Spring Ahead

It was a bit warm today, but, even I must admit, I'm not quite sick of spring yet. The birds were out, the flowers are just starting to bloom, and everybody's been out working in the yard. It really is starting to feel a lot like spring around these parts.

I saw a bit of the news and they said that, towards the end of the week, we'll be getting a cold front. They expect the high on Thursday to be only 51 degrees. That didn't stop today's high from reaching something like 86. Wow. It felt good.

I took a few pictures of Chase with his new 'do and I hope that everybody remembered to move their clocks ahead an hour. I also managed to get a new cable box.

It was quite an ordeal, that cable box was actually. I had to wait in a long line with a very pregnant woman who looked, for certain, that she was about to give birth before her number was called by the, ahem, "good" customer service representatives at Time Warner. Given what a slow bunch of clods they are (typically) all of us in line were very worried that she would "pop" long before she got a new cable box receiver. Honestly, it felt good to get out of there, even if it meant that I had to then go home and try to hook-up the new box.

Everything went according to plan though. I had a bit of trouble with the TiVo trying to learn the new remote, but I eventually got it to work. Presumably, there's now a wee little newborn infant with really good cable reception now too, out there, somewhere, in the greater Austin area.

I hope you had a good, though maybe less bursting, weekend.

Until next time...

Spring is not as advanced here, but it is definitely about to pop! Its interesting that in the city it is further along...I'm about an hour out...I think it must be that all the buildings and streets hold the heat longer....?

It's actually the same here. I just saw my first bluebonnet today, here in Austin, the city where I work.

Maybe because of the "urban jungle" we tend to notice the plants more when we're downtown? I don't know about that, but I do know autumn's days are numbered. Like it or not, spring is springing.

Bring on the bluebonnets!
