Dare I speak the word that is... spring?

If I jinx it by doing this then so be it, but gosh it feels like spring :)

I wake up in the morning and the sun is starting to poke its head in the sky as I make my breakfast. I'm no longer walking home in the pitch black. No more do my pajamas consist of flannel layered over a t-shirt, socks and topped with a hooded sweatshirt, and I am no longer sleeping curled up in a tight little ball shivering. I even reduced the number of hours the boiler is on for.

I can hear the birds twittering out my bedroom window as I type this.

Yes I think spring is just around the corner.

Shh! Shh! Shh! C, my dear, don't SAY IT. It will run away and HIDE AGAIN.

It was 11° ALL DAY practically yesterday. I walked home from the chiropractor CARRYING MY COAT. It has not precipitated on me in TWO DAYS (Well, it probably precipitated on somebody, but *I* was wisely inside), and I got to wear my t-strap shoes WITHOUT WOOLEN SOCKS.

But this is all incidental. It means nothing. It could snow this afternoon. Nothing to do with the S-word...

That's great news. In my neck of the woods Winter is scratching and clawing to stick around as long as it can. It's doing a good job of it too.

Shh! Don't scare it away!

If it snows now, I'm blaming you!

Having said that, the snowdrops here are lovely. :-)

Hooray! If it's real, and doesn't turn to nastiness. If it does ... we ... don't know where you live. Darn.
