It's Melting!!!

We can see grass in our yard!! On Sunday, I excitedly pointed out to the rest of the family that I could see a small section of grass on the edge of the lawn. It's already melted away this much in 2 1/2 days!!

Some other signs of Spring:
  • The sun is shining lots and actually feels warm!
  • Joshua took the kids bikes down from the hooks in the garage ceiling on Friday!
  • There are puddles of dirty water everywhere. (But getting smaller all the time!)
  • I am washing extra loads of wet, muddy clothes. (Hmmm, wonder how that happened...)
  • We're going for walks again!
  • I went out without a jacket this afternoon!
  • The birdies are singing more!
  • Swimming lessons are starting tomorrow.

Now I'm waiting for the grass to green up and the trees to start budding! It won't be long!

It was cold here today in NY! I'm looking for those no jacket warm days to arrive:) I know my kids will be sharing the joy and mud of spring around very soon! Enjoy the warmer days!!

YEAH for you!! We just got your coldfront you sent our way :) Warm weather is soon here! (At least I keep telling myself that!)

I wish I could get excited to see the snow melting ... but it's inevitable that there's going to be more snow before spring truly comes to stay. So I'll hang out on the back deck while I can, relax and barbecue!

Hope all is well
God Bless

You'll be excited (NOT!) to know that more snow fell yesterday, Peggy. Too bad you're away and not able to enjoy it. Relax in the sunshine while you can!!!
