You Know It's Spring When...

you just have to air out your house
drive with your windows down
hang the sheets outside in the breeze
then the sneezing begins

those pretty Bradford pears bloom
(and begin to stink)
the grass is suddenly a brilliant green
(mowing isn't far behind)

you see people wearing shorts with a sweater
or other unfortunate revealing combinations
because one day it's 80 degrees, the next day there's frost
so you keep flipping between heat and AC

you have an uncontrollable urge to:
clean out your closet
pack away coats, boots, and dark colors
wear something cheerfully bright
redecorate, lighten up and toss clutter
buy tulips for your kitchen table
clean off the porch, then just sit for a while
listen to the birds sweet song
bite the head off a chocolate Easter bunny
get up and walk off those winter pounds
let the sun shine on your face
explore the garden center
and so on...

Just pick something and do it. Enjoy Spring!
