It’s almost the time of year I love best in Oregon. (Ok, I’m using “almost” liberally in that sentence – it’s still February and Oliver just told me it’s supposed to snow this week. But, today was sunny and crisp and it really did almost feel like spring.)
My IT band is almost better. I can almost start my full training program for the 50k again. I’m almost through the first quarter at work.
Sometimes, when your hobbies fail you (haven’t had a good idea for a pie in a while either) and the whole world is kind of “blah” outside, “almost” has just enough promise within it to keep me going.
