Slow starting spring
Wow, almost a whole week since I've checked in. Looks like this is morphing into a once a week blog. There's the loverly Georgie, sitting lazily with his hind legs slipping out to the sides. A couple of times this week I came home while Serge was out with him on his afternoon walk. What's so cute is that Georgie knows that I'm home, from my particular human stink I guess, and goes wild in the entry way before Serge lets him in the house. Once inside, he tears around looking for me to give me kisses. It's so cute and makes me fall in love all over again with him.
I've been trying to plan a little getaway for a couple of days, possibly during the holiday weekend in May. I inquired at the place I went for the English immersion weekend about their relaxation and foodie package which includes gourmet dinner with wine and a one hour massage. And they responded with the price and their delight in my interest in staying there. Two nights for a mere seventeen hundred and eighty dollars. Um, that's the price of a balcony cabin on a week long cruise! Oh how I wish I was in the kind of life circumstance where I wouldn't bat an eye at such a figure. Of course then I'd be an asshole, since that's probably a requirement for getting there.
Another relatively drama-free week has passed. I'm starting to feel a bit more comfortable in my new job, even though I'm still not completely sure of my role. I start with a new group tomorrow which is always stressful. It doesn't matter how many classes I've given, the first class with a new group always makes me nervous. I really hope I sleep through the night tonight.
Spring is late this year. The magnolia across the street is finally threatening to bloom, if it's not this afternoon, it'll be tomorrow I'm guessing. This has to be at least a couple of weeks behind last year. There's not a single leaf on a tree yet either. Today they're calling for temps in the sixties, so that should jump start things. My goal is to check back in Thursday so until then, have a good one. Peace.
