15 April 2008


Don't say it too loud, but I think spring might be here. Today was the second day so far this year that it's been warm enough for a dress with no tights (and not even knee socks today!). I've planted my seeds for the garden. There are some brave tulips peeking their heads up above soil. And, today was the official bike inauguration day of 2008.

Oh how I love spring. It's been a long, cold, brutal winter. And I couldn't be more ready to get outside in the warm sun and cool breezes. It was so nice to get on my bike today and hop on the greenway to work (seriously, it's a bike highway- I have actually been in bike traffic jams at rush hour before-how cool is that?). As much as I love my car, I also have a serious affair with my bicycle. Minneapolis is a super bike-friendly city and it's so much nicer to not be closed off the the outside world all the time the way you are inside a car.

More tomorrow before I head off to the big city...I hope spring is popping it's head out wherever you are.


  1. I think it might really be here too! I started getting some of the plants I ordered from catalogs... can't wait to get them in the ground. We have lots of tulips and daffodils popping up. By the end of the week I think I'll be looking at real flowers.

  2. Yay to spring! Although I heard rumors of "winter weather" for tomorrow... WHAT???
