I was going to write this motivational and inspiring post all about how spring is finally here and how glorious the blue skies and birds chirping are. But I changed my mind.
The blue skies are definitely nice. The birds chirping – though I have an aversion to flying creatures – does make things feel extra-springy. Those are good things.
But if you could only see the mess of paw prints throughout my house you’d understand why I’m only slightly excited about spring.
Oh the muddy paws!
The way my dogs run inside without a care in the world for their blackened soggy paws is endearing. Until you’ve had to mop it up for the sixth time the span of an afternoon.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Kannon and I love Sophie. But let’s rush past this soggy spring weather and right into a nice hot summer, mmmkay?
I should have included a photo here of the muddy paw prints. I’m too quick with a mop I suppose.
On a brief side note about summer-ish things, I hopped on Levi’s new motorbike this afternoon and took it for a spin down the street. It’s got a lot more power than the little 125cc bike I learned on two years ago. And since I had a broken foot last summer and didn’t ride at all I was quite nervous to hop on this bigger and much newer bike. But it’s true what they say, it really is “just like riding a bike”.
Also, my hair is a lot longer now than the last time I rode a bike so it gets whipped around a lot in the wind. I’m going to have to figure out some sort of solution for the helmet/wind hair problem.
Okay, I really should add something here about food, being that this is a food blog after all.
Hmmm. Let’s see. With this warmer weather comes BBQ season and I’ve got some recipes planned for the grill. Oh, and we’re having some visitors coming in the next couple weeks so I’ll have to figure out some new fancy dishes to wow them with. Because I’m a big show-off, obv.
Oh and one final thing. I was asked to be a guest on a podcast earlier this week called The YXE about local people in Saskatoon who are interesting. Later I noticed that the premise of the podcast might actually be about interviewing local nerds. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that, though I am pretty sure I called myself a food-nerd during the interview. In any case, if you’re interested in taking a listen (FYI it’s rather long at 45 minutes, I have to admit) you can download it on iTunes here or hop on over to the site and click to listen.
