The temperature was near 70 today. Our high lately has been in the low 50′s with quite a bit of rain so this was an unexpected treat.
My family gave me a couple hours of cleaning help this morning. By the time we finished we had the windows open and a taste of Spring running through the house. I swear I wanted to run out and buy a vase of tulips for my kitchen table.
I’m not much of a Spring girl. Autumn is my season – sweaters and wool and boots and scarves. But this year I’m aching for Spring. I’m ready to get out in the garden and plant all the things I hope to can over the Summer. I’m ready to send the kids outside for more than an hour without having to search for gloves or serve hot cocoa upon coming inside. I’m ready to not freeze my ass off on the softball field.
The sun is down now and the temperature has dropped to a non-Spring range. More rain is expected for tomorrow…about the time we head to softball. But I enjoyed my taste today. I’d like another one soon.
