what a lovely march day!

it's warm again. it's been warm for a few days now. it's amazing how quickly i get used to the idea that it's summer. i'm sure at some point, seasonal weather will return, and it'll be quite the shock. but not any time in the immediate future!! the forecast is for the 60s and 70s all week, with perhaps some 50s returning for friday. but seeing as they were forecasting 50s for today even yesterday, and we wound up in the mid-60s, what do they know. in this crazy, post-global warming world, all the old models are useless.

of course you won't be surprised to hear that i've started tomato, lettuce, and sunflower seedlings. outside, the tulips i put in last fall are coming up, and so are the tiger lilies and that purple flower on the side of the patio against the house. since we're digging up the patio soon to put in a concrete one, i'm slowly trying to transplant them. hopefully they survive transplantation! i'm putting them around the trees in the island in the middle of the driveway, and a few more along one side, where the well is. i hope they take there, because they're pretty flowers and nice greenery. cross your fingers for them!

so, the ladies of the halter house got quite a treat this weekend. PBS showed a performance of the phantom of the opera! it started at 7:00 pm on saturday and ran until 10:30. nina did NOT want to quit watching even though she was exhausted. fortunately, it was supermom to the rescue! i looked ahead in the guide, and saw that it was playing again at 1:00 pm on sunday. so, we were able to pick up right where we left off. even though it was 70 degrees and endlessly wonderful outside, we were in the house at 2:30 on the dot to watch. such a gorgeous performance! nina loved that the phantom was much creepier than the film version, but she says she preferred the long-haired raoul from the film. she liked both christines equally. i love it! poor nick is just going to have to get used to seeing more musicals. but which one next... annie? west side story? the sound of music again? mary poppins?!!!! i'm in heaven!
