LOOK!!!! Flowers! Signs of life! Spring!!!
I’m trying not to get my hopes up that this could actually mean that Spring is really going to happen. With such a late start to our winter I was (am) sure that it would last until May. But as I was getting the mail today I saw these sweet little flowers and now I’m starting to wonder! (P.S. Flower lovin’ folks, what are these? I’m horticulturally illiterate.)
It’s been really lovely outside. Warm (well, 50 degrees) and sunny. I’m in love with the light around here. It’s amazing. I’ve been able to open my sunroom door and let all that beautiful light flood my kitchen and keep it warm too. My toes have been warm. For the first time in MONTHS, my toes have been warm. I’ve been hiding them in two layers of socks and big comfy slippers. I’ve had a sweater on since we moved in. I love this old drafty house, but it is chilly! I’m not ready to break out sandals yet, but I am thoroughly enjoying the weather!
Speaking of Spring, my little munchkin will be turning 5 years old on the first day of Spring. *sniff* Where did those first years go? I am really excited for his birthday party, though! He’s having a pirate party, Arg Matey!
I hope you’re spotting signs of Spring as well!
