It's freezing here today and will be freezing most of the week. I know the calendar says Spring is coming but it's not here yet. I was looking at some images for Spring on the computer so I could put myself in the mood. I found some delightful photos of tulips and lots of clipart trees and flowers. I am so tired of being cold. I wore a hat today! I hate hats. I only wear them when it's so cold that I can't stand it.
One of my favorite images of Spring is kites flying in the air. It brought back a 30+ year old memory. When Pk and I were dating way back in high school, my brother was only 8. We used to take him and his friend kite flying. There was a field fairly close to our house where we could fly kites and they could run around. I remember one time especially fondly. I think it included ice cream. Now, when you drive by, there is a sign that says No Trespassing. Maybe they're afraid someone will get hurt and sue. There are fewer and fewer places around to fly kites. But I still love them. It made me smile to remember my handsome love as a teenager and my grown up brother as an 8 year old. It doesn't seem all that long ago. Now he has an 8 yr old of his own.
Em has another round of tests tomorrow. Hopefully, these will be the definitive ones and she'll get some answers. She says "I wish they'd just take it out and worry about what it is later!" and I can't blame her. It's not been 2 weeks but it has felt like a lifetime since they discovered the alien baby. I am working away on her sweater. It grows a few inches each night. I can only do so much before my hands hurt and I have to reach for a sock. I am pleased with it so far.
And tomorrow I go back to the dentist to have my brand new crown put back in. She put it in about 2 weeks ago. It came out yesterday while I was eating a granola bar with my yogurt for lunch. The irony of this does not escape me. The broken crown wouldn't come out without being cut into pieces and drilled off! This one fit so well, no adjustment needed. Here we go again.
Otherwise, things are moving along. I'm waiting for Spring. My crocuses are covered with 10 inches of snow. Good thing they're hardy.
