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.
How do I feel?: calmcalm

Also, forgot to mention--I love crabapple and cherry blossoms and all manner of flowering things. Too cold here as yet--but I'm looking forward to it when it comes.

Hi honey, and thank you! I really hope you enjoy your time away - a little break can certainly be nice. And it's even nicer to know how valued you are!

And I'm very much hoping to get the effect that you describe - that just being expected to show up, showered and dressed, and having people to chat with over coffee breaks - will really help my mental state. Not to mention, the income will seriously alleviate my financial stress, which I know has been a large part of my depression recently.

I hope cherry blossom season comes soon for you! <3

The right workplace can be really helpful in terms of support and interaction and imposing internal structure to get you going--and I hope you find that.

And I do too! It was nice to see your pictures for an early taste of spring, so thank you for that. :-)
