Something in today’s gorgeous weather with the bright sunshine enveloping us in its warm embrace sent me a sudden jolt of energy, as if I could take on the entire world. Well, that is an exaggeration, but it is interesting to note how one can so suddenly and easily be energized to accomplish that which had been almost impossible not long ago. This achievement consisted in preparing another batch of skin cream that I had been putting off for such a long time. There always were excuses, but today it became a simple challenge to be quickly overcome. An important forecast was made today, informing us that spring is just around the corner, possibly in a couple of weeks, at least here in this part of British Columbia. Let us hope that it will prove to be accurate, even though this spell of cold weather has not been all that bad.
