It was March 2nd yesterday, and the high was 78 degrees! And then today, we're under a winter storm warning and are supposed to get ice with 7-8 inches of snow on top. Great... Spring was such a tease!

So, while we were enjoying the beautiful weather yesterday, we bought a rake and some leaf bags... so ready to get in the yard and do some much needed work. But, now, we're going to have to swap the rake for a shovel. Oh well... perhaps a snow day will be in order?

Well, I must admit the abnormally nice weather yesterday did us all some good. I got a haircut... not a trim... an actual haircut with style (ooo....ahhhh). It's been a while since I've done that. Somehow, having long hair turned me into a bum, who relied on a ponytail for far too long. It's an attempt to transfer from the grad school student to professional. So, haircut is a step in the right direction. Also, it's a nice change for spring. And, really... I have quite a few things on my "to do" list for spring. Here are just a few of them:

* be a good gardener (plant a vegetable garden and transfer flowers to a new location... and then actually take care of them)
* try to be more active... which always seems hard when I'm writing papers, sitting in class, or studying. hm. will make an extra effort for this one
* control the clutter. in the house, in my life, in general. i hate clutter.
* have more fresh flowers in the house. fresh flowers are underestimated on how nice they can make you feel
