Spring is one of my favorite seasons and it looks like it’s right around the corner! The ground hog was right and I could not be happier. I hope all the snow is now behind us finally. We’ve had 8 or 9 storms and two of those dumped 19 inches each on us. I went shopping Sunday and there were still piles of snow around the parking lot and the ice at the bottom has been there since the day after Christmas. But, the sun is out today and it’s calling my name.
Spring has always been very energizing for me. Whether it’s the sunshine, the smell of flowers and newly cut grass, the cool breeze or a combination of those things, it’s very uplifting. It makes you want to get up and move and get things done. What a relief after being snowed in for months with clouds always hanging over our heads. I’m so glad it’s coming early too because I really have so much to do.
The days will be getting longer. The temperature will be getting warmer. It’s the time to start spring cleaning, mowing the lawn for the first time, gardening, pruning, coloring Easter eggs, hunting for Easter eggs, getting the outdoor furniture ready, take out the grill, BBQ’s, blooming flowers, bees buzzing, birds chirping, April showers, May flowers, Ash Wednesday, Lent, St. Patrick’s day, Mother’s Day, Good Friday, Palm Sunday, and Spring Break for college students.
Allergy season kicks in too. Time to stock up on over-the-counter remedies before the pharmacies run out. Look through your clothes and make room for some new things, then go shopping. Get out your bikes, time to ride in the park. Pack a picnic basket. Plan a trip for summer vacation. Get tickets to a ball game. Make sure the air conditioner is working, there has been many a very hot day in May when you will be glad you did.
Spring is in the air! What are you doing reading this blog? Go out!
