No, there hasn't been a time warp, but on Saturday for one glorious day it felt like there had been. 

The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the temperature hovered around 72 degrees in the afternoon. 


How wonderful it was to toss boots into the coat closet, snub my nose at a jacket, and head out into pure bliss. 

Kids were out skateboarding and playing basketball in their shorts and tee shirts, and adults were riding around in convertibles with the tops down. 

It's amazing how a rise in the temperature accompanied by sunshine can lift your spirits. 

Yes, this week will see a return to some winter weather, but for one wonderful day it was spring glorious spring. 

March is just around the corner. I don't know about you, but I can't wait.

How is the weather in your neck of the woods?
