Its the end of March, its overcast outside right now and a bit cold. I say a bit. Only because I don't need to put my hood up to walk as I am in fear of losing my ears to frostbite due to the insane bite of the wind. But its really dull out there.
I am not a fan of this time of year. Even when its super sunny so that you can convince yourself that its not cool out as you sit in your hot car with the sun beating in, it is. Or its cold and grey, and the grass is still dead and the trees are still brown and naked and I KNOW that its going to be about another month of this at least.
This is the time of year that we really ought to be in Florida. Somehow we never ever make it down there at this time. Its pretty depressing really that we are 5 years in and haven't got out shit together enough to recognize that this is what's needed at this time.
Even more depressing is the knowledge that unless we win the lotto we aren't going at all this year.
But.... enough of all that. Paul and I are going to Toronto for a long weekend and we do have a family long weekend to Boston to plan and look forward to and I am then going to Boston for training, so its not all doom and gloom. And the weekends away will really be nice. Summer is really and truly just around the corner and we have plans for the house this year.
The big money grabber will be sorting out the bog that is the back yard. Water pools just off from the house and its all wet and then it stinks, so we need to sort that out.
We also need to paint the interior again, thank God we are not wallpaper people, and put in our coffee bar in the kitchen. The coffee bar has been planned in a vague way for about a year now so I am pretty excited that its almost reality.
