April Fools A Day Early

Well, now I know what April Fools is really all about.  It's about Mother Nature giving you a sweet little taste of Spring and then saying "HAHA, never mind!"  It's snowing today.  A lot of snow.  It's really pretty, but I think I shouldn't go outside at all when it's cold because I'm very stuffed up and having a hard time breathing. :(

I had to go out, though, because I'm volunteering at Bridgerland Literacy, an organization that works with functionally illiterate adults, teaching them how to read in a one-on-one basis.  Right now I'm helping Cari, the Literacy Coordinator, get the tutor training program online so it won't take so much time before she can match up a volunteer tutor with a student.  It's really interesting work, so far, and I get to interact with some great people.

I'm sad that I haven't been able to work in my garden this week, and definitely won't now for the rest of the week, but I'm doing a graphic design project that will be finished next week, and if I get paid promptly, I'll be able to use that money to go buy all my seeds and stuff that I'll need for the been tepee and the herb planter I have my eye on...  :)  That'll be fun!
