some of us require very little encouragment

Forty-two degrees is plenty warm for line drying laundry,


or growing through layers of mulch.


Robins and crocuses are never wrong.
You can guess how good that laundry smelled when I folded it last night.

  1. Wow, I'm impressed! I haven't ventured outside with my laundry quite yet.

  2. I love that you are out hanging your laundry to dry in the snow.

  3. 42 degrees is actually quite balmy. :-)

  4. Very nice! No crocuses and robins op here yet. But the ice fishing shacks are gone and the load limits are up. To me, that means spring is a-coming!

  5. I haven't seen any Robins yet. Just lots of bunnies in my yard.

  6. Poppies and buds in the decorative pear trees compete with daffodils for attention here in Northern California’s Spring. Waterfalls pop out of crevasses up and down the rock faces.

  7. The Pteradactyls (blue herons) are back nesting in their tree outside of KHS. It's a surer sign of spring in the Valley than either crocuses and robins. The excitement amongst the students on Tuesday, once the Pteradactyls were noticed, was palpable. :)

    Added bonus? I can see the Pteradactyl tree from my classroom window. Springtime bliss.

  8. Ooh, I bet is did smell good!

    I took the kids to the park for playgroup today, and you can almost feel summer coming on -- that March sun is HOT.

    I do so miss a good New England spring. There isn't another place I've been where spring is quite as green or welcome.

  9. Before I spent a week in Erie in February, I would have bet that I wouldn't walk outside in 42 degree weather, let alone hang laundry--now I might walk outside, but I probably still wouldn't hang laundry!

  10. And it's warmer today!! I turned off the heat and opened a window. I don't know how long I'll last, but it smells sooooo good.

  11. Not a fan of the laundry hung outside smell. Mostly because the 'country air' round these parts has hints of pig or mega farm. Ewwww.
