has flowers on it.
Autumn is by far my season of preference, but there's still something touching about Spring, even though it makes me sneeze.
I'm going to take some time off of my internet addiction and enjoy the season, before my allergies render me a virtual bubble boy. I've got a couple of yardwork projects planned, like fencing a small open patch in my yard, and fixing an old birdhouse. I'm planning a picnic my wife and kids too.
It's funny how the corporate mentality even leaks into my downtime thinking. This spring break is going to be a search for maximum relaxation results! Always looking at the bottom line. I need to work on that.
This has been one hell of a quarter. I'm looking forward to doing a little bit of non-productive reading. I'm reading The Graveyard Book to my kids, and am looking forward to finishing the Jerry Coyne
book I mentioned a few posts back. The soundtrack to my Spring break is probably going to be Bonnie Prince Billy's new cd Beware, which I expect to arrive in the mail any day now.
It'll be a good time. For our picnic, I'm thinking something simple: Go down to Sawyer Point, lay down a blanket, and bring a variety of cheeses, some grapes, a baguette, and some bottled water. Maybe after that we'll walk into the city and ride the giant mechanical penis, if it's still on display at the Contemporary Art Center.
See you in April!
