I whine and complain and feel sorry for myself for months and months over how cold and dark the Minnesota winter is. I question why I live here...why anyone lives here. And then Spring shows its lovely face and I remember. Ah yes, this is why people live here. Yeah, the winters are horrible, cold, dark, and long. But we have seasons. We have variety. And we don't take a great weather day for granted because there is no guarantee that tomorrow will provide another.
Soon it will be warm enough for Steve and I to take our lunch breaks outside in the park. I'm looking forward to that. Downtown St. Paul is gorgeous. For now, we'll take brief walks to the Landmark Center (pictured) for lunch or to the James J. Hill Library for books (duh.). No fun books lately though. I'm studying for the MCAS (Microsoft Certified Application Specialist) Exams. Nothing too hard, but I feel the need to brush up on my mad skills. Isn't the library so great when you don't want to spend shoe money on books? Heck yes it is.
