And here's the one I took on March 28th in specific response to her comment. Nope, no melting!
Now, here's the one I just took this morning. Yes! SUBSTANTIAL melting!! Finally!
The warmest we've seen so far this spring is 52 in the shade. That was this past Thursday, one of my days off (double bonus)! The snow literally melted before my eyes. My snow-packed path up to and down from my wooded cabin is a slippery one now. With the snow so soft off to the sides, if you don't step carefully, you'll slip off and sink in. First, you'd go in knee-high, then calf-high. Now it's just ankle high.
I was plagued by dreams of my ex all night long last night. In the dream, we were attending a class reunion of mine (perhaps no surprise as this summer would be my 25th high school reunion if such a thing was being organized). And, I was so excited to show off my (what I wanted to be a) happy marriage and terrific husband. Instead, I had to deal with the knowledge of him sleeping with some of my oldest friends throughout the reunion. Debating whether or not I could/should hide it or confront him then and there, blah, blah, blah. YUCK! I don't often have these dreams, but, when I do, the theme is always the same. No big surprise. And I wake up feeling icky . . . needing to shake it off. Most of the time, I wake thinking, "Thank GAWD I'm not having to deal with that anymore!" Other days (like today), it's harder to shake off. It's been 3 years since I've known the truth of our marriage and his infidelities: you'd think that would long enough for the memories to no longer haunt me. But, they still pop up on occasion. Yuck, yuck, YUCK!
Changing subjects (whew!): I went to Bundle of Joy's last night to visit with her and her family. The twins are already 5 months old! They're goobery little creatures, in the throes of teething, and I could just eat them up! The front of my shirt seemed like it was soaked by the time we put them to bed, and this Bopee couldn't be happier! The last time I was there, I (also) helped put them to bed, and standing there with their mama looking at them, I asked, "Have you taken any pictures of them like this?" She hadn't, and so just as she snapped the photo, Baby Boy G smiled in his sleep!
Finally, it should come as no big surprise, to those who know me as Queen of Procrastination, that I'm posting today. After all, today is the day I've set aside to do my taxes! ;)
