I'd forgotten this part

Behold the glory of Spring.

That's one trip outside. Eight paws hitting a soggy yard and neither dog wiping their feet.

We're going to dry out when?

I know, I know

It's Michigan. A bit of sun for five days in a row does NOT mean Spring is here.

I know this. And yet ... five days of sun! Temperatures above freezing for days on end get me thinking about lunchtime walks, stepping outside without a jacket, and dare I say it? I do. I've been thinking of lounging in my friend's pool and working up a nice warm itchy sunburn come summertime. Preferably with a nice lemony drink or cold beer crammed into the float.

I like winter, I do. But I see the snow melting, the rose bush greening up, and it makes me thankful that I can get in the car and drive wherever I want without checking the weather forecast first.
