Spring?

My alarm went off at the regular time this morning. (That would be 3:30. AM. Don't ask.) I did all my morning things, stumbled into the meditation room about 4:20, and settled for prayer. Next thing I know, it's 4:45 and an odd sound has startled me. I do a quick assessment and figure out the sound is definitely not in the house. It must be outside.

So I focus in on this sound. It's uncommon, but familiar. I slowly realize it's birds. Birds singing. Birds! Singing! Outside! At 4:45 in the morning there were birds singing outside! Can you believe it?!

When I left for work, I only needed a jacket. Not a coat. A jacket. And I didn't even have to wear that when I left work this afternoon!

I wore a cotton shirt today. Not a turtleneck sweater. A cotton shirt. With a v-neck, even!

The capri pants I ordered (Because my old ones don't fit any more. Shut up.) came today. Do you know when you wear capri pants? When it's warm!

I went for a walk after work. Outside. With no jacket. Just my cotton v-neck shirt. And I wasn't cold!

Do you know what I saw when on my walk? Buds! On the trees! For real!

I could sooooo get used to this......
