plumtreeblossom: (summer)
As I have no place to be today, I've been spending lots of time on the balcony. Oh, the joyful feeling of sunshine on my bare feet! The treat of eating lunch at the little table on the balcony while reading my book. Watching birds splash and flutter in the puddle on the neighbor's flat garage roof. I didn't even mind the baby bug that landed on my page.

For those not in New England, we've had a cold spring. Just this week I was wearing my heavy winter coat. Now it's warm enough that I wish I owned a pair of shorts (I really don't have any). I also wish I was at the zoo. Maybe sometime soon.

Well then, I've had 24 days of not having to work. I get one more, then it's off to the new job. So glad my final weekend is a warm and sunny one!

The Wind

For those not in the Boston area today, the wind is like unto a frozen Antarctic blast that makes walking outside patently unsafe. I work in the Copley Square area downtown, which could be one of the windiest urban areas in the United States whether winter or summer, or at least seems so. Just now I was crossing Saint James Street, and it took every bit of my strength to get across the street with the wind hitting me from the side. I had to lean FULL weight into it or be blown over. If wind like that can almost blow 140-pound me off the ground, it could definitely send a 50-pound child tumbling head over heels into oncoming traffic. Do not bring children or pets into downtown today.

So, the laffy part of this is...who do you complain to? The only way it could be worse is if the ice sheets of last week were still on the ground, and in some places new ones are forming. It would have been a fine luxury to stay home due to the weather, but unfortunately that luxury doesn't belong to one such as I. And so, Boston wind, you get to blow me.
