mm-make today amazing
Hello, May!

Is it the blue sky? The sun peeking through the clouds and welcoming our bumper crop of grape hyacinths? The complete and utter LACK OF SNOW? I’ve no idea, but I’m excited to welcome a new month *without* my usual panic over how much time has passed already this year.

(Ok, wait, let’s pause for a brief hyperventilated breath. Whew. I’m better now. Thank you.)

Whatever the reason, I feel ridiculously upbeat and chugging away at my edits and revisions. I hope you feel the same, and join me in asking ourselves every morning – what can we do to make today amazing?

But maybe today is already amazing, and we just need to recognize why.

Or possibly that's too much philosophy before breakfast.

Anyway, I've decided I need to take more vacation days from work. I've got a ton of time built up, to the point where HR keeps sending me automated e-mails nagging me to take time off, but I tend to hesitate to take it because I'm the only one here who does what I do. Even if I only take a couple of days there's always a pile of crap waiting when I get back. But you know what? Screw that.

Today is amazing because I won't be back here until Tuesday. Ha!

Also, I saw about 30 Canada geese wheeling around in the sky above the slough on the way to campus this morning, so that was pretty damn cool.

OOOhhhh, nice. :) It *is* already amazing, isn't it? ESPECIALLY with a block of time off work. Good for you! Now, what are your plans? No plan? Have fun whatever you do.

Not so much plans as notions. One of those notions is to spend some quality time at our local book shop. We got paid today. :D
