Midwestern Spring

Originally uploaded by chaimann
Nineteen days ago, I was watching it snow, and trying, somewhat unsuccessfully, to take a picture of a cardinal in the back yard without opening the window.

Today it is 86 degrees. Every window in the house is open, and I put on a sleeveless shirt to mow the back yard.

And, after I work for a few hours tomorrow, I will be on vacation. Not a furlough, but an honest-to-goodness vacation.

I love spring.

it was 92 here (i don't care what the weathermen say, my car said it was 92, and it jives with every other "real" thermometer i've seen). we did solar dyeing, it was so warm! (and my verification word is "hotlite." is that a spring warmspell?)
