Annie and I were observing signs of spring to each other on the way to pick Finn up from scouting this evening....
*ornamental cherry trees are blooming in all their magnificent splendor
*the grocery store asparagus looked crisp...time for an asparagus tart!
*my uncontrollable urge to clean everything, paint everything, and pull all the weeds
*purple peony shoots emerging from the soil
*the house was hot this evening, so we're leaving windows open for cool night air
*the heady scent of hyacinth everywhere
*my favorite pink linen trousers
*we're getting spring chickens (ha) in a few weeks
*today during our picnic I felt a warm breeze...as opposed to all the cold ones we've felt for months
*the final four is this weekend...and I will be cheering for the Gamecocks!
*and finally, I pulled a tick off poor Annie's head this afternoon. At the dollar store. I'm so glad I was running my fingers through her hair while she was looking at the toys! And I'm also so glad that I was able to pull it off with my bare hands and not leave any gross tick parts on her little head. Nasty!
Spring has certainly sprung!
