Am I responsible? Working on Sunday

As I drove across the bridge at noon, the DJ said that it was the most beautiful day of the year so far. Mount Ranier was a hovering hulk of blue and silver on the horizon, the Cascades and Mount Adams made the whole panorama look like some kind of ridiculous postcard. So why am I at work right now? I'm sitting in a fluorescent-lit office apparently for the sole purpose of surfing LJ (that will change soon, I'm sure). All I want to do today is poke around in my back yard and pull out recalcitrant little weeds all afternoon, while the soil is still nice and damp from all the rain we've been getting and the poor little weeds can't get a good grip.

My very first daffodil of the year bloomed yesterday, and I discovered a little nest of crocuses tucked into the grass under the apple tree. They're the white and purple striped kind, and they looked just like tiny Easter eggs! Ah, glorious spring ... I hope the rain rolls in soon so that spending the next two months locked into my office will seem like it's not such a loss.

Re: Spring
So, do you think you should have taken your vacation somewhere sunny?

Re: Spring
Nah, I would have regretted going anywhere but Italy. It's been at the top of my list for years. It was pretty sunny once I got to Tuscany and Rome, although not like Mexico, I'm sure. I finally have my fill of Europe for the next year, I think. I think I'm up for Tokyo next. After some Canadian places.

Re: Spring
Oh man, I want to go to Tokyo again so bad. This is where we stayed last time, the Kimi Ryokan ... perfectly fine for the price, but damn hard to find the first time (a complete nightmare actually). I found this other place online, the Kangetsu, that looks SOOOOO attractive.
