It is the first day of Spring. It is 45º, the birds are singing, the sun is about to come up (it's 7:02 a.m.) and it is going to be a sunny day. I am going to go out and run this morning. Run outside in the sunshine with the birds. I cannot tell you how much joy this brings me.
Last night when I drove into my street at the end of the day, I saw my sponsee's jeep and a ladder or two in my driveway. I had forgotten that she said she was going to paint my living room and dining room. When I came in, the job was nearly done! What a wonderful surprise at the end of a day! We were both starving, so I ordered Chinese, we ate that, and finished reinstalling the drapery hardware and putting the drapes back up... etc.... It was really nice. My house is nearly done (for now).
I am going to head out for a wonderful run, and then put in a productive day at work. I am grateful that it looks like I have lived through another winter, and now get to enjoy the springtime.
