I opened the bedroom window last night, the house had warmed up consiserably, so cooler air was needed.
This morning dawned with the sound of birds singing.
Cardinals flitting around the trees and shrubs.
And . . . .
What is that smell?
I know it sounds crazy and I know it is not! But it feels like it, and smells like it and even at 11:00 in the morning, as I iron by the open window, the birds are singing as if spring is on its way! Can you imagine? I mean, it is, but not in December/January.
As the day continues to warm to the 80's, I am actually not bemoaning the lack of snow or cold. But savoring the breeze and the the sounds, cuz the cold is coming back!
May all of you, buried in snow, have a cuddly, warm inside day!
P.S. This is also the first Saturday that I have been off AND at home in a very long time. This feels great!
