First Signs of Spring
I could still see my breath this morning, but as I stepped outside for a brief moment during my lunch hour I noticed a dramatic change in the climate. Being from the arctic tundra better known as the city of Chicago, any day with a hint of brighter light and temperature above 40 is considered a Godsend!
The fact that the little digital reading temperature in my car read 60 called for an instant - "woo hoo". With that I also managed to locate a convenient place to grab a Chocolate milkshake to celebrate the first day of Spring! (Also eating soup every day for lunch calls for a chocolate moment now and then!)
The little robins with the plump red breasts are appearing, and the Pup has certainly noticed them in the early morning. The buds on the flowers also look just about ready to pop open.
This really is my favorite time of year. There's something about the newness of Spring, the rejoicing, and the hope out of every planting, bird song, and bud that all is made new again and all is alive.
I'm on the look out for more signs~
