Next week is the beginning of spring. We had showers all weekend but this morning the sun is shinning off the puddles left behind. It’s been a tough year on the world. Of all the years in the past this one has probably been the worst. But we persevered.
My husband and I stayed in and stayed down. It was stressful and caused some arguments. But we didn’t get the virus – instead, we got the vaccine. I hope it is as successful as originally thought.
I need to get out and do something that doesn’t involve my own four walls. I have some plans for May but in the meantime I plan to go to the gym and walk my own neighborhood. The dog loves that. Dogs are funny creatures. They love the simple act of walking around the neighborhood and wading through puddles. They love anything that involves getting out of their own house with their favorite human. After the winter we just had, I feel the same.
My publisher just announced a writing retreat in Greece! Research you say? Fairly pricey research. But if you want to make your novel real . . . I have a feeling if I went to Greece, most of my research would be on the beach, shopping, eating, and not sitting behind the computer screen. But the thought of Santorini is fabulous.
With spring comes the renewed hope for the world and a chance to once again get out and enjoy it – and each other.
Do you have plans for spring?
