1. Oi vey...the wind. I love spring in CO, but the wind can be overwhelming at times, especially where we live. It gusted all night long, shaking out doors (and making them rattle). The good news is that with a non-shake roof (finally), it doesn't feel like the house is going to lift off. Still, neither DH nor I slept much at all (sigh).

2. Last night (and evening), I was feeling very irritated, touchy, itchy-in-my-own-skin -- and then, the exhaustion hit. I suspected it was a migraine, and by the time I crawled up to bed, the right side of my hide was throbbing. So I took some Excedrin, and I was able to sleep -- well, until the wind woke me up ;) The good news is that I think the thyroid stuff is helping (as the migraines aren't bad, pain-wise, and they don't seem to last very long). Still, I think it's time for another trip to my acupuncturist.

3. I'm coming to the end of one session of class -- and starting the next. The good news is that I saw a huge improvement (I'm hoping it has something to do with the detailed notes I included with each assignment). Still, I had one student try to write an entire paper about a potato -- and I'm feeling a bit burned out.

4. Scenes from three days ago:







The good news is that all the snow is gone now (and we're expecting close to seventy degrees today). Still, the wind...:)

Hope your weekend is filled with good news and not so much *still*!

Beautiful scenes!
Over here we have warmth temperatures when you're at the sun but when the wind comes is so cold you freeze. And also the windows shake all night grrr.
For me a tea of a lot of relaxing herbs make me sleep. Maybe it can help you too.
I hope still goes away soon!
have a good weekend!

I actually drink Sleepytime Tea...but even it couldn't counteract the wind ;) Have a great weekend, Anabel!

I love that kind of snow, when it clings to each individual blade of grass, so pretty.

It was like a winter wonderland :) (And even better, since it's springy now!)

A paper about a potato? That sort of reminds me of Kristin Nelson's recent post about a query letter in which a man was writing a trilogy about his private parts :)

Beautiful! I believe I love frost more so than snow.

And, 70? In Colorado?! Unfair! We're only at about 40 here today. It's also windy as hell.

Today is a fair bit cooler, but still spring-ish...and the wind's died down (thankfully). I think CO is often warmer than surrounding states (well, not New Mexico, of course, heh).
