Springing up Spring

April 5, 2013 at 1:09 pm (Uncategorized)


The weather is FINALLY warming up!  I walked home from the gym last night in capris and a light sweater and it felt marvelous.  The temperature was in the 50’s and that is a warmth I haven’t felt in Chicago since way before 2012 ended.  There were birds singing, flowers starting to sprout, kids playing on the sidewalk with their parents and enough people out for jogs and walks that I was reminded this is actually a fairly populated city.  The bars even had their outdoor patio furniture set out and get this – people were using it!  When I got home, I saw that Scott had removed the winterizing plastic wrap formerly adorning our living room windows and had even cracked a couple.  Our cat was going crazy sniffing around the fresh air and so I think he’s been feeling the cabin fever too.  Sure, the weather is back in the 40’s today but the ten day forecast calls for a lot more of the 50 degree stuff and I am READY!  Hell, as long as we’re finished with days in the 20’s, I’m happy as a clam.  We’re going to tune up the bikes this weekend and bust them out too, so I can once again reenact the Wicked Witch/Toto scene from The Wizard of Oz.

Just gotta find my basket.

Bring on the sunshine, bring on the HEAT!
