It's the first day of Spring - the Vernal Equinox - the day when the sun rises due East and sets due West. I love Spring! It's finally warm enough to sit on the back porch and read and feel the warmth of the sun on my bare feet. Sometimes for long spells I'll look up from my reading and look at all the plump buds on the trees and bushes - some promising blossoms and others green leaves. There are more varieties of birds singing their songs along with the quieter insects. Another delightful sound is the laughter and chatter of my grand kids, who are outside playing in the dirt or riding their little bikes.
Spring always brings a feeling of hope and renewal. My energy levels increase (be it ever so slightly). I've even been exercising a smidgen the last 2 weeks. I feel like cleaning house, cooking meals and writing in my journal. I want to paint inside and out, rearrange furniture and knickknacks. Unfortunately, it will take more than spring to get me in the mood to wash windows!
To those of us in the northern hemisphere - here's to a rejuvenating and relaxing spring, to hope and promises fulfilled, and to basking in the beauties that surround us. Happy Spring!
