Is It Spring Yet?

Enjoying a glass of wine, watching the Junos and blogging. And doing it all from my new chair. The Junos are Canada's version of the Grammy's. The Weekend? He's ours. He can't feel his face but that didn't stop him from picking up some hardware. I'm a country music fan and one of my favourites is Dean Brody, who also won an award.

His songs often appear on my writing playlists. The above song in particular gives me plenty of small town inspiration. Music is integral to my writing process. It quiets the busy noise in my head.

Oh! My Chair!

Is this a good time to mention that I love my new chair. I'm still busy working on edits. As well as blogging from A to Z.

Insert fabulous idea that came to me whilst snuggled in bed which I'm failing to retrieve from my memory banks this morning. Gone Baby Gone. Looked up menopause and memory loss. Relieved to find out it's a thing. I could probably file that under over sharing.

Maybe it's spring fever? Maybe that's why I'm finding it hard to concentrate? My mind is wandering and searching for signs of spring in this northern half of the northern hemisphere. Making lists of things needing to be done outside. Imagining the types of flowers to be planted. Looking forward to relaxing outside in the sun and the warm. Bare legs. Cocktails on the patio. I don't want to be sitting inside. I want to be outside doing after being cooped up for months. We took a country drive on Saturday and, even though there's not a blade of green grass in sight yet, the sun was shining and the birds were soaring. We've actually seen a couple of butterflies. I don't know how they're surviving since yesterday the temperature dipped down again to +5 C. But it warms my heart to see them.

How about you? Are you suffering from spring fever?

Spring here in Mexico on the Caribbean is nights, low humidity. Lasts only 2-3 months, but delicious, because when the heat arrives, it clings to the humidity and drapes over everything like damp hanging moss until only a dip i water or a cool shower can save you. Of course air conditioning.

Lovely words, Em-Musing! You probably use your air conditioner like we use our furnace. To make life bearable during the season. I've been to Mexico, on the Caribbean side. It was a wonderful vacation. I can't wait to go back!
