Sure Signs of Spring

Alright, so I may be jumping the gun - who knows, we could get a snowstorm next week - but all this Springy weather is positively thrilling me!!

My winter coat has been retired, and I'm now back into my light-weight MVT jacket, which somehow just makes me feel skinnier. With the days lasting longer, I'm now able to take my walk after supper, and I don't even mind that I have to do a little puddle-jumping (or swimming - like in the massive lake in front of my cousin Scott's house, which goes completely across Stanton Road). I'm not even going to complain about the potholes throughout town and especially here on the 5th Concession, where you could sometimes imagine you're riding a really bumpy rollercoaster. Potholes=Spring! YAY!!!

More signs of Spring: Word on the street is Mae is opening the chipstand tomorrow. The Senators are 2 weeks away from their 10th consecutive playoff berth. I hear that there's been a gang down at the river getting the Ferries ready to set sail someday soon. Easter is next weekend. The Flying Elbows Tourney is this weekend. There's a huge bump at the end of our driveway where the culvert is falling in. The snow is pretty much melted everywhere. The phone here at MVT is ringing more and more. Todd's calling me twice as much as he did all winter long. Somewhere, I'm sure baby animals are being born and any day now people will be reporting that they've seen the first robin. Sara even told me she's got flowers growing at home.

Everybody's smiling more. Everybody's happy. Everbody's ready.

It's SPRING!! :)

There are robins in Otter Lake so I'm sure you have them down in Quyon. My mom saw one back in February when it flew in front of her car. Yesterday I saw my first, he was singing in a tree in my yard. I also had my spring jacket out, but I exchanged it this morning for my winter one. The wind is cold. I wish I could look at my flower bed to see if anything is greening out, but it is still covered in snow. As long as it stays sunny it should melt off before too long.

Well Jill that was a very happy blog. I absolutely loved it because I could totally relate to the pot holes, have you taken a trip down the Westbrook road yet, it's horrendous, but as soon as it dries, they can grade.

My lane way is drying up nicely except for the lakes close to my house. But they will be gone soon enough as long as the sunny sun sun comes out to suck it up during the day.

I wore my sunglasses for the last 1/2 of my drive in this morning, now that's a sure sign of spring (or that I was a little late on the get go this morning) either way! Sunglasses!

I am excited to start riding my bike. I will need Wayne to get it out of the "shed" and WD-40'er up so she's good and smooth riding for when I get up and go. Lets hope the dogs are chained when I decide to start or there may be a war.
