog. Hmmm, I wonder if there are any phone calls I should be making?
