    Spring is here, and with a vengeance

    It’s crazy-hot here now and it’s not even June yet.

    Summer started early this year. Like, practically in January. Seriously. The only snow I saw all winter was in March when I went up into the mountains of Norway, where I stayed in a 400-hundred-year-old cabin and slept under reindeer skins and had a storybook sauna that culminated in running starkers from the sauna out onto the side of the snowy mountain and taking a snow bath. (Best. Feeling. Ever, I might add. If you’ve never done this, do it! My body was so happy for the rest of the day I can’t even tell you. Katy and Endorphin Rush, sittin’ in a tree …)

    Anyway, I digress. Which is actually fine, because I don’t have much to say except “Hey! Where’d my winter go?” and “Hey! Why was it 30C [86F, for you Americanos] on May 25th? That cray-cray!” So after our non-winter, we’re having non-spring, or maybe bulked-up steroid-gobbling spring, spring with a vengeance, uber spring, spring in drag as summer. It’s bad, I know it is, and if we’re having July temperatures in May, I shudder to think what July temperatures will be like. Probably like July temperatures on Venus. And I won’t like that. Lord no, I won’t.

    But the world is full of green and growing things right now, and baby things, and it’s very, very pretty. Very very.

    What beautiful cuolors, and perfect for the season! Seeing all these pieces put an instant smile on my face. Now if you could only capture the easter bunny bouncing around in the background hiding chocolate eggs and nibbling on carrots…
