dear winter is on his way out – it hit 57 degrees today and the kids already asked to play in the sprinkler. i mean, it IS 74 degrees warmer today than it was in the picture above…. so i don’t blame them. i found perverse joy in taking photos of the temperature on my phone all winter. now i’m left with about twenty coooooold photos. to prove what, exactly? i don’t know – my bravery? my determination? my shivering??? my stupidity in getting a new puppy and having to stand outside with him while we were potty training him? one sad night includes pictures taken at 1 am – minus 11 degrees, 3 am – minus 13 degrees, and so on. at that time of morning, it’s not like anyone was near me to whine to, so i whined to myself by documenting every minus degree.
we are desperate for warmth. and me? desperate for baseball. because that can only mean spring is ready to hit and i’m ready to tackle it head on! documenting every plus degree along the way, i’m sure.
on the spring agenda this week:
-plan herbs for my new kitchen garden window
-plan outside garden and plant spinach seeds
-start digging through winter clothes, and sorting the kids’ summer clothes
-sit in the sun and just… soak up the warmth
