I keep thinking I won't have to wear my coat anymore. I keep thinking, "This is the last time this year I'll be able to wear this sweater dress." Why would I think such a thing?
Because spring has sprung, of course! This weekend I bought a frame for another raised garden bed. I bought another blueberry bush.
But that was all. (Temperance, temperance!)
Today it is blustery and cold. The wind pushed my car as I drove home from work. A limb just banged on the back porch roof.
Two weeks till spring break.
I try not to count down my life. I try to savor the days, the little things. Push exhaustion and frustration aside.
So, while I listen to this wind, I guess I'll make myself another cup of tea and look for the good in my students' papers. Maybe imagine myself as some worn tweedy professor in an armchair. Don't tweedy professors love reading student papers?
