this weekend, i smelled summer in the air for the first time. the skies were a deep blue, and the air was a very lovely 65+. i'd never noticed before that summer has a smell in the air that distinguishes it from spring (and autumn), but it does. i don't know how to explain it, except that it's a warm smell, and not light and breezy like spring, but deeper. i don't know... have you ever noticed how summer smells?
april second. it's crazy how fast this year has gone by already. although i said that last year too. time just seems to fly, which is okay with me, because it means that stuff is happening and i'm not bored.
i also made a lemon cake (and a poppy seed one) this weekend, and it just screamed spring! lemon is what spring is all about anyway, isn't it? for some reason i have always considered lemon like springs flavor, or something, so it made me happy.
i only have three more classroom classes for drivers ed, (although i have five drives to complete as well) and i still can't believe that i'm learning to drive. it's been fun and terrifying too, being in control of a vehicle on the road, doing it all by myself. i only scare my mom once a week or so, so it's all good. :) let’s just say that if there had been a car right next to me on the freeway yesterday, I would have crashed into him, but there wasn't, so i didn't. :) and i didn't run into that post head on, just with the side of our van, so that's a little better, right?
i've decided to grow my hair out again , after debating with myself for a while about cutting it, and as a result have been trying to learn some new hairstyles. i've only mastered one so far, but am excited to start learning more. i found a sight that has 60+ hairstyles for my length of hair (or a little longer) and i love almost all of them. :)
