Me: Look at all the people riding their bikes and gardening and walking around outside!
Biogirl: The first sunny Saturday and people are going bananas trying to soak it up before it’s gone again.
Biogirl: What’s Nordic Boy doing today?
Me: Going to the dump.
Biogirl: Everyone has their own way of being excited by spring, I suppose.
Ways in which my weekend rocketh mine hizzy outeth.
1. Sun! Sun! Sun! It was in the mid-sixties, people! And dry! And sun! You should have seen all the Seattle vampires squinting! Love.
2. Biogirl and I went up north and stood around on the grounds of a winery. As you do. There was grass, and ducks, and middle aged white dudes in Tommy Bahama outfits. It felt anthropological.
3. Had a lovely lunch at Cafe Flora.
4. Went with Biogirl to the ice cream joint where we got yelled at that one time. The workers there were super nice today. I felt suspicious of this, like it was a trap or something.
5. Went to Seward Park with Nordic Boy and walked the loop.
6. Walked over to my neighborhood book store and chatted with the booksellers. I love that I have friendly neighborhood booksellers.
7. Walked over to Greenlake, and on the way home, ran into lovely Linda and her cute doggie. I also love walking down the street and seeing friendly faces.
8. Got all the weekly chores done. Groceries, menu planning, laundry, cleaning, bills, done. Look y’all, I am a grown up!
9. Sat on my stoop and talked to my folks on the phone, barefooted. Did I mention there was sun?
10. TURNED THE HEAT OFF.
It’s now Monday and back to rain, but that’s ok. I’m still feeling weekend afterglow. I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled rain rage tomorrow.
