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!! :)
