Spring, please stay!

I’m so ready for the weather to stay nice! I don’t have a sense of whether this spring is “average” for cloudy days/rainfall/cool weather but it has felt exceedingly long to me this year. I’m ready, SO ready for sunshine and warmth.

Yesterday was just nice enough. I spent a couple of hours wearing a sundress because I could. I arranged to meet Pramas for lunch in the market, where we blew a wad at Place Pigalle and dined on their famous mussels, delicious soups and where I had a sublime slice of buttery king salmon in a roasted tomatillo sauce, washed down with some of their excellent minty iced tea. I also made some progress on Kate’s passport situation, digging up old documents to prove my places of residence prior to her birth and getting a certified copy of my divorce decree and the parenting plan we submitted to the court. I have a request in for a copy of my now-nullified marriage certificate as well, though why it should matter to Kate’s citizenship whether her two American born and raised parents were married or not is a mystery to me. Maybe, maybe we’ll get this thing sorted out in time for her to go to her Dad’s for the summer as scheduled. Also attended a meeting for incoming sixth grade families for Kate’s school; I’m pretty excited about the focus of things and the 6-8 program that’s shaping up. Thankfully last night Tim offered to bring and bake his perfected deep dish pizza recipe for “game night” so I didn’t have to also cook; wine, pizzas, and strawberry rhubarb pie were consumed. I stayed up too late talking with Ray after everyone else left.

Today I had use of a Flexcar Honda Element and I did not waste it! Before breakfast I had the thing loaded up with electronics for recycling. We cleared out seven desktop computers, five monitors, two laptops, two printers, a fax machine and 179 pounds of miscellaneous peripherals (keyboards! I got rid of seven or eight keyboards). Then it was back for a second load, this time filling the vehicle to the brim with styrofoam and other non-recyclable packing materials. Then, up to Chez Sass to deliver leftover pizza where I got to hold Keegan for a good long time. A trip to the post office, a stop at the farmer’s market and now, finally, home for the night.

I picked up a bunch of great stuff for dinner tonight (and since I was running hither and yon today had a filet o’fish meal and that’s it, I’m starved!) including some morel mushrooms, fiddlehead ferns, and miner’s lettuce. Also some fresh asparagus, two kinds of stinky cheese from a new cheese vendor, and a fresh seeded baguette from the fine folks at the Columbia CIty Bakery. Man, I’ve got to stop writing about my food and go eat it!

10 comments to Spring, please stay!

  • I’m going to the Copacabana in the market tomorrow for a team lunch for work.
    Have you been?
    Is it any good?
    (I don’t like seafood so I won’t be ordering the paella or anything else with seafood.)

    • I’ve never been to Copacabana. There are so many places in the market that I’ve never tried! I get into a real rut sometimes, going to my favorite places and getting my favorite foods once I find something that I really like.

      The weather seems like it will be perfect for sitting out at lunch, though, so that’s always a bonus! Tell us how you like it.
