happy equinox

First day of spring today!  It was a nice, beautiful spring day.  Temps are supposed to drop into the mid 30's tonight, however.  Further proof of global warming...

I was up bright and early this morning because one of my offspring had earned us both a ticket to Saturday detention.  Detention was supposed to be 4 hours, but I guess the administrator in charge had better things to do with her day.  After picking up several bags of pine cones (I kicked them together into piles; he picked them up),. and doing a little dusting, we were done in a little over two.  I didn't complain.

Because 60 miles away, my Godchild was celebrating his 2nd birthday, and with this pleasant turn of events, we would be able to make it in time for the party.  Fortunately, I'd bought a gift Friday night, just in case...

Here is a picture of the little one checking out the teenage cousin's ipod touch.

It has been a long day for me.  My lower back is giving me trouble (an ongoing thing) and it has been particularly stiff this week.  I haven't slept well for several nights, but I'm hoping that tonight is different!  Night-y night.
