You guys! Spring is here! Well, according to the calendar, it is. According to the weather, it’s bipolar and undecided. Here in North Carolina, we have seen 80 degree weather and 40 degree weather, within 24 hours. We have had a few 70+ degree days and might be seeing some snow on Saturday. I mean, really. The hardest part of this for me is that I LOVE to be outside. I would live outside if it was possible and there was a bathroom.
I have put my little garden seeds into the tiny pots, filled them with dirt, and have been watering them. In return, I’m starting to see some adorable little sprouts of green beans, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, and peas. BUT, if it freezes again, all of that will be for naught. I will be sad because I’m ready for Mother Nature to pull it together and let go of Winter already. He’s tired. He wants a rest. He wants to go off to his hibernation while his sisters Spring and Summer have their fun. And I 100% support that. Get out of here already!
But, with Spring comes pollen. That lovely greenish-yellow that covers our cars if they’re outside for more than 20 seconds. That beautiful layer of tree crap that covers our yards and driveways in an attempt to create new beautiful, giant oaks and maples and firs. Yeah, I’m talking about that junk that makes your eyes run, your nose snot and your entire body sneeze constantly until you finally get some blessed rain. Yeah, pollen. My nemesis.
I don’t care though. I want Spring. I want that lovely, perfect temperature where you can run or dig or paint without sweating non-stop. I want to open all my windows and get the lovely, fresh breeze that makes you take a deep breath and feel fantastic. I want that. Can we make that happen already, dear Mother Nature? Can we just relax and walk Old Man Winter into his comfy place? It would be such a treat and we would all really appreciate it.
What plans do you have for Spring? Will you be working on your house? yard? your sleep? Do you have plans? Are you a procrastinator? How does that work for you? Tell me below – in the comments. I’d love to chat.
