HELLO LAMP-POST, WHATCHA KNOWIN’?

A POSITIVE CONTRAST

Here we are enjoying the first warm sunny day of 2016. It’s almost 70 degrees with glorious sunshine.

I’ve got a cold. The first of the year. It seems unfair while we have genuine spring weather — the first in three years. Like fine wine, it is meant to be savored.

I’m going to the doctor on Thursday. No available appointments today. Apparently I’ve got “what going around” and every doctor in the practice is booked solid.

No big surprise there. If it’s going around, we’ve usually got it. Yes, Garry’s got it, too, so I don’t have to take it personally.

There’s nothing personal about a cold. It’s just one of those things.

Spring is coming early. After three years in a row when we were still buried up to our chins in ice and snow in March, this year, we are going to really have a real season of spring. Hello lamp-post!

If I can stop coughing for a little while, I might be able to get out there and enjoy this bright, lovely, day!

So, from yesterday morning, a few kitchen pictures. Indian corn on the hook.
