Is It Springtime Yet???

What a difference a week makes sometimes. Last week it was 13 degrees here, with 6" of snow on the ground, and today I'm outside washing and waxing my truck in almost 80 degree sunshine. Well, I'm not complaining at all, I rather enjoy this. I love the change from winter to spring. I enjoy so much waking up and hearing the birds singing outside, and taking Tanner out in the warm sun to enjoy the day.

Talking to Katherine on the phone, listening to her tell about going to the sea and how it's hot there in Davao while it's cold and snow covered here makes me wish I was back there again. But on days like this, I'm just happy to be able to get out and enjoy it. Oh, don't get me wrong, there are things I love about winter also, the snow is beautiful when it's falling, and the quiet of the landscape as it lays there is a great sight. But I think these old bones take better to the warmth of the sunshine nowadays than to the freezing temperatures that make them stiff. Not to mention the heating bills!

Ah, we all have to live and enjoy the things God gives us each day, so I can't really complain no matter what each day brings. I do appreciate though, the sunshine I can enjoy today.
