It’s Not All Mary Poppins

No, I’m not dead

… nor, sadly, vacationing someplace fabulous.

Nope, it’s just March, and March is a long, weary month from me, the final installment of a long, weary winter. If spring came to Ottawa in March instead of April, I’d probably have been posting these last two weeks! My reserves of energy drop precipitously in March, and though I am managing to get lots of interesting things done — maybe I’ll show you some next week — I have to pace myself. Blogging has never managed to make it to the top of the day’s to-do list… which honestly seems to have worried a few of you. I am touched (and flattered!) by the emails of concern. Thank you!

However, the temperatures are much milder now, the snow is receding dramatically, and the sun is shining brilliantly, at least yesterday and today. I suspect I will be back to blogging next week.

Not Monday, however. On Monday I am taking the day off, and am going to a SPA with a girlfriend!!! I’ve never been there, but I’ve heard wonderful things. The perfect solution to the March doldrums, I’m thinking.

(Hm. That link takes you to the main page, which, the spa being in the province of Quebec, is in French. If you want to see more, but don’t read French, there’s an “English” tab at the upper right. You can also check out the Photos tab.)
