I've really been enjoying watching Republic of Doyle - some of it is nostalgia, some of it is how beautifully it's shot, and some of it is just enjoying the characters. The acting and writing have gotten better every week, I think.

Last night's can be summed up for me as "Jody! Hee!" It's been fun, watching the show and recognizing the actors - it seems like anyone at all connected to the arts community on Newfoundland is going to end up on there eventually - but seeing Jody Richardson was cool. It seems to me that I went to a lot of Thomas Trio and the Red Albino concerts back in the early 90s. I thought it was Jody, as soon as he appeared on screen, and then the granny referred to him as the Red Albino, and that confirmed it. Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since the BBQs in his backyard in downtown Toronto, before he went back home to Newfoundland.

And next week they have Victor Garber! Victor Garber!?! How the hell is a little show on the CBC landing someone like Victor Garber in a role?

I love springtime.

I love watching our garden grow. Our snowdrops and bluebells are getting a little taller every day. (apparently, we'll have to move the snowdrops to somewhere with a little more sun for next year, since they're nowhere near blooming yet, and they should be completely out by now.)

I love talking walks in the warm spring air, stopping to talk to the neighbors for the first time in months. And getting all the news - one couple spent a month in the Philippines; another gave birth to twin girls.

I love the way people's moods just brighten, this first week of sunshine. Kids are out in the park, playing, people are out walking their dogs, and everyone says "hi" as they walk by.

And, our lilacs are thisclose to budding. There's something about the growing green that just makes me happy.

Life is good.
