Here we are with only a handful of days over forty degrees and the days of sub-zero are already starting to erode from my memory bank – not unlike the way the memory of the pain of labor erodes after the birth. Today I saw some of the tell-tale signs of spring – kids playing basketball, people out walking, my neighbors sitting outside visiting. When I went to the store I saw other signs – drivers with windows down and sunroofs open, motorcycles and one of my favorite harbingers of spring (aside from daffodils and robins) – attractive male runners who run shirtless. Yum, yum, triple yum.
Ah yes, spring is finally here in earnest and I am feeling happier by the minute. Signs of life are starting to emerge – just like a new baby full of promise. Give me a few more weeks of attractive shirtless runners and I won’t even remember winter…let’s hope I remember to watch the road.
Day six hundred and forty of the new forty – obla di obla da
