Spring Ahead

Today is the vernal equinox and I am thrilled to be "springing ahead," just as our clocks did a week ago.  We have had temperatures in the 60s and 70s - 20-plus degrees above the norm, providing us with a real spring for a change, not the overnight change from winter to summer that seems to have been more our pattern in recent years.  I really love the dramatic change of seasons.  In summer, all I want to do is be outside.  In the fall, I begin to "nest," preparing for the next big change, winter.  Then, there is spring -- that sigh of relief that we've managed to survive the harshness of winter and that there is increased light, warmer temperatures and the return of color (especially green) to our landscape.  I walk with a lighter step.  I feel more optimistic.  Everything seems right with the world when it's spring.  So, I celebrate this change in life's rhythm, ready to spring ahead!

Today was a downer , so what do I do ?? I take an aspirin --- just kidding -- I switch over to your blog , and let it take away all the " blood , the mud , and the beer" --- stay with it , Keri --- we need more people like you ---- God Bless --- from Jim Peterson
