It doesn't even matter that it's 45 degrees out right now.  It's SPRING, peeps!

We're heading south tomorrow in the hopes that spring has arrived there, weather-wise.  Okay, that's not really why we're heading south, but maybe it will work out anyway.  The Smarty has some work to do, so we're going to go with him and see some friends.  We'd planned to be there the next week anyway, so we'll just stay an extra long time.

It's strange to me to think of not being here for a while.  I've really grown quite fond of our little townhouse and this urban neighborhood.  I've been thinking of writing some blog posts comparing and contrasting the two lifestyles.  Maybe this longish trip will give me the opportunity and the photos to do that.  It's very different, living here and living there, and very difficult for me to favor one over the other.  It almost feels like I'm being unfaithful to my suburban life if I like it better here. 

But right now?  I like it better here

A lot of the reason for that is simple.  It's new.  It's different.  I like change and stepping out to do new and different things.  It's very energetic and active here - unlike the laid back pace of the suburban cul-de-sac on which we usually live.  Is anyone else interested in this?  Maybe I'll just compose blog posts to myself to help me process the differences.

And, I just have to share this - A little Junebuggy paper collage with crayon.  He says it's a white-headed crow in a corn field.  Thus, the barn and scarecrow.
