Friday, March 9, was my last day at work for a while and as I rode my bike in the morning I felt a change in the air. My back was straighter as I pedaled on. I felt … great! I’m hoping this is a sign that Spring is coming. A wonderful thought when I think about how, a few days ago I arrived at work with a long icicle hanging from my beard.
This morning I went over to the parking lot and did my tai chi in the damp, damp air and on the wet and gritty pavement. The excercise felt great and I hope to keep doing the set once a day over the entire March Break.
But the weather certainly messes up my hopes for some winter sports … the March Break is living up to its alternative name: Spring Break.
Two years ago we loaded up the car and took the kids to Florida on the March Break and that was a lot of fun, although expensive.
We’re not sure what we’re going to do this break: the only plans we have so far are buying Casino Royale (as it comes out on DVD this Tuesday, I believe) for a movie night. Then there is College Royal at the U of G next weekend which we always enjoy attending. We’ll play other things by ear I suppose.
