It's snowing! After a couple weeks of spring-like weather, people around here will probably freak out.
I, however, will see the silver lining in this. It's been really dry. We need the moisture. The area's been on high fire alert off and on for the last month. High fire alert in February? Let it snow!
I'm busy this week with "Run With Lumber" activity. All the behind-the-scenes stuff. It all happens in one day, coming up in April, but there's lots to do between now and then, so I'm chipping away at it. Each year, I think, "this year will be my last of chairing this event". But then I admit, it does have its fun aspects. And when the teachers see me in the workroom with all the stuff in various stages of readiness, they get all, "Ooooh! Run with Lumber!" And I know the kids enjoy it.
Uhm, I did get a new bicycle this week. Oh, she is muy fun and muy rapido. Because of the nice weather, before the snow today, I was able to go on a couple of bike rides this week. Wind hampered us a little bit, but not enough to hide the noticeable differences between a road bike and a mountain bike. I've named her Tessa for "vitesse" - Italian for "speed". Bella remains aloof, but she'll come around - tough, big-boned girl that she is.
On that note, I'm thankful for my husband's gainful employment and our responsible handling of our finances that allows me to work part-time and do school volunteering as well as support my bicycling habit. That was a long sentence.
