It's still winter here in North Carolina as you can tell from all the bare branches on the oak trees in my yard:
BUT...today was a beautiful 70 degree February day. I actually worked in the yard for a while (I moved my compost bin from the side yard to the back), and I saw some signs of spring (daffodil buds!):
I love living in a place with four seasons even though the summers here in NC are brutal (heat, humidity, BUGS!). But it's all a trade off, I guess, and the three seasons I love make it all worth while.
Here's what else I did this weekend: vacuumed my house, PhotoHunted, got my hair cut, watched the UNC Tar Heels beat the University of Virginia, went out to eat seafood at a great local Greek restaurant, and then watched the latest Woody Allen movie (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and started thinking that I REALLY need to go to Spain.
Then watched a documentary about Enron (my boyfriend's choice, not mine, and it made my blood BOIL and made me even more grateful that Obama is our president because it so clearly showed how the so-called "right" have done everything they can to run this country into the ground), slept, grocery shopped, played with the cats, checked out Slow Talk and my fellow Slow Travel bloggers, made dinner and lunch to take to work on Monday, watched the 60 Minutes story about "The Miracle on the Hudson River" (yay for the good guys!), and now I'm doing my Sunday post.
Hope everyone else has had a great weekend. I'm really enjoying reading all the posts from our February blogging challenge.
(The title of this post (Weekend Update) makes me think about Chevy Chase and the classic days of SNL!)
