This time of year always reminds me of the Frank Sintara song, "You Make Me Feek So Young." I first heard it as a girl when I was taking voice lessons. Yes, voice lessons. No, I can not sing, but my parents indulged me, bless their hearts. I wanted to sound like Pat Benatar. My teacher made me sound like Tony Bennet. A flat, tone-deaf Tony Bennet. I did become familiar with some old standards though, which I came to appreciate later.
With the change in the weather, I have taken every opportunity to go outside.
I dined al fresco. On macaroni-n-cheese and apple slices in the backyard. I have heard that meat will be grilled out there soon, but the story is unsubstantiated. I'll know more at the weekend.
I took up jogging. In tight, counter-clockwise circles around the patio furniture, pushing Sam on his bicycle (which he can not pedal), while he squealed, "Really, really fast, Mommy! Really, really fast!"
I participated in a scientific study on the effects of vitamin D on intelligence. I sat in the sun and completed the New York Times Crossword Puzzle. But it was only the "easy" Monday puzzle. The results are inconclusive. More research must be done.
So, you see, I have been busy-busy.
How about you? Has your Spring sprung? And, how do you plan to take advantage of it?
