So, Easter and daylight savings have come and gone, and supposedly spring is upon us. I say “supposedly”, because the ground is still littered with chunks of grey ice and slush, the temperature is still teetering around zero, and it’s supposed to snow later in the week. Still, the days are getting longer and most of the snow cover has melted, so I suppose the season is on its way, albeit a bit late.
Easter weekend was a bit rocky. I’m still fighting a lingering cold or flu that reared its ugly head over a week ago and won’t go away. I’d go to the doctor, but several friends have had similar symptoms for the same amount of time, have been to the doctor, and been told it’s viral. In a nutshell, this means that the only cure is to take it easy and rest up. Still, it put a bit of a damper on my weekend. I didn’t do much of anything other than sleep on the sofa and watch old episodes of Ugly Betty. On Saturday I managed to put on some clothes and leave the house, though Sunday I only managed to get out of bed and lie down on the sofa. Monday night I actually managed to dress up and make a venison roast in celebration of the season 3 premier of Game of Thrones. Yes, I am that much of a nerd, but so are my friends. However, today I worked on the sofa in my PJs, with a sore throat and mild nausea. I think it’s my body’s way of saying “screw you weather, get warmer already.”
I’ll be optimistic though. I’ll plant my seeds this week so that I have plants by May and fruits and veggies by July. I’ll take out my summer dresses and invite the nice weather in.
