spring fling

Today I am packing away clothing made of corduroy or wool, as well as clothing that has a turtleneck. I am also shoving winter coats into crates and then shoving those crates into basement corners.

It's not necessarily warm, and I could wind up wishing I still had some of those things within easy reach.

But I don't care.

Spring begins today.

Although it's still chilly, I want jackets, and cotton skirts, and t-shirts with cardigans, and mary janes with no tights.

Although my knees still ache and the wind still has a bite, I'm running with a little more pep, and a smile on my face, and faaaaar fewer layers.

Although I have a crazy, full, busy, most likely tiring week ahead, I can see spring break on the horizon.

I am ready for spring.

Ready for sunshine

Ready for outside.

Ready for a bicycle and my legs to be my main modes of transportation.

Ready for open windows.

Ready for fresh air.

Spring, I am so glad you're here.

You and me both!! Except I haven't packed anything away yet. The only constructive things I did today were zumba, laundry and cooking dinner.

I can't wait until I can do all those things too!! (But we're supposed to get a blizzard tomorrow.)

Spring showed up for us with snow and blustery winds and is making up for the fact that January was in the 60s.
