Well spring has finally sprung in the Lower Mainland and I am back into a great routine with writing/editing and exercise. Today I rode around UBC on my new road bike — a Norco VFR 1 — lightweight and faster than a speeding bullet
It is such a joy to do sports without having to wear glasses — if any of you are considering getting laser eye surgery — don’t hesitate a second more. It is really worth it. Sometimes I forget that I have had the surgery — my eyes don’t bother me at all, but then I see a tiny little bud on a tree and realize how lucky I am to have 20/20 vision in one eye.
My front yard is full of crocuses and sprouts are popping up everywhere. My son James spent Saturday raking up the dead leaves and has drawn out a plan for this year’s garden. We are going to hold off planting the flower boxes until the Cherry Blossoms pop and it is predicted that this year, this will happen in the first week of March. I hope so!
I have posted some photos of some of the things I did on the weekend to celebrate spring.
My best friend in Toronto is snowed in…hmmm.
