sense alert

I noticed some colors today while out and about that I haven't seen for
a very long time. Not really THAT long, but when all you see is white
every day for three months straight, a speck of color is noticed.

Grass. Actual, living grass. An oxymoron if I say so myself. Green grass nestled right up against the white snow.

To some, this is a very bleak color. But to me, seeing the black of the
driveway brings excitement for more outside play. The bikes can be
removed from the hangers. The scooter and assorted toys will once again
flood the garage and be in full use.

Now this color was the most exciting of all. I thought my eyes were deceiving
me. A quick detour in the vehicle proved me wrong when I saw the
movement of this color proudly displayed on the breast of a robin.

It's almost here. You could actually smell it today. Feel it in the clear,
warm air. A taste of what is to come. Almost. So close. Just out of

I can see it, smell it, taste it. Oh, it's out there, baby. It's out there.

Fantastic post, Jean! Ah, how I want spring to arrive. I feel like I NEED the newness of it right now so badly. Your post really struck a chord.

Especially on a day like today. 57 degrees at 11 a.m. Too bad it's supposed to snow in two days. :(

Thanks Hillary!

I love seeing the black pavement. I used to go swimming in the summer, and when we came home, we'd lay out on the pavement on beach blankets, soaking up the sun from above and the heated pavement from below, to warm up. Good memories! My BFF and I would take a boom box out and listen to Tiffany and Cyndi Lauper...... we were so cool. heh heh

That's HILARIOUS!!!! HAAAA!!!!!
