~I'm Feeling Bright~

I just looked at my thermostat outside and it is reading 69 degrees.
That makes me feel happy.
I have an extra skip in my step.
I didn't even wear a coat today.
I think I am smiling more.
I think other people are smiling more.
I noticed my bulbs coming up out of the ground.
When I dropped Bradley off at school this morning there was a group of boys playing football.
I can have my front door open without worrying about the heating the great outdoors.
I'm actually sitting outside right now watching my 17 year old race my 5 year old on bikes.
I love Chicago's winters.
They never cease to amaze me.

This just reminds me of what it feels like outside....BRIGHT!!!

I know these are right around the corner!

I actually think these last few days may actually help me make it through this winter.
I always have to remind myself that I will ALWAYS have just what I need...even before I know what that is.

~Happy Spring day to all...even if it is only February~

We're STILL waiting for winter to hit here in Maryland. We have not had one significant snow fall this year and we're all feeling ripped off! I lived in Chicago one winter so I know by now you're ready for it to be over; but I'm still waiting for it here!

I mentioned you in my post today!

Oh, my, you are lucky there! We still have about two months of winter left here in Montreal. It really starts to get to be a drag about now - I can tell you it sure makes people grumpy. Do enjoy your great weather, you lucky gal!

Tara said...

I think we are all ready for spring. I may need to go out today and get myself some tulips! Yellow or red are my favorites.

Hey Maisy:

Thanks for giving spring a little push! I have had enough winter for 2 years. You should post about the fish :(

I live in Buffalo, NY--so i hear ya on the amazement of these winters! It's so strange how we can get a 50 degree day and then we are back in the 20s!

Cute blog! I found it through my friend Sarah (prayerfuldrivenlife).

Stay warm!
