The Promise of Spring
May 4, 2012 2 Comments
One of the many amazing things about Minnesota is that you never know what kind of weather you’re going to wake up to or even have to deal with through out the day. You can be walking around in the sun shiny park and in an hour you may find yourself rushing toward the nearest shelter from the rain. So on Tuesday night we went to bed with a bit of a chill in the air and the next day we ended up in the high 70′s. Today we hit the 80′s. Which begs the question: Is it safe to change out our clothes yet? Seriously. Around here you never know. I think I might just chance it.
I love Spring. It’s my favorite season of the year. The weather slowly begins to warm up (usually), the plants start to bud and the world turns from brown to green. Everything seems brighter somehow and suddenly so much is possible and you can’t help but look forward to your days after the cold and dark of winter.
Every project seems not only something you can take on, but that you can even complete. You start to think of the things you’d like to spend time on if you didn’t have all these other things. And you start to think of ways to make some of those other things go away so you can change your focus.
Ah… the promise of Spring.
This year it’s even better than any other year because of Little Lass. Last year she was so little but this year she’s doing so much more. She is the epitome of what spring time means to me, and I’m looking forward to exploring the season with her.
Of course this also adds another dimension to my project list because she is my main project. There is some much I want to do with her and for her that prioritizing is a necessity. This is going to be harder than it sounds.
What does spring mean to you?
