Today was a beautiful spring-like day, 75 degrees outside, lovely light breeze. So I prised myself away from my computer and took a two-mile hike in the woods, just me and my friend and a few dozen other people thrilled to be outdoors. There are no leaves out yet, but the ground and rocks were covered with mosses, dark velvet green, spongy brown, and lacy white.
Tomorrow it's supposed to snow, so this was just a teaser. Something to make us even more anxious for the final break from winter, probably three or four weeks away. For now, it was enough.
