Soooo.... my last minute, last ditch attempt to do a Not Me post really failed completely. I should just have quietly gone off to bed and pretended as if I'd completely forgotten and had been too busy instead of admitting to the world that in fact I had absolutely no inspiration, yesterday. In the morning I had tried to think about the hyper dimensional mouse idea, or the other thought I'd had of blogging as my work badge (yeah, lame) Oh well. Looking down my flist page it doesn't seem a lot of other people found inspiration yesterday, either, though [livejournal.com profile] innocentsmith did quite well.

Lilacs are coming into bloom! I think this is a little early, but quite possibly it's within normal parameters, I'm not sure.

I feel like a cad having posted on Facebook about my Uncle having died and gotten a response of a virtual hug from someone I went to high school with. I was just honoring my Uncle's memory, it's not as if I feel personally bereaved. I was not close to him. He was just this guy who happened to be my Dad's brother. I don't think my Dad was ever as close to him as I am with my brothers, they were quite different in temperament, but of course it's going to be affecting him. I don't know.

Spring is about new life, though. We have leaves starting on the trees, popping out all over! Forsythias started I think two weeks ago and are still going - they're not near as ephemeral as the cherry blossoms, which bloomed one weekend and were dropping the next.

We went for a lovely walk with [livejournal.com profile] littleredhead and [livejournal.com profile] groundctrl, yesterday, only slightly shortened from what they had planned because part of the trail was blocked off because the ospreys are nesting. We didn't see any of them, but we did see a great blue heron. (And as I'm looking this up, I wonder if the herons we saw in Regents Park were grey herons? Because the Blues don't seem to have Europe listed as in their range at all.) And then we went to see the alewives running - they go from the ocean to spawn upstream. (When I was in high school I recall seeing a guy come up from the brook with two plastic bags, one full of alewives and the other of fiddlehead greens, and he was a happy man. :) He told me food is there for the taking if you know where to look.)

Well, bedtime, now. :)
