Another week, come and gone. Last week was a good one, catching up from a vacation week. It led to a nice weekend, and we managed to fit in one more day of skiing. Depending on the weather, it might be the last of the season for us. I'm excited about how much we were able to do this year and how much the boys improved. It's so much fun!
Now that ski season is coming to an end, I am ready for the snow to go away and for Spring to make a sudden appearance. We are entering my least favorite season - the wet, cold days of Spring. So many people hate Winter, but I am not one of those people - it's Spring that punishes me. I will spend the next two months waiting for the flowers and warmer days to arrive.
Looking back at my archives, I notice that I write less in these months. Perhaps the dark, muddy days aren't photogenic enough? Perhaps I'm grumpy? Probably both. So my posting frequency may stay reduced for a bit. Something about this weather reduces my motivation to write. I am heavy in thought, but I pull myself back somehow. That said, it is my big birthday month (40!). I also want to find the magic in the everyday as much as possible. We'll see how it goes.
As usual, I stayed up too late to watch the Oscars. No surprises, but lots of beautiful people and fabulous performances. The group selfie was probably the most fun moment of the night. I did finally see Blue Jasmine, which I can't say I necessarily enjoyed; but I appreciated it very much, and Cate Blanchett's performance is stunning. I still need to see 12 Years a Slave. Soon.
This week is shaping up to be a busy one, and I'm already looking forward to next weekend. My birthday celebrations begin on Saturday, with a day in New York with friends. I am so looking forward to it. Even if it is gray and cold, New York is magical.
