Ahhh…just when you think you are rounding the corner into spring and there could not possibly be any more snow, a Friday Surprise:
Thankfully the city decided to just brave it and complain, like proper New Yorkers. Everything was running, schools were open and we went to work. And honestly, it was still kind of pretty. Especially the trees that reminded my of powdered donuts. (I am in a Donut Phase. No judgement!)
But I think we are done for the season. For real. I am seeing all sorts of buds all over the place and my fall bulb planting is beginning to reveal itself, so I suspect I will be putting away my wellies and filling up my Nephew’s Easter basket in no time. Fingers crossed!

Mr. H and I had previously decided to stay in Brooklyn this weekend, and it seems fitting. I don’t think you can go anywhere in the city and not hear your favorites, old and new. But even though it is all in tribute, every song I heard tonight made me smile, both wistfully and appreciatively.
MCA, Adrock and Mike D., I will miss listening to what was next.
