High school graduation and black peppered cashews

This thrills me.

I'm reading The Places That Scare You and am really enjoying it. Thanks Liz and B for mentioning it.

The temperature have been in the 50's the last couple of days. Awesome. All of the snow melted as of today. I went for a run along the canal this afternoon for the first time since it got cold -sometime in November I think. It was wonderful. I really love the changing of the seasons here in Indiana. I've been buying flowers to have inside my house every week in anticipation of spring. I bought some tulips and hydrangeas this week - the bulbs I'll replant in the spring.

Tried the Black Peppered Cashews from Trader Joes? Highly recommended.

We were hanging in the Carmel High School smoking lounge getting ready to graduate. I didn't smoke but always hung with my buds who did. Remember Chris and Jessica? Two of my best friends in high school. Chris and I still keep in touch. She has twins that are 4 years old.

MC: I see it now. Thanks! Wasn't it funny that the smoking lounge was right outside the gym?! Do you know what ever happened to Jessica?

Neil Roberts' Notes from Here said...

I'm blatantly plugging my site, which has better than 20/20 vision (pardon the pun and the potentially pretentious metaphor --- and no I don't write this same thing to everyone) Look, I'm off to a bad start here so let me just say I would be honored if you would read some of my stuff at: neilroberts.blogspot.com
