Sunshiney Day

Spring is springing here in Middle Tennessee. Of course, it snowed on Friday. Nevermind that. Today it's sunny and 60 degrees! We might hit close to 70 tomorrow. I really need to take my car and get all of the salt washed off sometime soon. (Bob will be proud. He believes in keeping your car washed. I'm sure he prefers my car when it's at its cleanest sitting out in front of the office).

You do have to keep in mind that this weather does not mean winter is over for us. I'm sure we'll see more 30-degree days. Last year, it snowed the first Saturday in April when I was doing a 20-mile run and by the last Saturday in the month it was 70 degrees.

There's some sort thing about differeny freezes and winters that we have to go through before winter is finally here. I think it has something to do with when things bloom and that there's got to be a cold snap each time something new blooms. I should do some research on this. All I know is I know my grandparents say things about "blackberry winter" and stuff like that.

It makes me happy when it finally starts warming up. I definitely prefer summer to winter. I was just telling a friend not long ago how tired I am of layering and wearing coats. I'm ready for skirts and sleeveless tops and flip flops and my super cute plain ballet flats I just bought at the Super Target!

It's been an insanely busy day at work with the phone ringing off the hook and all sorts of people turning up and coming in. We rarely have people in the office unless they have an appointment or it's some random salesperson. Today we've had a myriad of visitors... a sales call, someone looking for cabinets (yay!), someone looking for a job (who proceeded to tell us about how he typically builds cabinets that "look just as nice as these and you can't tell they are much cheaper once you get them in!" (yeah dude, sorry, but we do quality work around here), and the guy who was looking for a man named Tim who he knows works at a cabinet place somewhere around here and do I know which one since it's not this one...

The sun is shining, and I'm smiling. Life is good today in TN. Off to a speed workout, a shower, dinner with my dad, and maybe a little American Idol.

Hey Melanie, do you get shin splints, and what do you do to make them go away?

Hooray for the bright, bright, bright, bright sunshiney day...

I love this weather too! Maybe not the allergies that go with it though...
