Sitting here at my desk on a gorgeous spring Sunday afternoon, looking out my study window at my neighbor's HUGE redbud tree in full bloom. Drinking a tall iced vodka and soda with lime and feeling mellow from a fortuitous (who am I kidding, I did it on purpose) interaction with painkillers. Reading mimi smartypants and periodically laughing aloud, to the great joy of my husband and the Pints, who are currently sequencing their record. (They always think that I'm laughing at them.) Also, I'm wearing earplugs, so everything seems very faint and muffled to me.
I'm wrapped in a cocoon of spring and substances!
(And also I'm procrastinating! Although I bet any paper that I wrote now would be totally awesome.)
