Spring Tease

Posted by Analyse at 9:59 PM

Monday, April 28, 2008

A teaser. We had a taste of spring this weekend. Sunny at 23°C. The lawn mowers around the neighborhood were out Friday night perfuming the atmosphere with this cool spring breeze. Plants and trees, despite the sudden decrease in temperature early April were displaying their flowers and leaves with pride.

Days like these don't pass unnoticed. We had our weekend fully booked. We invited some friends over for lunch Saturday afternoon.

Louna enjoying the afternoon sun with new-found friend lil K.

Frenchguy did a 10-km run Sunday morning.

Louna waiting for her Papa then showing the flowers she picked afterwards.

Then we attended a birthday party in the afternoon.
Louna learning to blow her new toy.

Today. Inside my office. Looking outside my window. Gray and raining outside. 12°C. End of Spring.

So before I get depressed with this uncomprehensible Dijon weather, I'll go pack my stuffs and enjoy the Italian sun this weekend. Leaving on Thursday morning. On the itinerary: picnic at the park viewing the Leaning Tower of Pisa before we indulge ourselves with arts and culture (and pastas, and gelatos, and limoncillos (with moderation, svp..) in Florence and Rome. We will end our escapade enjoying rural life under the Tuscan sun.

PS: Mahirap ng ma-depress si buntis.

Gem, lol. natakot yata sa kin yung weather, maaraw ulit.. pero medyo malamig pa din, but at least it's not raining.

raqgold said...

ScroochChronicles said...

Ay ang taray ni buntis...kailangan pumunta ng Italy para lang di ma-depress :)

Louna is growing up looking more like you :D

haze said...

I am glad to know that you had a great weather in Dijon and you can enjoy it outside with friends!

Italy will be my next destination :D! I really want to see Venice and Rome ! Have fun and Happy vacation !

Analyse said...

Raqgold, lol.

Scrooch, ibig sabihin e gumaganda tulad ko? lol.

Haze, paminsan minsan lang yan so dapat talaga sulitin hehe..

those are lovely places, you wont regret it. sobrang dami lang lagi ng tourists that's why we've chosen to visit in May.

kat said...

wow...i totally envy your jet-set lifestyle! i love that you can all go and travel to such wonderful places with louna. enjoy your italian jaunt!

how is the pregnancy going? you know i had an awesome dream about you the other night. i'll have to email it to you one of these days!

Rhada said...

hay naku, walang ipinag-iba sa weather namin dito, kakainis! :-) Pero di bale, we are heading down South tomorrow morning (Georgia & Florida) kaya makakatikim na naman ng init.

Take care sa byahe!!!

lovelyn said...

Hopefully the weather gets better here. It rained all day after a "spring tease" too. Have fun on that Italian trip! Lots of tourists 'na', expect a crowded Rome since its Labor day and and also a weekend.

Btw, we had our gelatos 2 Sundays ago and how it felt summer is just around.

kala said...

i think it's because julien and i arrived in france, ana. dont worry, aalis na rin kami in 2 weeks. i think isa sa amin may balat sa pwet, kahit san kami mapunta, nag iiba ang weather!

have a good long weekend.

Analyse said...

Kat, that's one of the advantages in living in Europe. A lot of nice EU capitals are within reach.. plus we've got a lot of paid leave, so ano pa nga ba, lol.

I'm interested to know the details of that dream.. :)

Rhada, yohooo! so will get the most tan? I checked Italy weather, and it will be sunny and averaging at 23°C during our stay there, great!

Lovelyn, at least di gaanong mainit compared to going there on june - august.. as in summer vacation! anyways, we will not stay 100% inside the city, the second week will be spent sa tuscany region - probinsya life naman.

gelatos - kahit anong weather, sarap pa din yan lol.

Kala, so you're the culprit. Next time, I will ask the customs to stop you at the airport, lol. Bawal ang me balat sa pwet hehehe..

Soy said...

Maimai said...

I love the father and daughter photo. How was Italy? Oo nga, ang taray ni buntis, sa Italy pa gustong magliwaliw.

Leah said...

I think we have the same kind of weather. It does tease us. Summer like one day and very springy (raining) the next.

Anyway, it is more fun than winter and definitely more time to do outdoor activities.

btw, i tagged you here Hope you can participate.
