A spring in my step

What a glorious day the dogs and I enjoyed today. The wind was quite nippy, but the sun was brilliant and the water sparkled invitingly. Maggie did her first flying leap off the dock of the year, and Sadie sunned contentedly on the towel next to my lounge chair. The giant herrings and geese and ducks and robins were all in attendance of our little party, with only my husband missing-sigh.
Looking at the beige grass and leafless trees, it is hard to believe that in another month everything will be full of life and energy again. In the mean time, my tiny seedlings are thriving in their little tray in the house, and I fuss over them daily like a new mother, eager for their leaves to take shape and their wonderful fruits and vegetables to be born. Soon my swim suit will be my uniform, the boat my vehicle of choice, and the southern heat will again blanket the days and make sultry the nights.
Yeah for spring, and new beginnings. Hurry up summer!

Honorable mentions that I am thankful for: baby showers only come every year or so (thank goodness), I am a day away from submitting my first batch of queries to literary agents (trying not to panic), I have so far written 12 more pages of my next book this weekend, and it is rest week for P90x (hip-hip-hooray!)


  1. What a wonderful day! Funny, we had a baby shower today too. Good luck with the query letters...very exciting!!!!

  2. Back on the P90x?! Go get 'em! And yes, baby showers are exhausting...
