Groundhogs and Armadillos
I have indeed survived my first week's rehearsal for the sequel to Groundhog Day. Have been rising at 6:15, doing my 12-minute commute in the dark, and flashing my IRS badge at the gate. By day 3, Bill Murray was top-of-mind. That said, it was a great coincidence that we changed the clocks as I returned to "the American scheme," so I still have 4 hours of well-lit play time to enjoy.
I now have a Saturday & Sunday bike group, and yesterday the ride leader yelled, "armadillo up" and indeed, there was one but running too fast for a photo! Honestly, I've heard many cycling warnings before but this was a first! Weekdays I'm doing low mileage on hilly terrain so I can ride with the big boys before I leave here!
Joined an Austin Social Meetup this weekend, too, and my first get together is a Sunday service of gospel music & tacos. That's next week's story! Making my "what I need to do in Austin" list now as I feel like time is already of the essence.

Hey! Is it spring there yet :)? Don't mention my name to Putin!

It was 62 degrees today. Seriously warm for Russia in March.

You are a piece of work, who finds a church service that serves tacos?

Au contraire ... a taco place that serves gospel; stay tuned.

What exactly are you doing at IRS? Did you respond with an "armadillo rhymes w/ grillo" comment? I thought you were being given a Texan nickname. If you find yourself at the Omeltry for breakfast, you'll have to send a photo to Alexis---she still misses Austin.

So glad everything is working out for you. Sounds like fun other than the boring job. Keep blogging. We may never see Austin.
