After an exhausting night with little or no sleep thanks to the little dog, I decided to try the lunchtime nap. I bundled up and plodded out to the car, where I reclined my passenger seat and laid down as best as I could. The car was delightfully warm in the unexpected sunshine. Soon I had to take off my puffy goose down coat and use it as a pillow instead. I easily drifted off to sleep and slept for a solid half hour.
I woke feeling more energized and decided I couldn't waste my entire lunch hour. I hopped up, put my coat and scarf back on, and off I went. I wandered down past the tennis courts, through the cafeteria in case there was an appetizing goody to be had (nope), and back up the hill to my office building. The sun was shining, the snow was melting, and the air felt fresh and almost warm.
By the time I was most of the way back up the hill I'd unbuttoned my coat, removed my scarf, and then finally shed the coat altogether.
I've seen the 7 day forecast. I know that snow and cold will be back in force by the weekend. But today seems like spring, and I will enjoy it while it lasts.
