The Ice Age

Here in the Pacific Northwest, winter brings rain. My yellow daisy-like flowers are still blooming in the pot on my sidewalk. The pansy occasionally shoots up a purple bloom. The hyacinth bulb is sending up greenery. And so, just when I think spring should arrive--after all, the weeds are actually growing--the temperature drops.

By our standards, last night was really cold, down into the twenties. My boys were delighted to find water turned into ice in the sandbox (filled with rainwater now). It was thick, too, and lasted through the day.

I hear there are rumors of snow on Thursday.

Okay. Fine. But after that, no more winter. I'm ready for spring.

Me Too!
Mostly because I want to see if those 250 bulbs that I planted in my new flower bed will come up and what they will look like (providing the moles haven't already had them for an afternoon snack.)

I want (J) to be able to run around outside again, and amidst all my daily struggles, see fresh shoots of life come from everywhere and know that we are back on the cycle of the newness of life.

Yep, I'm ready for spring too.
