Today is warm and sunny, birds are chirping, we have a window open, I’m not wearing any kind of outerwear (not even a light scarf!), and with the time change makes for a happy Sarah. I feel like a veil has been lifted and feel like myself again. Like the old man who’s not dead (yet) in the Holy Grail said “I feel happy! I feel happy!”
I had to take advantage of this beautiful weather while I can. What with being March you never know when we might get a freak snow storm, very cold days or rain for weeks. So I packed up my One Skein Scarf knitting, the current book I’m reading (The Help, which so far is really good) and some water and went to Lincoln Woods. I found myself the perfect spot to sit and enjoy being outside, reading, knitting and watching the birds.
I also got to wear a new shirt that I’ve been looking forward to being able to wear. Even though it’s pink, I really love it. I love me some sukura and do hope to go to Japan some day and see them blossom for the Spring festival.
I think Harry’s current haiku says it best.
Another brief glimpse
Gentle warmth and golden light
Spring’s youthful kisses.
