Back in business



Today the sun came out full force, and it hit 61 degrees. It's winter in Utah, and I drove with the windows down--a special treat. It was beautiful!* I'm already dreaming of BBQs and biking (as soon as I find a nice strong pair of chain cutters**).

This past week, Ryan and I were in the basement, and I heard the first sounds of spring--a bird chirping. Or a mouse squeaking. We couldn't be sure, but I'm pulling for the bird.

Anyway, since the weather has decided to awaken from it's winter slumber, I decided I oughta come out of hibernation myself. I'm tired of seeing the link to my blog on yours with an "updated 2 months ago" underneath it. So here we go.

*I'm trying not to get too excited by this bout of nice weather. Spring is such a tease. Every February, he (or she, if you prefer) walks into our lives and invigorates us, flirtatiously treating us to sunshine and hopes of summer. And then one morning, you wake up and he's gone quick as he came, leaving only the ice on your windshield to scrape and a promise that he'll return. Sigh.

**My bike is chained up safe and sound at an apartment I haven't lived in since last summer. Apparently I lost the key to the lock and am now in the market for either chain cutters or an incredibly strong pair of garden shears. Or a new bike.

I, too, am enjoying this bout of warmer weather, though I'm sure it won't last long. Sydney and I went on two walks today! Hooray. Also, Martin might be selling his bike if you're interested.

It's February and we are experiencing 80 degree temperatures and using the A/C. Oh well for the month long winter. Good to see you at the top of our blog list.

resurrection! You're alive!
yea, we had gorgeous weather today in Ohio too. I took Gwen out for a walk and didn't have to listen to her sucking in air in that "i'm shocked you're putting me through this" sort of way. What beauty! I hope that spring isn't being too much of a tease right now...
