I spend far too much time grumbling about the allergy-inflicted ick that normally accompanies spring, what with its drastic weather changes and copious amounts of pollen.

Instead, today I shall sing its praises.

1. The cover keeps blowing off our grill. I think it's trying to taunt me with its shininess. Damn it. Now I'm dying for some grilled corn on the cob, my absolute favoritest food in the world.

2. I planted seed flats this week! Three varieties of tomatoes (Sugar Snack, Roma, and Bushsteak) at 8 plants apiece, 8 broad-leaf basils, 8 eggplants, 8 variety peppers (Hungarian Wax, cayenne, etc.), 8 Sweet bell peppers, 8 cumin, 16 lavender, and 16 creeping thyme. I'm not done with the seeds either! I've still got container mint and lettuce to start. And let's not forget all the seeds that will be directly sown: burpless cucumbers, zucchini, squash, okra. Woooooot! I'll post picspam in a week or two when the seedlings emerge.

3. I've been running again! Granted the ear ache has kept me waylaid a bit, though I desperately need to start hitting the pavement on a regular basis; I've got a half marathon in a month and a half!

4. Buds are out on the trees! Three pitiful little crocuses have popped up in the front flower bed. The bunny has returned to the back yard. The lily bulbs are poking their noses out.

5. I desperately hope our lilac bush recovers this year. It was shorn in half by a drunk driver last year (yes, a drunk driver) who hit the side of our corner lot, drove up the seven foot embankment, clipped our 40 foot locust tree with the mirror, and drove down the other side of the embankment, narrowly missing our neighbor's car. Sometimes it's quite entertaining to live in the 'hood.

What about you ladies and gents? Has spring sprung where you live?

Yesterday was the day of digging into a giant nasty pile of crap that had been festering on my to do list. All kinds of icky grown-up things that I'd been putting off. I feel better for having tackled most of it (or at least getting the ball rolling for some of the items). Who am I kidding? I feel like I deserve a flipping medal. :) There's still quite a bit of looming ick to be handled, but I'm feeling a little more on top of things, and the muse has returned!

The big exciting news is that the [info]lm_hgficxchange  is open for prompts! It's the first time this particular exchange has run. So far, we only have 12 sets of prompts. The prompts are superb and should be lots of fun to write. If you want to play along but are having trouble coming up with a prompt, let me know and I'll be happy to lend you a hand. My muse seems to like coming up with them. My problem is that I've come up with one prompt I lurrrrve and don't exactly want to include backups. :) Prompts are due by the 10th, and fics aren't due until May 17th. Plenty of time to write a story featuring every one's second favorite DE.
