Happy Friday everyone. How are you? Things here have been the same chaos as the last few weeks but there are some positives to focus on. For one, spring is in the air. They have closed the skating trails here and I am starting to wake up to the soothing sound of dripping icicles and chirping birds. The sun has been shining and the temps are close to 0 degrees Celsius, which is pretty warm for this time of year in this part of Canada. I am also leaving for vacation in less than two weeks. I cannot wait, as you can imagine. I have been burning the candle and more than two ends these days and the rest is definitely a requirement to my self sustainability. I have lots to get done beforehand so I am not exactly counting the days until we leave, but the thought of chilling out is definitely on my mind.
How is the weather for you all? Is spring in the air where you live?
