The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men,
Gang aft agley (Robert Burns)
I did everything right, for once. It’s Cherry Blossom time here in the DC area, and I wanted to photograph it. I was there a few days ago, scoping the place out, and wanted to go again sans Oliver to concentrate on getting some good photos.
Last night I charged my camera battery. I unloaded all photos that were on my memory card. I packed my camera bag. I got a diaper bag ready so that I’d be prepared with Hazel. I checked the weather forecast. Conner and I planned out dropping Oliver off in the morning.
This morning we woke up on time. Conner took Oliver to his nanny’s while I pumped some milk, ate breakfast, and got ready to go. I checked the weather online again. It was forecast to be overcast–which was what I wanted. I think that foliage really pops with the gray background. Plus, if it’s overcast the sun doesn’t give me migraines. I looked out the window, and it wasn’t raining.
I strapped Hazel on, gathered all the stuff I’d need, and Conner and I went outside to go catch the train.
Heavy drizzle. Too heavy to soldier on and pretend that my daughter wouldn’t get soaking wet in her moby wrap in the 45* weather.
Now I’m back inside, blogging about the photos that I didn’t get. I guess tomorrow’s another day!
