This was supposed to be Monday's post, but because I was seeing red over gas station radio and felt that something must be done, I'm posting it today instead.
I crossed a threshold with my project, and though it was not perfect, I passed it along to be reviewed by other members of my department end-of-day Friday and although there is much work still to be done, I feel as if a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders and that the remaining work will be much more manageable hereafter.
Although the winter weather has finally, finally broken and we are now actually having a spring, I was cooped up so much of last week, I didn't get to enjoy it. But Saturday morning, I got in the car and drove to the beach to do the walks I used to do. And Sunday morning before church, I got up and did the same thing. I have not done this walk for six months. I am so happy to be able to start again. The muscles in my legs are screaming at me, but I know that I have done good.
And lost a pound.
Not that I'm counting.
On Saturday, I went straight from the beach to the office of a guy who has worked on my laptop and bought a new computer from him. We've need to replace our family desktop for a while now. It's been almost 10 years that we have used it and our Quicken no longer works on it. Yes, I bought a generic no-name computer from a guy who builds them. I didn't hem and haw and deliberate and research for months. I just did it. I've heard so many rotten things about Dell's service and Windows Vista that I really wanted the security of having a repairman close-by. Of course, I'm really hoping I won't need him much.
We also bought planters and flowers for our new patio. Tigger jumped right into the whole planting thing. I did one planter, he did the other, and then he took a whole flat of dianthus and planted them, well spaced, around the patio, all by himself. I think he's found a hobby.
The daffodils are blooming, many of the tulips are opening up, I see peonies pushing up out of the ground. It's going to rain for the next two days. Maybe we'll see more flowers after this.
