Ready for Spring to Spring

It’s been a few years since I’ve spent such a long stretch on the East Coast. By now I feel like I should be back out on the road, somewhere much warmer. Spring is taking much too long to arrive, and even though we’ve barely slowed down I’m getting itchy. A contract was signed on the New York City apartment just last night, so things are looking good on that front. On the other hand it’s a bit daunting to be on the verge of homelessness. For now we’ll be squatting in the City converting the inflatable mattress each day to an inflatable couch and trying to keep a little income flowing in any way we can.

It was nice to be able to spend Easter with family on Cape Cod. Dad is getting very into Geocaching, so we were able to enjoy getting out and doing that together. A trip to Atlanta allowed time with Donny’s family, while tornadoes in the area were the weather highlight. The long drive there and back was therapeutic, I think. Now we’re gearing up for a quickie trip to Aruba next week. In case you didn’t imagine there’s more to come soon on that.

Oh, and the tree above is an amazing old weeping beech behind the post office, near some nature trails in Yarmouthport on Cape Cod. Maybe more on that too. . . –HT
