This is me afraid of jinxing the whole thing

But I can't hold it in. I think . . . shhhhhh . . . it just might be Spring!

Shhhh! Don't tell anyone! Don't even say it outloud or it might go away!

And seriously, if you ruin this for me I will find you and hurt you. Don't mess with that SADD patient. Not that, you know, that's actually been confirmed by an actual medical person, but that's not the point. And it won't save you from getting pummelled.

There have been three beautiful sunny days this last week, and things are turning all greenish, and daffodils are popping up, and I just can't even take how exciting it all is. Because it turns out that in scientific terms:

England (January + February + March) = Crap

Also I hold the Intellectual Property rights to that equation. I am so glad now, thinking back, that I did my study abroad here in the fall (September thru December). Because I don't know how the poor kids who are only here for the Winter semester even handle it. I imagine it's those couple of weeks in April that make the whole thing worth it.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go deal with the urge I'm currently having to go skipping about like those idiots in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers when they're all scampering and being coy on the farm in the spring with the baby lambs and stuff.

(Only as I wrote the part about baby lambs I seriously paused and thought, "Baby lambs?? PRECIOUS!! Oh my gosh where can I find some of those?!?")

I had a pet lamb when I was a little girl. He followed me everywhere I went, too. But not to school. He was strictly a country boy.

I think that equation applies to more than just england (like alaska and some parts of northern utah). Those are some pretty flowers. Enoy them.

Today, I have all the doors to my house open. I also am wearing a big ole sweatshirt so that I don't freeze, but the point is that my doors are open. Hooray for spring!

There aren't any stinking flowers here! Just think about how much more springy it will be when you get back from vacation. Lucky.

Woah. Gorgeous photos! Do we have the same camera? Mine's a Canon Powershot Elph with like 7 megapixels. I think yours is similar. Anyway. We went to a baseball game today. In short sleeves!

It's spring alright. just remember spring=spring showers too.
Also, I have purchased a copy of P&P. I will probably be made to watch it next week.

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous. I sat on the back patio and started sanding down this old chair that I foolishly decided to fix up.

And then last night it snowed three inches. I hate this state.

Ha HA! We've had dafodills (and trout lilies and iris and red buds and bradford pears) for a month. NORTH CAROLINA RULES!

Wow, check you out April/Mary! Did you ever eat him? I hope not, because that would be sad.

I'm sure you're right, Anon. :-)

Hah. How'd you like that snowstorm, Cic?

Hello my sister. It might make you feel better to calculate the number of sunny days you get in UT. Only wait, you're moving to flipping FLORIDA, so nevermind.

Hello dearest, mine is the Canon Powershot A75 with 3.2 megapixels. So yours is still way better. :-) Only Ed changed my settings so that it's shooting at the really high (poster-sized) resolution.

Yay for you and P&P, Walrus! Is spring beautiful in Wales too?

Sorry, SB. But I'm glad you had a bit of nice weather. Snerk.

All in favor of not speaking to Sakhmet, say "Aye!" Only I can't do that because I'm just thrilled that you commented. You manipulative thing.

Apparently I blocked from my memory that my lamb was sold when he grew up because he was enormous enough to draw interest from a buyer. I dare not think of what happened to my dear lamb after that.
