Life is careening at a thousand miles an hour these days. Valiant Husband and I both have busy schedules, as do the two boys. It makes for a hectic time, but I wanted to share some of the things that are making me stop and enjoy life for a few moments.
Warm Weather is Back and the Trees are Budding
Last week it was sleeting. Today it's 80 degrees. Ack! I'm just happy that I got to work on the deck yesterday. I'm ready for Spring! Even though the dreaded yellow pollen is about to hit. I'm just happy for a break from the gloom. Also, the trees are finally getting serious about budding. It's almost as green as it is brown outside of my window, and soon the leaves will be out, my view of the neighbors will be blocked and I'll be living in my green oasis again.
Eldest is Driving!
I know, this seems like a scary thing. It is! I can hardly believe he's so grown. I'm nervous, but he's thrilled to have a new level of independence. Even though I can see some face-offs coming over who gets the car, I'm still rubbing my hands together and envisioning someone else finally doing some of the grocery shopping and taxiing around here!
Sunday Night TV
Why is it always feast or famine? For so long it seems like as if there's nothing to watch. Once Downton was over (so short a season!) it seemed like I only had Castle to look forward to. Now I've got Game of Thrones and Vikings both on Sunday night--and Mad Men just started on Sundays too! I'm going to enjoy the glut while I can.
A New Niece!
My sister had a baby! Her third, because she is braver than me. :-) Her name is Lila, she looks just like my sister did when she was a baby, and she's a big and healthy girl. I'm loving the pics and hoping I get to hold her myself when we visit in a couple of months.
A New Release!
This is what I have instead of a new baby. :-) I am excited about it, though! The Love List comes out in less than 2 weeks and is the first full length novel in my new Half Moon House Series. I'm having such fun with it, too! You can learn more at my website at www.DebMarlowe.com I hope you will all check it out.
