Spring is in the Air

What is the bright orange-orb in the eastern skies this morning? Does it for tell a spring-like day ahead of us? My bones begin to warm at even the thought of winter turning to spring.

I sent my kindergartner to school today just *knowing* he will have outdoor recess. (They stick to indoor recess in the gym when the weather is below freezing.) I love to imagine the sights and sounds of the playground around noon today. I’m sure it will sound quite heavenly as they run out the door straight to the playground soaking up the ‘warmer’ weather.

My preschooler and I will get out today and sweep off the deck; walk around the yard; dream big visions of our vegetable garden. Perhaps, we will talk about what we should plant this year, peas, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers are our norm. We live in suburbia with a small plot for planting. But it’s the *best* garden in the neighborhood if I do say so myself.

So today there will be an extra “spring” in my step and a little more joy in my smile.

By the way, don’t forget to change your clocks this Sunday! Spring Ahead … and enjoy the days sunshine longer into the evening.
