This long weekend has been grey and rainy and mid-teens during the day, meaning thermostat down but not off. Winds blew last night and today the shed roof is polka-dotted with cherry petals.
Possibly a side effect of warmer temps, or possibly just unpredictable body: my knees are much much happier today than they have been since the fall. Now I remember how I used to get up and go have breakfast straight away, and then go out to the cafe without doing thirty minutes of stretch and strengthen. To counter this, my elbows hate me. Neither warmth nor exercises help there.
