Signs of Spring

It’s April 2nd, the first day of a long weekend, and it’s gorgeous out.

I’ve opened our windows to let the fresh air into our house for the first time this year. To me, one of the best things about spring is letting that sunny breeze inside.

We took our bikes north and spent the afternoon riding and climbing the country roads. It wasn’t exactly the longest distance we’ve ever ridden, but the climbs were tough and it was the first ride of the season. I’m going to tell you a secret – we are getting ourselves ready and trained for a little try-a-tri this summer. There, I said it. I think that means it’s a real goal now.

We had some good eats at a pub out in the country. Rewarded ourselves after our ride with some lamb burgers, some pints of dark ale, and a wee bit of apple crumble at the end of it all.

And now, he’s outside scrubbing down the BBQ and getting it ready for a good and full season of grilling, which for us, starts tomorrow.

In this part of the world, we’re getting an early start to spring this year, and I hope that everyone took advantage of this beauty day too. We deserve it.

    We also opened up our balcony door and let the warm air flow through. We didn’t get out today to enjoy the warm weather, instead we did our taxes and just took it easy. It would have been nice to have walked along Port Credit or downtown Oakville but nothing would be open.

    For sure tomorrow we are getting out and hopefully the weather will also be nice.
