Mother Nature is a big tease, letting us taste a drop of spring here and there. She's mean, really.
What I want to do is throw open the windows and doors and let the cool fresh air fill my home and my lungs. But I know it's too early. Within minutes I'd be pulling a blanket over my bare feet and slipping my goose-bumped covered arms into the sleeves of a sweater. There's a reason I still have fleece sheets and an electric blanket on my bed.
It's still winter.
But oh, I wish it was spring.
For now, I will close my eyes and pretend I feel the warmth of the sun on my face and smell the blossoms tossing pollen into the air. For now, I will watch the frozen white mounds melt away and the puddles dry up.
Impatient as I am, I will wait.
Are you feeling a little spring fever yet? What are you doing about it?
