PostHeaderIcon Jenn: Spring is in the Air

It's coming. I knew it would. The first signs are always just so exciting. It starts with a smell - the air has a cleaner, crisper, warmer feeling. The birds begin to sing again. Hundreds of them - singing their own tune, a chorus of different sounds. The dogs want to stay outside instead of taking care of business and running back in. It takes the kids a little longer to walk home from school. The crocuses begin to bloom - yep blooming flowers - the surest sign of all Spring is almost here and I am very ready.

Over the past few weeks, I have read a number of break-ups with old man winter on facebook. It was very funny to read - but very true at the same time. Enough already - enough with the snow and the snow days and the wet snow pants and mittens and boots - and the cold and the dark - enough. I guess he got the message - because when I saw that Crocus yesterday blooming under my deck, I knew Spring was almost here. This is our first Spring in our house. I don't know what the yard will look like or if there are any unexpected surprises waiting for me underground. I did plant some Tulips when we moved in. That's it. I am excited to see what the warm weather brings. I woke up this morning at 6:15 and thought I had overslept - it was bright out - the sun is waking-up a little earlier to keep me company. I don't like waking up in the dark - I am much happier waking up to sun shining on my face, even if it is 6 am. So bring it on Spring - I am ready. Ready to open the windows and even wash them too - ready to go outside and take a walk. I am ready to Spring Clean and put those winter woolies away.

Cara's two cents: I think I may have issues when I read Spring Cleaning and got a little happy...weirdo! I am on the lookout for crocus here too...will let you know when there's a sighting!

I can hardly wait for spring! We got a brief taste of what it would be like a few days ago when the sun was shining and we didn't need to dress in layers! But now it's back to gray skies and rain...ugh!

I'm so jealous you already have Crocuses! I want to see flowers more than anything! I can't wait to have all the snow gone so I can start gardening!

I am so over this cold weather. It's been usually cold here in Tampa, FL. I miss my flip-flops. Bring on Spring! I'm ready for it!

Visiting here from Laugh Until You Cry and so glad I stopped by. :-)
