Spring, still happy

We're having such a lovely spring here in Ithaca - lots of warm sunny days with a thunderstorm thrown in here and there to spice things up. I celebrated year number 33 yesterday with a near-perfect day. Actually, I should say this is a pretty near perfect week. A dear friend - the crazy Candie Branch - visited for the weekend, which was absolutely delightful. Paul and I did okay in our first tri of the year, and had a big BBQ dinner afterwards. Yum! I've had LOTS of chocolate cake, baked by mother, the stupendous baker. And Paul, A and I had a picnic last night on a swing overlooking Cayuga Lake. Life is good.

A has been a little under the weather, so he's sleeping A LOT - which is good for him and a little bit good for me too. It's helped me make lots of progress on projects. Check them out:
