The trees around our house have started blooming! I have no idea what these pretty white trees are, but they always bloom first at our house.

This is our pretty crabapple tree (at least, I think that's what it is) right at the foot of our stairs.

Apparently, I equate spring with food...

Oh lordy lordy, it feels like spring!

It's an amazing day (although it's supposed to snow tonight) and we spent the day running errands with the windows rolled down. We bought some seedlings: tomatoes, lettuce, basil and sage and rosemary and strawberries!

Now, I'm marinating a chicken (local, free-range, organic) with lemons (organic), onions (local and organic), rosemary and olive oil that I'm going to serve with roasted new potatoes and a strawberry and spinach salad with balsamic dressing. And I've just finished slicing a fresh pineapple for dessert. Mmmmm.

Life is pretty dang good.

Oh my god. My new glasses are making me illllllll.

How do people cope? I have a headache and I'm so nauseous.

I can't decide which is worse: being blind, or being able to see but being sick about it.

Things that have been ODD about this week:

  1. We had 3 inches of snow yesterday. APRIL 10th. Not on.
  2. Two of our designers gave their notice this week at work. (And then one was asked to leave before her last day because she wasn't doing any work. EEK!) Thankfully, neither was on my markets, but it's still a blow to the department.
  3. I have been working all week (on and off) on my annual performance review worksheet. Rating and commenting on my performance is awkward. I feel a tad full of myself marking just about everything "Highly Effective." (In my defense, that isn't the highest rating; I didn't give myself an "Exceptional" in anything.)
  4. I have been practicing saying NO to drama in my life. It has been happening with varying degrees of success.
  5. I feel like I've gone two weeks without a weekend because I was so busy last weekend (SCBWI conference and then friend Kris was in town. And we partied.)
  6. I had a Doctor Who dream last night, though David Tennant did not make an appearance. Instead, I had a son who was a time lord, and I got to meet him when he was all grown up and I was still this age. His name was Tom. It was a nice dream, if a bit random!
  7. I realized that I don't really want to be a part of the video thing the people at work are doing — at about the same time they realized that, hey! Lacy has experience with this stuff! She can help us draw up a budget! And do storyboards! And write a script! And edit! :P

Thank god it's Friday.
