Stayed home with a coughing J on Monday but it was so nice we had to go out and scramble on the woodpile in our yard's "back 40." The sun was warm enough that the air brought that damp, fecund spring feeling to our noses. It was almost sweet like a nice tobacco or something, though I don't know much about nice tobacco.
The snow is back today, but that 's okay too. Time goes so quickly when you're older and with kids that all the seasons come to you soon enough and there is no point in looking forward to them or doing anything but enjoying the one you're in. Gee, don't I sound like I'm at peace with the universe?
It just occurred to me that this photo could have come straight out of the video for "I Wanna Be Adored." J could pass for a mini Reni with that cap on.
