I Love Living In the Future!

Today, my husband and I sat on our deck, each with our laptops, and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine.  We were having a prematurely warm Spring-like day.  I mean it was 78 degrees….in February!  We took advantage and putzed around a bit in the vegetable garden.   I have BIG plans for that garden this year.  Still too early to do anything but pour over the seed catalogs and dream a bit.  But I got my fingernails nice and dirty transplanting my lemon tree into a bigger pot.  If  doing that doesn’t get me some lemons this year, then I am going to give up.  I have been nursing this dwarf lemon tree for more than two years now and it barely has any leaves and only two branches let alone any lemons.

Anyway…..let me get back to the topic at hand which is… I LOVE living in the future!   As we sat on our sunny deck in North Carolina on a Sunday afternoon in February, my husband connected his I-Phone to our stereo and we listened to live radio out of Australia!  It was already Monday there.  And here we were on a Sunday afternoon,  in our backyard,  listening live  to tomorrow’s early morning traffic and weather report in Sydney, Australia.  :)

A few hours later, my husband and son left to go hit some tennis balls and before they left,  my sweet husband changed the radio station to a station out of Paris, France.  So as I sit here  blogging,  I am listening live to a radio broadcast out of Paris.  Cherie FM 91.3.     C’est incroyable!!!

It is incredible when you think about it, Lisa! I'm more envious of your 78 degrees though! : )

I like French music. I can't understand one word of it, but I find it soothing so, heck... why not!

Wow, 78 degrees. We had snow all day and will have freezing rain tonight. Enjoy your gorgeous weather.

I envy your weather, today we have had a foot and half of snow and the temperature is -15'Celsius, sorry don't remember what that is in fahrenheit. Lucky you! Thanks for sharing Spring.

Wow-that is totally cool. Never even thought of doing that but I want to now. What a great day :)

There is an App called Tune In Radio that let's you do this. It works on the I-Phone, Blackberry, and the Android. Just thought I would put that out there!

78 degrees?? That's what we typically get here in So Cal this time of year but instead we had snow warnings and temps that fell to 25 degrees. It's a shock to my system.

I wish I could give you some advice on the lemon tree but I do not have a green thumb at all. The leaves look really healthy though.

I love it that you can listen to a channel in Paris! So perfect for you.
