Happy belated birthday to my writer friend Carrie who celebrated on Saturday. May this be your best year ever.
It is officially warm out. The air conditioner is on because the humidity is so high. Allergies abound. When I woke up with allergy pressure, itchy eyes and stuffy nose, I knew it was time to close up the windows and turn on the air-conditioning. It is sad that having the windows open only happens for only a few weeks in the Spring and Fall. But, I am lucky to have AC and central heat. Can you imagine how miserable life would be without it? We are very lucky indeed.
Spring flowers are every where filling the world with color and scent. The lilacs are in bloom. They are so sweet smelling. I cut some and brought them in. They are better than any form of canned scent or candle. What's in bloom where you are? Don't forget to add these observations to your seasons notebook to help ground your setting in time and place. Now to write a book set in May. :)
