A few years ago we had a friend who passed away much too soon. He was married to one of my friends that I grew up with and have stayed in contact with all these years. One of his sayings was: "Don't waste the day". I think of that often when I get a day like today. I was offered the day off since we weren't too busy. The last few weeks have been very hectic at work and I was glad to have this time off. I always feel like I should jam pack the day with tons of things so I don't feel like I wasted it away. So I hit the ground running...after sleeping in a bit of course...and cleaned bathrooms, washed floors, laundered sheets, cleaned up in general and then I headed for the outdoors. It was a lovely day. 60de., and sunny. But we are about a month behind this year as far as the Spring season goes.
