Yesterday as I was puttering around the house, trying to breathe through all this stuffiness I happened to look outside. I mean really look outside. Yes, I had looked out several times earlier, but apparently I wasn't paying attention, because after the rain cleared out we were left with a carpet of green punctuated by little white flowers. Overnight, the stark brown winter lawns had been replaced by beautiful green springy ones. How could I have missed it.
OUCH!!! Seriously?? did I already get a bug bite? Is that anyway to start off this season of bliss? That unwanted intruder was quickly dispensed with (okay I had to chase it around like crazy woman for awhile) back into his outside world.
I really couldn't breathe after all of that pseudo exercise so I decided to weed through my photos. (That would be the reason that these photos don't actually have anything to do with what I am saying) I thought it was probably a good idea to let you know that, because you were probably thinking I had been drinking too much cough syrup.
Oh wait, that one actually has open windows. How terribly clever of me. (total fluke)
Isn't it amazing how some green grass and a warm day can lift your spirits. Promising you that there are better things ahead. That soon you will be digging in the warm earth and smelling freshly cut grass. That flowers from your garden will be decorating your table. That sandals and shorts will replace heavy coats and boots. That the cycle of life continues on.
I hope wherever you are that spring is starting to show up at your house, too.
