Thirteen Things I Love About Spring.
1. The smell of freshly cut grass. It almost smells sweet.
2. The warmer weather. I'm a winter baby that hates the winter. The hotter the better.
3. Thundershowers. I know it rains during the winter but it rains more in the spring. The sound and the smell relax me and make me sleep like a baby.
4. Saving electricity. I love leaving the doors and windows open to let the breeze flow through. The fresh air just does something for me.
5. Kids. I'm from a generation where the kids liked to spend more time outdoors than inside (even though we still loved to play our video games). Seeing the kids playing outside, when it's finally warm enough just touches my heart.
6. Long walks. Once the weather finally turns, I love to spend time outdoors walking and enjoying the time with someone special.
7. Sitting on the patio (doesn't have to be your patio). What's better than sitting outside and enjoying the breeze? Sitting outside and enjoying the breeze.
8. Then there are barbeques. The smell of food cooking on a grill as you sit on the patio mentioned above is one of the best things ever. I know barbeques are sometimes thought of as a summer thing but around here we barbeque on the first day the temperature hits 70.
9. While enjoying the barbeque I like to watch the leaves come back. There cute light green color makes me feel good and happy inside.
10. The longer days are wonderful. I hate daylight savings time, really who wants to lose an hour, but having longer amounts of time with sunlight is so worth it.
11. I like the new wardrobe colors for the spring. Though the deeper reds and browns from fall and winter are lovely the blues and pinks of spring are my favorite.
12. Speaking of changes in wardrobe I like the new fashions of spring. The shorts, tanks and miniskirts are right up my alley.
13. Finally there are the opened toed shoes. I love to have my feet out and feel the air against my flesh.
It's supposed to be warm out today. I think I may go out and enjoy some of this spring weather!
