The weather channel is a lying dog. And I should know, I have a dog lying beside me as I write this. It’s still showing full sunlight, when there is not a patch of blue in the entire gloomy sky! And it’s chilly, in spite of the 5C temperature. Nevertheless, Maggie and I enjoyed our walk in the melting snow. Yesterday, I saw a ladybug. And last weekend, geese flying overhead. This is the ugly part of spring, but it’s nice to see some life returning to the city.

I was in Strathcona today, and had intentions of walking to the downtown LRT station via Mill Creek and Louise McKinney, but by the time I finished shopping, my backpack was too heavy to go traipsing through the woods. Stupid farmer’s market carrots.
