Now, Spring

What a gorgeous day -- sunny and warm. This is the day we were waiting for every time ice piled up on backyard branches and slickened up the streets.
What is it about a day like this that makes me forget my to-do list and just head outside? Suddenly I'm thinking of things like breakfast at the picnic table, coffee on the swing, long walks in the evening -- the small pleasures of spring and summer.
Our forsythia bush looks as if it is ready to burst into bloom, and the daffodils along the back fence seem to get taller even while I watch. I know the weather report promises cooler temperatures later in the week, but today -- today it's spring!

I'm wearing flip flops today and loving it. But sadly the Ugg boots have not been packed up yet, due to said weather forecast.

I'm with you mom. I've got a 10 page paper looming that I haven't started, 2 tests, several assignments all on Thursday; yet I'm outside ripping out old ground shrubs to make way for the new bushes; i'm planting grass seed and drinking Coors Light in a lawn chair on my driveway. I'm with you. Spring has sprung.

Janie, I'd have to explain to your dad why I bought another pair of shoes! And John, you could study for those tests while you bask in your lawn chair :) I was out reading on the swing this afternoon!
