Anywhoo, he always has NPR on the radio. Yesterday, as I was riding the bus back to the lot to pick up my car, he started whistling. Immediately, I grinned ear to freakin' ear: he was whistling the Talk of the Nation theme music!
I might have fallen in love with him a little.
I told A. about this last night and he totally called me out on my crush. I am glad A. gets me.
2. I am starting to plateau at work and this is always bad news. I don't get antsy once I've met the challenges of a job, I go straight to miserable and utterly unmotivated. Any suggestions on how to re-engage in a job you've mastered? (I am not trying to sound snotty here. I can always try and do my job better and better. But that can get kind of boring.)
3.Last weekend A. and I met our friend H. for some cross country skiing. I am so, so, so bad at it. It was only the second time I've been on skis. They do not feel natural, or even remotely comfortable. They just feel big and long and they get in the way of me walking. I can't get my brain to let go of the idea of walking. In fact, once I started to get the hang of it I did ok with the "glide" stuff, but once we started to hit little hills and I less glided and more skiied, I just wanted to die. Bah. I did start to get the hang of snowplowing, though!
On our way to the mountains at the break of dawn, we traveled past a number of ranches. One field had a bunch of mama cows and young calves. Both A. and I saw one calf that was still wet and wobbly. He was brand new!! Brand new! Oh, my heart just soared.
4. It was glorious outside last weekend in the mountains, as it has been the past couple of days in town. The birds are singing their little hearts out and I've seen two ground squirrels coming up from hibernation at the house. Yesterday a coyote crossed the road in front of me, and I am starting to look to see if there are any baby antelope (none yet).
Spring! Critters! Calves! Wahoo!
5. We are supposed to get dumped on with snow starting Sunday.
I can't complain, though. We have had a mild winter )of course! We paid thousands to install a new wood stove!), and we have had a very dry March. We need the moisture, so I guess I should stand out in the field with my arms open wide and say, "Bring it on."
Happy Friday to you!
