season's first dose of Vitamin D

The sun was out all weekend here in Little Rock, AR and it was fabulously almost HOT! 75-80 degrees all weekend long. The wind gusted occasionally, but for the most part, it was just a steady kiss of air that kept me cool.

This is my favorite time of the year. The very first dose of springtime sunshine and that big shot of Vitamin D. The first week of spring weather makes winter worth suffering through. (Not that we have a 'real' winter, but honestly, there is a reason I don't live any further north. Snow should never stay on the ground for more than a minute.)

I started a new book this weekend and I spent most of my time outside, soaking up the sun and creating brand new teenage angst. (I do love playing God with my characters. Such a power trip.) Yesterday I went to Riverfront Park nestled on the banks of the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock. I sat in a chair, listening to Staind and the water lapping the shore, and wrote. It was a great day.
I felt rejuvenated and refreshed. Like my well had just been refilled after a very long drought. I wouldn't do well in areas with no sun for months at a time...I need my vitamin D!

How was your weekend? Do anything special or fun? Did you refill your well?


  1. My weekend was long and filled with family. I am refilling my well today.

  2. Great weekend! I can't wait to dive into a new project too. :D

    I slept in. Did housework. Did shopping. Read. Ate. Chilled. Not bad!

  3. You are workin that ball cap and sunglass look, girl.

  4. I writered. On my couch. Because of the blizzard outside and all.

  5. It's going to be a while before we here in Ohio can stop taking our Vit D supplements. In the meantime, I'm embracing the snow and heading for a writing retreat at my in-laws house in Jackson. Don't worry, they're not in residence at the moment...

  6. You look rejuvenated! Sounds like a great weekend:)
