Yesterday I woke up and saw this moon from my back door. With temps in the 40's and sunshine all day, it had the same effect on me as a handful of No-Doze. I cleaned bathrooms, filed papers, sorted piles and put a cubic ton of toys in their proper places! I opened 3 windows and let the fresh air inside. It felt awesome.
Mr. G missed riding his bike and of course he found no better place to ride than this huge puddle in our driveway. By the end of the day he'd soaked through his snow boots, 2 pairs of rubber rain boots and a pair of tennis shoes.
These are foolish times filled with giddiness and anticipation. Mr. G will get Mr. B's old bike with the training wheels replaced. Mr. T will get a new bike and hand Mr. B his old one. I will order seeds from catalogs (porn for gardeners) with undaunted optimism (I never met a tomato I could grow well, but every winter I think I can do it). I'm making my spring cleaning list and signing my sons up for baseball teams and cooking class.
There is Spring in my step once again.
