two grandchildren turn Three;
we have full responsibility for a Five and an Almost-Three for five days while their parents enjoy some Travel Time;
we begin ballroom-dance classes at the local community centre (I know! Should be fun, but we're a bit nervous -- old dogs, new tricks, and all that);
and we have a week in Portland. . .
walking 'round this lake before, in the spring. in memory of walking it with Mom.
So it's not quite Spring yet, but the days are already noticeably longer here, the equinox only a few weeks away, and signs of growth abound. We may yet see another snowfall here, and I know I've still got time to enjoy wearing my new sweater, but soon we'll be out there hiking and walking and riding our bikes and gardening. . . . or just sitting on the grass, or at a table, or on a bench, in the sun . . . I'm ready!
Today, though. . . today is grey here (although we have four or five days of sunshine forecast, just 'round the corner, can't wait!). I'm going to get myself to the gym, see if that rustles up some endorphins, and then I've planned a yarn store outing and a writing session in a favourite bakery/teashop. We have a sleepover with a Grand tonight, a first ballroom-dance class tomorrow, and that's it for the weekend plans so far. You?
