oftentimes, the week after a holiday monday draaaags by at a snail’s pace. not so, this week!
thursday and friday were each eleven hour work days, split up between the store and theOTHERstore. i genuinely don’t mind that type of schedule because with a break in between shifts and/or a switch of locations, it really splits up the day/eve nicely.
first, the spring clothing lines are juuuuust starting to arrive! last week, we received…
now, we just need some SHORTS!
i love when these bright and fresh spring items start arriving – it’s a reminder that march/warmer weather is
around the bay around the corner. [sidenote: around the bay is a big race at the end of march, in hamilton; it also signals the change of seasons!].
second: i was going to be oh-so-smart – > all day thursday, the radio announcers kept reiterating that we were going to have a huge! snow! storm! on friday, with 10-15 cm of snow. so i thought it’d be cool to have a before and after photo of the same scene but with drastically different weather conditions. i snapped this photo on thursday at 5:30 p.m.:
…that scene then looked like this on friday morning at 8 a.m.!
and that was the worst of it! now, the day was not nice, yesterday – in fact by last night, the winds were monstrous gusts – but it was definitely bearable! winter, the clock is running out on you!
what signals the arrival of spring for you? roll up the rim, maybe?!! spring training for baseball? *that smell* in the air??!
