It’s that time of winter when the temperature gets higher for a day or two and the snow starts to melt, forming scattered puddles in the streets. I retire my winter gear for the year and pull out my light spring jacket, even though in a few days the temperatures will drop again and my hands will be freezing without my mittens. I blast the stereo and sing at the top of my lungs with a huge smile on my face.
I guess you could say that I’ve caught a bad case of spring fever. With two blizzards and cold, cold temperatures all winter, I am so ready to see the green grass and beautiful flowers again. I’m ready to walk outside in just my sweatshirt and be completely content. I’m ready to go to the park to sit and watch the squirrels and hear the kids’ laughter again.
Today marks the first day of my spring break, so I decided to pull out some spring clothes. I paired my chiffon floral dress with my dark jeggings, cognac boots and one of my denim jackets. I was actually able to stand outside in just my denim jacket for about 10 minutes while pumping gas without completely freezing. That’s a good sign, but I can’t wait until the other coat won’t be needed at all!
Have you caught a case of spring fever? If so, how are you coping?
