It’s here. It is finally here! I wait anxiously for this day every single year and every year, it is a different day. Usually I am the one who cracks under pressure and pleads to finally open our windows but this year it was my husband who said, open them all!
It is finally sunny and 19C/66.2F here today and the weather is supposed to stay steadily beautiful for a week. We have been lucky to get above 10C/50F here this spring, winter has held steady and cruel but the warm weather seems to finally be finding us.
Nope, that isn’t our house but it is our wild lawn!
We closed our windows eight months ago and I just do not feel right without fresh air. I NEED fresh air. I am an air sign damn it! Oh to breathe fresh air in my home again, I feel like less of a prisoner here.
Of course now I am spending time in my garden doing a little weeding at a time under strict supervision of my husband who is tired of seeing me get hurt in the garden. Fine. So I am here on my break (which is totally OK, I really loathe gardening, I’m more of a wild garden kind of gal) shouting to the world that spring finally found us! I am hoping this means that things in our life are finally looking up. And I will try not obsess about next year’s looming winter. For now, I am free and breathing again.
