I love these early early spring days. I like being able to open my window to get some fresh air in here. Yesterday just felt like such a spring cleaning day, I dusted and swept and mopped and everything feels so much better now.
I went for a walk down around Point Pleasant Park yesterday. I love that park. It's like a little corner of home that got tacked onto the edge of the city. I love to be surrounded by trees rather than buildings, and to have something other than pavement and cement under my feet. I sat by the ocean for a while, just to see it, just to hear it. I realized that my apartment is the farthest I have ever lived from moving water (either ocean or river) and that is sort of sad. I know it's only about a half hour walk, but it still seems far. Anyway, I had a lovely time at the park (and +1 to 101/1001 goal #88).
It was also one of those days when it was just too nice out to sit down and eat a full meal, so I spent all day snacking. On Friday, roomie J's mom brought us banana bread, and I had cooked falafel (+1 to #30) and baked bread, so there was lots of snackable food. And then I had a strawberry-banana-chocolate smoothie, which was pretty much the most delicious thing imaginable.
I tried to do a little homework in the early evening, but then friends called me up. We went out for dinner and then hung out at their place and watched Hook, which is a fantastic movie. Walking home at 1 am wearing a dress wasn't too cold. I think spring must be on its way.
Sadly, this beautiful day will mostly be spent in a meeting, but I guess that at least guarantees me being outside long enough to walk there and back.
