Peeking Spring

Good news from the doctor today, warm shirt-sleeve weather, greenery perking up all around, fresh-faced flowers waking up their sleepy little heads, honking geese in overhead V's, buds on trees and bushes, the sun a little higher in the sky hangs around a tad longer each day, and I am coming out of my wintery hibernation.

I think I'm going to make it.

Yippee!

We won't see that until at LEAST April, sometimes May. It was -35F at my house yesterday morning.

Hi Yi Yi! -35! I think I see why you need coffee!! Perhaps you take baths in it in temps that cold......

Today it's nearly 60, sunshiny, calm. The girls and I went to the symphony without jackets. It's nice. I have to say, I do like the snowy and cold though, too, except that I get so depressed. I guess that's the Californian in me.

You'll be posting about springtime in no time....

Both of our kids are affected by SAD, even though they love winter. I just put a "happy light" bulb in Z's bedroom lamp today. :(

Myself? I get cranky when it stays light 'til 10pm and dawn breaks at 4am. What can I say? I'm a weirdo. ;)

Well, ya know, I am not a big fan of HOT HOT HOT weather, but the late sunlight doesn't bother me. You are entitled to your cranky just as I am. Everyone has something that sets them off. Not a weirdo at all, Tshs, perfectly normal.

A happy light bulb. Good idea. Just the other day when I was at the home improvement store - again - I stood in front of the happy light they had on display. Cassie and Caroline had to pry me away. Pathetic. ; )

We bought SME and hubby a happy light fixture for Christmas for $89. After Christmas I found happy light bulbs, that work in ANY lamp for $8. Story of my life...

Cherie said...

And the story of mine, too. Oh goodie, we're back to things in common again. Whew....

Autumn is beautiful. You're in for a treat, just as we are. Lucky us!
