spring arrives
posted by soe 5:34 pm

Spring has sprung a couple weeks early here in D.C. The daffodils and crocuses are in full bloom and the buds on the trees look ready to pop.

Yesterday I celebrated the arrival of warm weather with a bike ride to Eastern Market. The impression I got from many of the vendors was one of joy that crowds were back on a regular basis.

Today I broke out the capris and sandals and walked down to Georgetown. I bought some t-shirts and a set of knitting needles for an upcoming project and spent an hour down on the Potomac with a slice of pizza and a soda and a book. I’m tempted to whip up a batch of iced tea, but since the weather forecasters believe we’ll be back in the 40s later this week, I suppose that might be premature…

Tonight we’ve been invited to a friend’s for dinner, so I’m off to prepare a dessert — chocolate cream puffs.
