I think its becoming pretty obvious that I'm getting impatient for spring. It was a bit easier not to think about it when there was snow on the ground but the valley bottom is back to its regular "February Brown" color and now I get antsy. Patience is a virtue I need to work on.
Today was the first morning that I felt like I could drive to work without headlights on. Not a sunny day, still typical low cloud, but it was bright. Oh how tempting it is to call in sick in the weeks building up to spring. Just want to strap on my hiking boots & head for the hills. But then, the hills are still covered in snow. So they aren't ready for me yet.
I think its just a longing to be outdoors, away from a desk, away from a cooped up building full of dust and paperwork & people with colds. I long for some fresh air, sun in my face, and the smell of the wet earth coming back to life. I'm longing for walking & hiking and riding on the motorbike, daylight past 4:30pm, sunrise before 7:30am.
Are you eagerly anticipating spring? Is your world still covered in snow & ice or starting to thaw? I can't be the only one with this longing so please share with me yours!
