I love spring. I can't think of anything I don't like about it. The warmer weather. the thunderstorms. the flowers. the wildflowers. I even like the weeds. I passed a church today with a yard full of dandelions. They just look so happy. If they didn't end up looking so much like weeds after the flowers were gone, I'd plant them in my yard just to make me happy in the spring. :)
I love almost all L.M.Montgomery books. This week, I've reread Mistress Pat and came across a quote I loved. "It was going to be a dear quiet evening, such as she loved best, with every one and everything at Silver Bush (her home) happy. Pat loved to see things and people happy; and she herself had the gift, than which there is none more enviable, of finding great pleasure in little things." I love that. great pleasure in little things. We should all be more like that.
Ben turned 30 today! He's not quite sure how to feel about it. :) He has to work 10 hours today which bummed him out, but we're going to have some friends over tomorrow for a "party." And he wants decorated birthday cake this year! It will be the first one I've ever made for him. He's always wanted some other dessert. I have leftover orange and purple and red icing (each from a different decorating project), so it's too bad none of them are masculine. I guess I'll just have to add blue icing to my stack of leftovers in the fridge. :)
It's spring! at least for this week. :) and I'm so happy! I was sick all last week, so it's perfect for the weather to be beautiful just when I'm feeling better. It feels like God did it just for me. :) Ben had to go to the orthodontist this morning, so we did that then went to Shawnee Mission Park. It was pretty windy, but other than that it was great. We walked along the lake edge and then walked up a trail through the [still rather dead-looking] woods. It will feel more like spring when there are flowers out, the grass is green, and buds are on the trees. But Easter is in a month and by then it will be perfect. Which just seems perfect to me. I've always thought it was a little odd to have Easter when it still feels like winter. Enough rambling for today. Gotta go. A friend's coming over to watch Heroes tonight. yay! After I've been sick, I love feeling like I have energy to do everything! It's such a fresh feeling. It makes me realize that when I complain that I'm busy and tired, maybe I'm just complaining. :)
