Spring! I feel it. Even though we spent 1.5 chilly hours at the park yesterday in coats and hats, I know it’s creeping closer.
Maybe it’s because it’s staying lighter later, which I’m loving! However, I’m not loving how the time change has messed with my super sleeper. Next time I’ll do the smart mom trick of scooting bedtime by 15 minutes for the week before.
But in the end, the more light means warmer weather is around the corner and also means I can start taking evening meal pictures again. I’ve got the itch to cook and try out some new recipes. Hopefully I’ll have some good ones to share soon, like this shrimp dish!
Spring means getting off the dreadmill and getting back outside. I haven’t run much lately, but knocked out 2.7 miles yesterday and decided I could do a 10k in a month, soooooo I’m signing up for Racefest. Anyone else?
Warm weather also hopefully brings more time for relaxing. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to sit and read in the sunshine on vacation.
To those that recommended this book, thank you. It was fantastic. Though it was incredibly hard to head what this man went through at times, I was enthralled with his story and perseverance. I might have found my new niche- history! I really loved learning more about World War II and the US conflict with the Japanese.
Finally, spring means farmers markets open (locals, Josh’s open March 27!) Oh sweet, fresh produce, I’ve missed you!
It also means that I’ll attempt once again to turn my black thumb green. I’m simplifying after my overly ambitious gardening goals of last year. This year I want to focus on herbs, peppers and maybe tomatoes, but I find them so tricky!
Are you gardening this year?
What will you plant?
When will you plant it?
Anyone else getting giddy for spring?
