Soggy, Springlike Day

Monday, March 13th, 2006

I got home from Bloomiefest at 2:45 am and pretty much fell straight into bed, leaving the car to be mostly unpacked on Monday. I had a great time, took a bunch o’pictures and probably will have time to process them and post them on Tuesday. Mondays are just a very busy day for me, I start at 10:45am and go till 8:00pm teaching… with a long lunch, thank goodness, in the middle (where I today will run errands to bank and yarn shops, but this is good). No time for PhotoShop.

And let me tell you, I will be sleeping in late tomorrow morning! We have a special election tomorrow and I sure hope no campaign decides to call and wake me before I’m ready to get up!

It is really windy right now, it was hard to keep the car going in a straight line on the highway for part of the trip last night. The good news? It’s nearly 60F/15.5C degrees out. The last time I saw snow was nearly a week ago. It has been raining since Thursday and the grass is just soggy from all the water, but this will make happy plants when spring truly arrives. (No, this isn’t the last of snow, I’m sure of that, but it’s a lovely break.) With this wind, who knows what new weather pattern will blow in, but I’m happy with warmth and a little sun today.

I heard a lot of birds making noise this noon, and the sun somehow is creating shadows though the sky appears mostly full of big fluffy white clouds, some promising more rain.

I noticed last week that the squirrels had come to frantic life and were dodging car tires in this neighborhood at every possible opportunity. They sure did not evolve to survive city traffic well! The grass in the yard has holes in it where the squirrels apparently found nuts stored. Good for them!

Knit News
Today at my high school knitting program, I was video-interviewed by a student (it was her first interview) about my experiences with knitting. It will be shown on the public access channel for the Lansing Schools, I’m not sure when. I did not know this was going to happen, but I’m a ham and always game to be on camera. We’ll see if that amounts to anything.

OK, I’m off to print out handouts for my computer class students and get going on the next part of my busy Monday. Let’s hope I can do a little Bloomiefest report tomorrow when I don’t have any classes to teach.
