After a day spent inside cleaning I ventured down to the nearby shopping/restaurant village to pick up a little Indian food for dinner. The weather was grand; there was a slight chill in the air but it was the kind of night that definitely made me believe that true spring was around the corner.
I was shocked at the number of people who were out. Really the village of Shirlington was bursting with people. Restaurants were packed full--waiting customers spilled out onto the sidewalk in front of the Mexican restaurant.

No matter, I'm back at home now and happy about that. I'll watch a little basketball and finish up a few small cleaning projects.
