Spring’s Youthful Kisses

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.

    Beautiful pics. Sounds like the perfect relaxing day…I’m dying to go out when the weather is nice and knit….but I can’t get away from my kiddos long enough. Do you recommend the book? I saw the movie and loved it, but I’ve been debating on whether or not to buy the book.

      I’m only on chapter 6, but so far I am loving it. I would think if you liked the movie you’d probably like the book. I will see the movie sometime when it comes out on dvd (Yay Netflix!) and then I can then compare it to the book. You could always get the book from your library, which I did. I love libraries. All the books you could ever want to read and you don’t have to have them filling up your house. :)

        That’s why I got a Kindle!!! I have way too many books in my house and I couldn’t bear to add any more…I never have enough time for reading anymore anyway. This is one book that I really have been wanting to read though! Isn’t it already out on DVD? My husband and I got it at a RedBox. I just love Netflix. I mostly watch it streaming through xbox live while I knit on nights that I can’t sleep.

          We have it through the PS3. We love the streaming. We get to watch a lot of anime we otherwise would never have heard of. ^_^

          I like watching TV shows the best…they don’t take as much time as a movie, and you can watch them whenever you want without commercials. Also no cliff hangers cause you just start the next episode. :)

        • Sarah says:

          Exactly! I can watch a 30 minute episode of whatever while eating supper and then can do other stuff.

    Looks like you really made the best of this gorgeous weather, ms. S!
    I’m about to do the same and walk to work =)

    If you want to talk about the Help or compare it to the movie, let me know.
