Oh hey there. Looks like it’s been a hot minute since I’ve dropped in and I swore I would never be that person to just “check in” buuuuuut here I am. Where have I been? Location wise it’s stayed the same – New York/East Coast. There was an itty bitty trip to California last weekend – my first in 6 months – but more on that later. The point is that I haven’t been very present on the blog and I’m trying to work out what that means for me. My job is one of the many million in the world that requires me at a desk underneath fluorescent lights. While it’s a good environment, it means that I don’t always have the drive to come home and plop down to sit in front of another screen. I know that I don’t have to apologize for not posting but it was really making me feel guilty. So, this is me posting to tell myself it’s ok not to post all the time. 🙂
I totally had this entire post planned out about Groundhog Day. Buuuuut, I missed it, by about two days. But, better late than never, right? So according to the little guy, we will be looking forward to spring a few weeks early! Here’s a fun article by the Washington Post.
The first prediction occurred in 1887 and Phil has seen his shadow about 100 times, not seen it 16 times, there are 9 years missing, and there is always the question of accuracy. Hey, if a groundhog can predict our weather patterns and it means spring will come early, then that’s fine by me. 🙂
There is an actual town, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where they throw a HUGE celebration for famous creature. There is even a phone number that you can call to get the forecast for that February 2nd. Isn’t that cool? Our 8th grade teacher was obsessed with the whole situation and I totally made the phone call, just to participate to the max. Yes, I was that kid.
Are you excited about spring/summer?
