today might be the first legitimate day of beautiful weather here... the sun on my yard illuminates the emerald leaves, half-sized and stretching themselves out more each day, the birds flit past windows and across lawns, and there's not a cloud in the carolina blue sky. and i am going to spend the bulk of today in the hospital ... sigh. for reasons that escape me, meg has 2 separate pre-op appointments this afternoon, and i will miss this glorious day. of course, meg is worth it, and there will be many more beautiful days to come... but there's something about wanting to sit on my porch all day in the fresh sunshine that i can't shake this morning. i'll definitely have to spend the morning outside!
happy day to you all!
