Connected to the internet again, thank goodness! Between a long move and some delays scheduling the internet provider's installation visit, I've been largely without internet except at school and at cafes for the better part of ten days now, which is not a state to be desired. Having the internet at the new apartment is what makes it feel as if I'm now fully inhabiting the place.

News from my end:

* I own far, far too much stuff. I don't think about myself as someone who owns much because I try so hard not to make purchases, but I'm just now realizing that I also rarely throw away anything. Ever. The new apartment is larger but with less closet space, which means I need to mend my ways.

* The better half and I have instituted something we're calling "pajama day." The rules are very simple: pick a weekend day and stay in your pajamas all day, no exceptions. It's astonishing how relaxing this is. Once you've settled on this, there's no guilt about doing the grocery shopping or getting out to do something or see someone--you just lounge, for hours.

* Cherry blossoms! Pear tree blossoms! Magnolias! DC is in full bloom this weekend. It's a perfect storm of a weekend: the "peak" has fallen on a weekend--and not only a weekend, but one with beautiful weather (sunny with temps in the 70sF/mid 20sC) and one that falls at the tail end of the spring break for some of the public schools. The metro stops near the famed tidal basin and monuments are so crowded you can hardly move. Once I find my camera cord (*meeep* so many boxes), I'll post some pictures!

* Enjoying the poems posted for (Inter)National Poetry Month by flisters [livejournal.com profile] liseuse, [livejournal.com profile] secretsolitaire, and [livejournal.com profile] musesfool. Happy April, all!

I am much in favor of pyjama day! I maintain that all the best creative work is done in PJs. Something about being focused on indoor activity + really really comfy generates good ideas :-)
