Outpost Caretakers Week 29 ~ Restless

March 30, 2012 | 573 Views

Maybe we are feeling a bit antsy due to the fact that the weather has gotten warmer ( about time) and we want to get out and traipse through the forest and do some more exploring by water but those April showers that bring May flowers have arrived here a week early in full force. I know we could suit up in a full set of foul weather gear and I have on occasion when I just have to get out and at least walk the beach but we’d rather do it in the sunshine.

Maybe we’re feeling fidgety because we’ve gone through all our movies and have now resorted to watching older ones. This week we have been having a “Bond” marathon, from

“Dr. No” to “ Quantum of Solace”. I have an urge for a martini.

Maybe we’re feeling a bit discontent because the the repertoire of the cook has become uninspired. What we wouldn’t give for some chinese take-out, an extra large pizza with the works or even a spicy chicken sandwich and a frosty from Wendy’s. I wonder if the office would mind the delivery charge?

Maybe we’re feeling anxious as the end of our 9 month stint at the OP is in sight. More often we are talking and making plans of what we want to do this summer and just becoming reacquainted with civilization has us a bit giddy.

This uneasiness has even crept into my sleep. Waking up at 4 am is not my normal internal clock but wide awake I am. Having come prepared this year for being able to roam around in the dark I don my little headlamp, grab my eReader and head into the kitchen to make a cup of tea, little to early to be turning the genny on just yet so I can’t make coffee. I read for a couple of hours than find myself finally drifting off to sleep on the very comfy couch in the living room.

Restlessness is not without it’s upside. Jobs that I would tackle a month from now in preparation for the incoming crew are getting my attention, this way when the fabulous weather does arrive I will be spending all of my time out doors.

This doesn’t look like a rainy day…..give it a minute…… OK an hour.

By the time we have finished our morning coffees, plans for the day have changed.

The smell of spring in the air has Fat Cat venturing out for the first time this year but she will not wander any further than the doormat for she’s a ‘fair weather’ feline.

Other things are also making an appearance. The first of these bugs was found on Mike’s shoulder, YIKES!!! and several others have had their lives cut short while scurrying across the carpet right in front of us.

Even when the sun does shine for brief moments the rains never stop.

Almost temping enough to dip a toe in.

Quite often the day will end as beautiful as it began.

Till next week

Heather & Mike
