‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

It's A Balmy 40 Degrees!

I know all my fellow New Englanders will join in the victory cheer with me... " It's time to open the windows!"

Anastasia and I woke up to the sound of snow sliding of the roof and water dripping off every eave of the house. It's spring! Well, that's what it feels like. We promptly turned off the heat and opened all the windows. The house smells so good! Neighbors are out primping their yards and wiping down there cars without the hassle of coats and gloves and hats. Kids are walking their dogs for the first time in weeks! Birds are chirping! No, none of this is an exaggeration no matter what any of you Floridians think. Right now I am sitting in my room with the windows open and the screens down, revelling in the smell of fresh air. The dogs are out playing in the slush of our yard, my daughter is singing a happy song, and all is well.

Tomorrow it's supposed to go up to 50 degrees! What will we do? It's almost too good to be true. Anastasia already brought out her summer clothes box. Tomorrow we'll hit the ground running in our spring gear for a day at the beach with the dogs. Life is good! Spring is upon us!

    I have got a big, cheesy grin on my face right now, because I JUST asked my husband, "Doesn't it feel absolutely balmy? I mean, it has got to be like forty degrees! Nothing like a little fory-degree heat wave after a month of 12" plus of snow :).


  3. Oh yeah!!!!!!!! It only got up to 40 here...but same thing. Even Jupiter is asking if it's almost Spring!!

  4. We're experiencing the warmth too. It has been so nice to have the windows open. Saturday night and Sunday breakfast was eaten outside in the crisp air. Fabulous!
