spring ahead

I think I don't blog as much anymore because I don't have a scanner and taking pictures of things just never seems quite as good to me. Except when they're really fun pictures of sisters and cousins hanging out and not just because we have to.

For those of you who don't know, we're now entering my favorite season: Cadbury Mini-Egg season. Oh, also spring. Although I can't imaging how a California spring could in any way compare to the revitalization and restorative power of a northeastern April and May. Not to complain, because its actually gorgeous here and I deserve, at the very least, an eye-roll for my griping about the rain that we so desperately need. In my defense, 6 days of rain in a row is a lot of rain, unless you're in Seattle, then maybe it's still a lot but just more common and no less unpleasant.

I don't even know what I'm talking about.

This morning, like many other mornings during northern California winter, it was raining. Really hard raining though, like the sideways kind, like the kind that gets your jeans really wet. To make ourselves feel better we went out for fancy burgers and curly fries and then to Trader Joe's to get tofu cream cheese and free coffee samples and to look for the mint hot chocolate that I know Jen likes (they didn't have it) and by the time we got home the sun was out. Crazy crazy.
Even though the sky had cleared and it felt much warmer it was still really blustery. And the plum tree in our backyard has been blossoming for the past week so all of the pedals were blowing all around and it looked instead like it was raining flowers!!
