March On



A wee bit of randomness for this last Monday in March: 

Sunday was nice enough, long enough for a short ride; first of the season. Given-the-givens body feeling pretty good. A damn sight away from agile, but again, given-the-givens, pretty good. 

Tuesday (tomorrow) is the anniversary of the birth of this blog. I updated the inaugural post last year to commemorate the event, late. This year I am early. Whoopee. ten Years. Wow. WoW  

Saturday I intend to attend the first social event not connected to family in some/any way in many, many, (even more many) months. I'm a little nervous. Okay, I am a lot nervous. 

I do not believe Spring is here to stay yet. The photo shown is a couple of years old but is from a group labeled, "snow in April" (though THIS photo was taken in May). Point is, too soon to dust off the Spring togs, full on. My daughter is of the opinion that the winterizing efforts should remain in place until after 5 days of wanting to open the windows have gone by.  Five days feels long to long for fresh air. But, she has a point. We'll see how this week plays out, weather wise. 

The coffee experiment is going well. The household is now out of coffee. Having a cup at home means going out, which I am not apt to do. As far as coffee on the way to work, or at work, I feel the handle on that is fully and firmly grasped, given I've already gone two weeks without succumbing to either of those options. . 

And as for how I feel . . . given-the-givens, pretty good.

  1. Good luck for Saturday.
    It's interesting to think about weather, here we are (finally) cooling down, so it is the transition to wearing warmer clothes, closing the windows at night and not having fans on!

    1. Thank you. The transition from winter to spring is frustrating.

  2. Good luck with the coffee thing. That's gotta be a hard thing to give up. Not sure I could do it.

    1. It is proving to be not quite as hard as I thought it would be. I do have to make a point to keep coffee out of my path--for sliding back in, I think will be too easy.

  3. Glad to hear your coffee experiment continues to go well. HUGE congrats on six years - that's incredible! Best of luck to you on Saturday - I get nervous before things like that too.

  4. I think I started following your blog not too long after, maybe a year or so? I'm glad you started blogging.

    Love the pic! I own those same Chucks, or ones that are pretty close. Love that you were able to get out for a ride.

    Happy Spring!

    1. I am too. I'm glad you started following. :-)

      It is one of my favs. Sadly, the Chucks or no more. Must score another pair. Likely, not purple though. :-)

      Ahh yes, ride. :-)

  5. Happy anniversary! Impressed that the coffee restriction is still going, wow! Good luck at your outing Saturday, and love the socks. I'm hoping against hope that Spring IS here to stay.

  6. I too hope that spring is here sooner rather than later, but I know we will most likely get at least a bit of snow a few more time still before it is fully gone. Meh.
    Good luck on Saturday! Happy blogiversary!

    1. It's a group (at least, I hope). The invite indicated so. Eats (pot-luck) drinks movie. We'll see how it rolls.

  8. You have passed many good milestones. Especially the most recent triumph over the coffee habit. Happy 6th blog anniversary.

    1. Thank you. Suddenly I'm struck with the memory of the first day of first grade. Mrs. Weston. A plaid dress. White ankle socks. Mary Jane's. Being six.

  9. I haven't gotten my bike out yet - woke up to snow flurries. The 5 day rule might put me out to June : )

    I need to start a chocolate and jelly bean experiment.

    Congrats on the anniversary. I have really enjoyed getting to know you.

    1. Jeepers. Well, I just got back from walking the dog and saw frost on the cars.

      If you do, good luck and congratulations.

      Thank you. I have enjoyed your visits and getting to know you as well.

  10. The cherry blossoms are in bloom here. There will be sun all week and I am so happy about that. We get far too much rain, but not much I can do about it. Happy blogoversary! I switched to green tea lattes - had to get in caffeine somehow!
