Signs of spring

1. My roommate and I sunbathed on our south-facing-not-visible-from-the-street porch on Saturday. Ok, really, she sunbathed, and I sat there with my pj pants pulled up over my knees and chatted with her.

2. I got in my car on Saturday afternoon, and it was HOT inside.

3. I am wearing just a short-sleeved t-shirt on campus today - no sweatshirt, no coat, no scarf, no gloves, yes pants.

4. Last night at 11pm it was warmer outside than in my house - NOT on purpose. Wrong, people, just wrong.

5. I am REALLY tempted to ditch this whole thesis, graduate school, making-an-academic-contribution-to-the-world thing and go find some people playing volleyball outside and join them. For the rest of my ever-lovin' life.

Edited to add: And then, true to form, it hailed today. Twice. And thunder and lightning. Happy Spring to you, too.

I wish I had signs of spring to look forward to, but here in the southland, its spring from October to April, and then its just plain hot and humid (and Grammy says "UGLY" - she's reading over my shoulder).. Maybe someday we'll move back to the land of 4 seasons.

78 degrees in Houston today. Oh, if it would only stay like this.

Margaret,

How could you? Sunbathing.....I pray thee was armed with plenty o'sunscreen!

Actually, I took a little stroll yesterday to enjoy the weather, only to receive several chuckles that I was wearing my wide-brimmed Skin Cancer Awareness hat, UV protective sunglasses, and lathered in some Blue Lizard Australian Sunscream. Ah, at least I know that my skin won't look like a lizards in a few years! HA!

I Love ya my dear.

Oh, I would KILL to be sunbathing right now. And/or driving away from my thesis. But it's 30 degrees and I don't know how to drive.

I bet your shins have a really nice healthy glow to them.
