The only thought that has been constant in my mind today was: spring is here!
My mind was doing cartwheels at this very thought and I can say that I spent every spare moment either in the ravine with Rex or on the balcony.
Do you remember I was complaining about children not coming out to play? Well they still don’t, or at least with the exception of four – all of them brothers and sisters, they don’t.
However, I don’t complain anymore. The aforementioned four can count for at least ten. They have a pair of lungs on them each and their favorite activity is to run in a circle, if possible in front of my balcony to excite Rex and they simply howl.
I have to give it to my mutt: he wants his treats so much that he whimpers a little but no bark passes his little doggy lips.
I also had an interesting conversation with my daughter: politics. Not Canadian or Romanian but American.
We discussed the candidates and made parallels between women in politics along history, with a brief digression towards Lucretia Borgia and Margaret Thatcher. Of course, some of the John Oliver’s shows were discussed as well.
At least it was something new because lately the only conversations were about black holes and differences between women position in the Japanese society and European one during the 17, 18th and 19th centuries.
Sometimes, getting too intellectual in conversations is too much after a long work day. One craves shallowness and just a bit of fun.
Even a book would do it for me. Considering that it is over midnight and I still want to finish the book I started this evening – and still have to wake up early in the morning, I will say bye for now. I am running a bit on empty after going to bed after 4 a.m. yesterday and waking up at 7 a.m.
See you, in other words!

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
(not too tempting, huh!)
