Chirp, chirp, chirp. Do you hear that? It's SPRING, with all its beautiful birds, fabulous flowers, and soft breezes! It's finally here! Can you believe it? I almost thought I wasn't going to make it to spring this year after this harsh winter weather, but we made it my friends, and I couldn't be happier. Yeah, we might have a few more days of bad weather, and it will take a while to reach the steamy temperatures of summer, but it is officially here! I feel like singing...The hills are alive, with the sounds of music...was that out loud? Whoops, so embarrassing. Anyway, I could be dancing in the street. Something. Anything! Just have to celebrate! Soon the color green will reenter our world. Remember green? It used to be the color of the grass, and the leaves on the trees, and plants...oh how I miss green. Such a beautiful color - I hope it returns one day. And remember those days when you could just walk outside with no coat or boots or scarves and hats? Well we are one step closer to those days with the beginning of Spring.
Well, I think it is about time to slip on a light jacket and take a nice leisurely stroll on up to the library. Thinking of starting a garden this year? Why not get the kids involved, and check out some books on planting flowers or vegetables. Birds are flocking back into town, so fly on over and pick up some materials on backyard birding. Can you tell the difference between a black-capped chickadee and a white-breasted nuthatch? I've been studying up, so I can. I know, I am just that smart. And of course, I am sure we will still have our share of rainy spring days, so it might just be a fine idea to get some fantastic crafting or cooking with kids books.
And now it is time for me to get outside and enjoy spring in all its glory!
