It may look like winter outside, but inside I’m fully embracing spring. My Easter decorations are up, I have sparkly eggs in my table centerpiece and a vase of pink tulips in the living room. Now if I could just get some warm weather and sunshine that would be great, preferably before Sunday since I bought a new dress for Easter.
St. Patrick’s Day has taken over. I love all of the holidays leading up to spring. Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, St. Patricks Day and especially Easter, which is really when spring has sprung. I’m ready for flip flops and dresses. I’m over sweaters and jeans. It’s time for spring; enough of winter already.
Spring has officially sprung! Hope all the days of the season are as nice as the first–80 degrees and sunny.
March is here! Today was the perfect start to the month that brings us spring. It was bright, sunny and warm. Plus, it has been staying light longer which is always nice since it really isn’t very fun to get out of work when it’s already dark out. I love spring. I’m so excited that it’s almost here.
Today it was 74 degrees. In February. I can live with that even though the heat caused some storms and a brief tornado watch. I guess with the good comes the bad. You can have unusually warm weather, but it may not end well. Luckily I don’t think anyone was hurt or any damage caused. The wind also picked up and it cooled down to somewhere in the 60s and its supposed to be even cooler tomorrow, but I think today proved that spring is on its way.
Every morning when I go to get in my card it’s decorated with yellow leaves. It seems like the trees just started turning this week, but as soon as the leaves change they fall. I guess it’s because of all the rain. The yellow leaves are pretty though. It’s just too bad they couldn’t stay on the tree a little longer.
It’s official. Winter is on its way. This is why I don’t love fall. Even with all the festivals, hayrides, pumpkins, haunted houses and other seasonal activities, fall always leads to winter. When I got out of my meeting tonight at two minutes to eight, I came out to a dark car in a dark parking lot. At last month’s meeting, I came out to the sun setting and a still lit parking lot. And, it’s only going to get worse from here. Soon, it’ll be dark before I get home from work every night. Lame. How long is it to spring again?
I feel like I went away in summer and came back to fall. Yesterday I was sweating in Charleston and now today it’s cooler and rainy. Apparently it has been raining off and on here for days. I’m glad I was able to trade that for sun and warmth. And fall isn’t that bad. There’s the pumpkin patch and Howl-O-Scream. The real thing I don’t like about fall is that it leads to winter. I’m not much on cold weather. At least winter brings spring which leads to summer. See how that works?
All it did today was rain. All it’s supposed to do tomorrow is rain. Yuck. I realize yesterday was Labor Day, but come on. Technically, summer doesn’t end until Sept. 21 when fall starts. Let’s try to hold off on the 62 degree rainy days please.
