Pink magnolia, blushing and coy

It's the best day of the year, y'all. Sunny and 85, the daffodils and hyacinths are up. Trees are blooming everywhere. It's GAWJUS. I just pulled sheets off the line and made up my bed. It was all I could do not to immediately climb in and fall asleep. Is there any smell better than fresh line-dried linens? OK, maybe a man right out of the shower, but little else.

For the past 16 years or so, I owned one house or another. Normally this is a busy time of year, cleaning up garden beds, the first mowing of the yard, and general cleaning up from a long winter. That's been the way of things for a long time, until now. It's a strange feeling for me, with none of that to think about since selling my house last fall. I worked this morning, and then worked out at the gym after lunch. After that, I went for a 3 mile run, then stretched for a while. I went to the coffee shop and chatted up my bitches there whilst sipping on an iced mint tea. Now I'm gonna queue up the new stuff from The Weepies (PERFECT spring/summer soundtrack!), and sit outside. I think I'll prop my feet up and read.

Speaking of reading, I'm most of the way through The God Delusion. I'm really enjoying it. You get a good explanation of why the odds are great that there is no god, but it's presented in an accessible way, full of interesting quotes and humorous anecdotes. It's like blink (for infidels).

Then yoga tonight. I'm not bendy, but I'm getting there.

Nice day, huh? Still, it would have been even better with you along.

Bendiness is such a good feeling (not to mention useful in *ahem* certain situations).

Release the hamstrings!

Isn't that a Rufus song?

Seriously, though? I wish I was you right now.

Susie, that just made me snort.

Michael said...

Me, too.

Release the hams
Release your love
Release the hams!

Yoga went well tonight. I rocked the screaming squirrel (is that a real pose or was bitch messin' with us?).

"I rocked the screaming squirrel."

I want that written on my tombstone.

Speaking of reading, I hope you know Novak Djokovic is in this month's GQ.

Michael said...

I didn't know. Hmmm, I usually pick up GQ unless someone douchey is on the cover.

Michael said...

I just checked online. Is it Robert Downey on the cover? Num.

Frontier Psychiatrist said...

Yes, it's the Robert Downey, Jr. issue.

Here are the pictures and an article from Men's Vogue:
