SPRING ! ! !
I can't believe that just 2 weeks ago we still had several inches of packed snow on the ground, which took a week of temps in the upper 40's and then a couple days of rain for the snow to disapear. Now that we've reached the 50's for a few days, it's finally feeling like spring.
Everything is waking up and coming out of hiding. People are out taking walks, it's staying light out later, birds are chirping happily, bikes and scooters have emerged from the depths of the storage shed, and our cats have been allowed out again. They're having a blast exploring again.
I love how spring makes everything seem new. It makes me feel victorious for making it through another long winter. The gray, dark, cloudy winter days make the bright spring days seem that much brighter! The darkness has gone, the sun is shining; time for a new season and new possibilities!
