A beautiful day!

(if I hadn't traded this ATC a couple of years ago, it would have gone to my friend Jenny in Kansas ;)

Today the sky was a deep seamless blue, the sun was warm, the cafés had their tables on the sidewalk, and the general mood was lighter. Finally....spring! My sleep cycle is almost back to normal. I had no trouble getting to sleep last night, something that's been plaguing me since that phoney "spring forward" thing.


Other good things: The mail carrier delivered a box of bird-related treasures from Georgia, the giveaway I won from Cindy of
  • Plum Tree Antiques. The photo on her blog was great, but to actually have them in my hot little hands......!
  • Also in the mail, my tax return from the accountant with the magic word: REFUND. I mailed it to Ottawa right away, baybee! It's all a bit silly though; come June 15, I'll have to give most of it back in the form of a quarterly tax payment. But at least I didn't owe anything.

    And that makes three good things, doesn't it!

    2. Glad to hear you are sleeping better, I think the warmer weather makes us relax, instead of the cold tense sleepless feeling. Get out and enjoy the weather, sounds like next week will be back to mid teens.
