I'm out straight with work, but I still appreciated today's sunshine and the tiny pink buds sprouting all over my neighbor's peach tree.* I ran out to the grocery store mid-day and tonight made pasta primavera in honor of spring. I did take time for a short walk around 4:30 to stretch my legs, the brisk air reminding me that it's spring, not summer. It will be barely above freezing tonight, but the growing profusion of flowers and greenery will not be deterred.
*Update: I added that the tree above is a magnolia. The peach tree (not shown) is in my neighbor's yard out here in the 'burbs. :-)
