Is it spring yet??

IMG_20180310_193633_501I am so over winter, I really am. We ended up with about 14 inches of snow in Danbury last Wednesday (some neighboring towns got as much as 28 and more) and I am really just over it. Some of it has melted but definitely not all. And they are forecasting another storm for Monday night into Tuesday. Right now it doesn't look like it will be a major one but I don't want another 4-6 inches on top of what we already have. I am ready for spring. Well enough complaining. At least we didn't lose power as a lot of people lost power the Friday before that due to heavy winds/rain and then also on Wednesday with the winds/heavy snow bringing down a lot of trees. 

Had another quiet weekend as Mike had to go to NJ (Princeton) on a last minute business trip. So I ended up having a very quiet weekend with the cats, lots of reading, drinking tea, etc. Friday night I watched "Not Another Happy Ending" Was a fun indie type movie set in Scotland. It had 2 actors in it who also starred in Outlander (Stanley Weber & Gary Lewis) which was a happy coincidence as well as Karen Gillian who I really like. So that was a fun movie to watch. 

Also been doing a good amount of reading. Let's see, just finished "The Accidental Empress" by Alison Pataki. It's historical fiction and based on Sisi/Elisabeth, the Austrian empress. I really enjoyed it. There's a second book/sequel that I just checked out from the library as well. I also read "Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walters and that was really good as well. Different people and settings as well as decades (now, 60ies, Hollywood, Italy, Scotland and more) all intertwined. Went to the library earlier today and checked out 3 more books. Definitely on a roll with my reading so far this year. 

Well tomorrow is already Monday again. I've been tired all day and I blame it on the fact that we switched over to Daylight Savings time. That always makes me feel out of sorts. And I hate that we switch so early in the year now (legacy from W. Bush) 2 weeks before Europe. Annoying. It was just starting to get light out in the morning when I have to get up and tomorrow morning it will probably be pitch black dark again. I hate getting up in the dark, one of my least favorite parts of winter, well besides the cold and the snow and all that. 

Well this seemed like a pretty bitchy post altogether today. I do apologize for that. Hopefully the next one will be a bit more cheery. Fingers crossed. 

Letter/Mail Update: A letter is going out tomorrow to: Celia/MA.
