The Smell of Spring

Picture for: The Smell of Spring

I woke up this morning to something that I have not seen in weeks; sunshine. It's amazing what a little sunshine will do to your soul. When you get that first scent of spring in the air you really start to see how vivid the colors around you really are.

I grabbed my laptop & camera and rode to my local breakfast joint. For as many times as I have been there, I've never noticed that they served cereal, let alone Trix! I didn't think twice before ordering the largest bowl on the menu. It was actually quite funny to eat cereal. I am not much of a morning person, therefore my breakfast's are usually far and few between. I felt like a kid again, and it was awesome.

Breakfast of champions

After breakfast I rode to my usual coffee shop for a vanilla latte while I watch people go about their daily lives. It's fascinating to just sit and watch people. Rich people, poor people, relaxed people, busy people, soccer moms, hippie girls, crazy peope, even crazier people. I have always found enjoyment in people watching, they amaze me.

A few hours later after much needed relaxation and mindless web surfing, I rode back home and The Dog™ and I went to 10,000 acres park for a few hours. It was good to finally get him out of the new house. He is having a bit of a hard time adjusting to the new digs. While we were their I ran into an absolutely beautiful and funny girl named Jennifer. She is bartending at a nice restaurant downtown for the summer, trying to save enough to go back to medical school. We talked and let the dogs play together (she has 2 golden's) for about an hour. We swapped numbers and are planning on checking out some local music soon.

Well, I am off to get ready for the week. I hope your weekend was filled with laughter and smells of spring.
