March and My New Skills
Per weirdo New York weather, today is almost 70 degrees. It's a tease, this March. Two days ago it was frigid, now this. And even this - it feels like spring, but it's not. This (see photo) is spring. And I am ready.
I don't even have any plans for spring, per se. I have this picture in my head of Edie and I going to the park with books and sitting under a tree, and having onlookers smile benevolently at us. But, as an everyday thing, that might not happen. Mostly I just want to leave the house without putting Edie in her bunting suit, and without my coat.
And yeah, it's possible that I only want this so that it makes leaving the house faster when I need something important, like a coke, or a bag of sugar to make fudge*. But I don't think that makes it any less important.
*I've sworn off store-bought candy for Lent. as a result, I've gotten really good at making fudge.
