Springy Spring

Ahhhhh today is the warmest day of the year so far in Nashville. The weather astrologer says it is 77 degrees outside. I am celebrating the warmth and wind.

I wore sandals to work. My toes are free and merry.

I walked around downtown during lunch, without a scarf or overcoat.

Just a few more minutes until I can be outside again, with the warm wind embracing me like a favorite blanket. I will walk the short and sketchy journey to my car, turn on the radio, and roll down my windows. Even though I the drive will be windy, I will have my windows down, and I won't care if my hair looks like I put my finger in an electrical socket. When I get home I will open the windows. My cats will perch on the window ledges looking out at the psychotic kids that play in the cul-de-sac. Their noses and whiskers will be twitching ... trying to figure out what the wind smells like. Eau-de-nearby-dog perhaps?

Oh good the clock says there are less minutes until my departure. Come on 5:00. I must go!
