and I made Team Testosterone take baths last night! Their bare feet were dirty and gritty from playing outside. What an amazing spring! Our neighbors came back for a little visit, balls got bounced and tossed, the ATV buzzed around the trails, I even dragged a rake across a chunk of our yard. It's mid-March!
In honor of 3-14 (Pi day) I made a S'more Pie to great acclaim. The rest of my campaign signs found homes. I cleaned the oven, scrubbed out the wastebaskets, hung out more bedding. Strolling around the yard I see blooming crocus, tips of daffodils and the cupped leaves of tulips. Robins are racing to build nests and the red-winged blackbirds are busy glaring at us.
And there's even more of this grand weather in the forecast. I kept a window cracked to hear the birds this morning. No more snowpants. No more snow shovels. Baseball season begins next week and I've got almost half of my spring cleaning list crossed off. I'm wearing short sleeves and no socks--bare feet since Sunday!
March Madness indeed.
Spill it, reader. Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods?
