We actually had a beautiful blue sky the other day - I noticed it when I was looking out my living room window and realized it could have been a summer day. The gray skies that are so prevalent in the winter can become depressing if we aren't teased into thinking about spring every once in awhile and this was a great reminder that it is indeed around the corner. By the end of February we're ready for a change.
Interestingly enough I don't even mind the occasional snowstorm in March because we know the end is near. This is coming from someone who actually likes winter so I can imagine how the snowbirds among us must be looking forward to the warmer weather. I'm a "season loving" person myself - part of my personality type that loves change I suppose. I get restless when anything stays the same too long and I guess it's a testimony to the kind of man my husband is that I'm still married to him after 34 years. I just can't imagine any change being better than what I already have so I never consider that possibility!
All that said, change is something I crave and spring will be welcome at my house. I'm looking forward to greener grass and fresh flowers and the heat of the sun on my face. Of course, a nice vacation somewhere in Europe would be nice too...but that's another topic for another day...
