With days like these...

Today is one of the days that I realize I’ve been away from California for much too long:

Upon checking the thermometer that hangs outside one of our windows and seeing that it was already 32 degrees out, I literally squealed in excitement (sorry about that, still-sleeping-Trevor).

It’s easy to get taken in by a day like this, where the sun is shining, the wind is mild and the shade temperature is 20 degrees higher than it has been for the last 2 months… It’s like when you get out of a long-term relationship, and a few months go by and all of a sudden it’s not so raw anymore. And you run into your ex, and it feels so normal. It’s all too easy to feel like the other person has changed, and that it’s time to open yourself up to them again. Like, maybe today I won’t wear tights under my jeans.

But it’s dangerous! Don’t get sucked in! It is only February 11. There is at least another full 6 weeks of winter ahead of us – and then another 6 weeks of rain. ::Sigh:: Spring, in Boston.
