    ...is not Christmas, but rather...SPRING!!!

    The weather over the past few days totally changes my entire state of mind. I LOVE IT! It's so uplifting to walk outside in the warm, spring air, watching the birds hop from one leaf-budded branch to the next...the smell of fresh cut grass and blooms on some of the trees and from people's gardens....the light breeze that floats through my office now that we can have the windows open again...

    ...it's like it's a new beginning for everything, not just the trees and flowers. At least it feels that way to me. :D

    I even called up the boyfriend and suggested we go out and throw the ball around when I get off work (I love playing baseball, but usually don't like it so much with him...he throws too hard, I'm not fast enough, and I end up with brusies :grumpy: )

    So...who else out there loves spring as much as I do?

    What are your favorite things about spring?

    I like planting my garden every spring. :sun:

    It's tomato time now. :cheer:

    And it makes all my critters really happy, too. Jinx pretty much lives outside in the warmer weather, and the O-dog is always friskier.

    I'm glad there are no more snow boots, hats, gloves, snow pants, parkas and other assorted winter apparel to get the boys dressed in each day :cheer:

    Ug, I HATE all the extra clothes!!!! I'm sure it's a huge pain trying to dress kids in all that everyday.

    You've probably seen photos of my mom's garden.... if you haven't tell me and I'll go dig them up. :)

    She was out all day today planting a bunch of stuff... she says she's running out of room... and she has a 40' x 40' garden with an extra 5' between it and the fence!!! LOL

    have to agree with the gardening thing...just built my raised gardens (close to 10 tons of dirt?) and now it's time to plant, I'm excited. way too early for maters at the moment though (here at least), trying to squeeze in peas/lettuce/beans in tonight.

    and beautiful women with minimal clothing on....ahhhhh spring.

    Warm weather in britain is never good. British people have enough trouble looking stylish in the cold. In the warm the basically strip and wear fishnet speedos.

    Not where I thought I'd end up
    Water, boats, and bathing suits... Spring, Summer, and Fall but especially in the Spring. They're such a welcome sight after snow and ice and head-to-toe covered people.

    Yeah Carl, but that's gonna require leaving the crypt during the day. Maybe try the spray-on-tan stuff! And you know, that Casper look is really stylish for late-night socializing around the mansion.:)
