Spring happens

Yesterday was the first day of spring. I was all ready to run out in the yard and do my "dance of spring" when I was pulled up short by a fresh coating of snow. Gee, it would have been such a spectacularly dramatic dance, too.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Today is warm (60 f) and sunny. The four cats are taking turns
sitting in the open window listening to the few newly-returned
robins and smelling the fresh air. The neighbor kids are on their
way to a birthday party. Peace hangs in the air.
I went to the library to pick up a tax form so my friend AF can
do my taxes. I have tried to do them myself but I get so anxious I can't think straight--literally. It's pathetic, I know, because I don't have anything complicated and I'm a fairly intelligent woman and should be able to think it through. I have really tried but I invariably turn into a blithering idiot after the first page.
"It's not my fault! I'm a words person, not a numbers person!" Anyway, happy spring to you all.

We have someone do our taxes, too. It gives them a job and us relief!
