Today is the day!
The sun is shining, bright and beautiful. The temperature soars too warm for a jacket or even long pants. Plans for dinner change from soup and salad to grilling something, anything.
Everyone itches to get outside. What chore can we find? What situation can we create? What can get me closer to the fresh air, soaking up some sun?
Is it too early to talk about gardens? We don't care. Did they just mention swimming? That sounds like fun! Do we have any sun block? I don't think we do. Can you turn on the air conditioner? Maybe we will.
"Dad are you going to cut the grass? It's getting really long."
We cut the bushes, burn the grasses, wash the dog. We clean out the garage, get out our summer clothes totes, put away the boots and hats and gloves.
Today is the day! Spring has sprung!
What's that? It's going to be a high of 40 this weekend?
