Cherry blossom season...  
...is my favorite time of year, no question. Man, if I could only bottle that scent. We have a gorgeous tree in our backyard. It's actually crabapple, and has white blossoms, which I like even better than the pink cherry blossoms. It's gorgeous and smells absolutely heavenly. Here's a few pics, two taken from underneath, looking up through the branches, and one showing more of the tree.




In other news, sadly, I'm going to be starting a full-time job in April. I've been self-employed for the last few years and while the flexibility has been amazing, especially with a little one, the money is just not what it needs to be. Also, it's been pretty isolating - I mostly work from home, often in my pj's, and that really does not help my depression. I think I need to be up and about and interacting with other human beings for my mental health. Don't get me wrong, I'm an introvert, but almost no human interaction, and sitting on my butt all day? Not a recipe for a happy Sky.

So wish me luck, guys - I'm hoping that the job will be fun and the people will be nice. I'm going to have a 45 minute train commute each way, so I'm hoping to use some of that time for writing.

What's up with all of you?

And now I'm off to pick up little dude from the babysitter. I'll try to post some new pics of him later.

You're welcome! It does wear down the spirit in a way. More than the heat, though, I miss the beach and nature. There's just corn and soybean fields.

Indeed. You're welcome. Please do.

Oh, and I'm not sure if you're interested since it is a cross-over with Poirot, but I've started a new Jooster story, except it's not J/W yet. Here it is, if you are curious. I'm really enjoying writing it.

Oooh, a poirot crossover sounds amazing! I'll definitely check it out. Thanks for the link. :)
