Spring

Yesterday it was so nasty out that I abandoned my bike ride and took the train instead--it just wasn't worth arriving at my appointment chilled, soaked, and windblown.

Today it was spring.

While waiting for my old pal Karen to arrive for a visit from the Olympic Peninsula, Graydie and I sat out on the porch with our coffee.

After Karen's visit, I pried a few more pieces out of the closet and unhooked the electrical bits. Tomorrow I should be able to convert the remaining structure to a pile of wood and a dish of nails. Then it will be time to get bids from the electrician and the plasterer. And the guy who can take all that lumber to the Rebuilding Center for me.

All the windows in my hollow and echoey bedroom are wide open tonight. My bed linens, which were out on the clothesline in the positively April-esque breeze most of the day, have that wonderful fresh-air smell. I think I'd better make my bed so I can go lie in it.

Lovely sunshiny photos! Our weather remains mixed in the UK; bright sunshine one moment and a wintry (sleet) shower the next. But although we've had record-breaking wind and rain, we've also had a warm winter. I remain cautious about its being spring yet.

I've been following the UK weather news a little bit, and it seems like it's been pretty trying in the last several weeks.

I have to remind myself that every single year in February we all declare "Spring!" and then winter comes again for a few more weeks. It came again today.

I wouldn't be too hasty about hustling out the lumber; at least some of it can be re-used in the new layout.

The new layout will be particleboard, foil, melamine and glass, courtesy of IKEA. There's one solid sheet of heavy plywood in the closet that I'll have a use for, and I'm preserving the baseboards (I think...if I can) but otherwise I'm planning to send everything to the Rebuilding Center, where it will have a shot at a second life.
