Spring Sing Fling Thing*

This was what greeted me as I walked into the dentist’s office this fine March morning.


Yes.  A thousand times, Yes.  Bring it on spring.  We certainly haven’t had a harsh winter (especially compared to the frozen snowy hellscape that the Midwest saw this year), but I love it when the weather turns and spring arrives.  I live a much healthier life when the weather is nice.  I eat better, I get outside more, I’m more active, and my mood improves exponentially.  Blooms more blooms.

It was 50 degrees in Anacortes today, and we’ve had glorious sunshine all week.  Tally and I took advantage today.  We started cleaning up the yard a bit – weeding and trimming back my hydrangea bush.



We headed up to the community forest lands behind our house and hiked.


It was deserted enough that I let Tally off the leash.  She is surprisingly adept at trotting a bit ahead, then stopping and checking to make sure I’m still on my way.




I got this look a few times though, which clearly means, “Mumma!  Hurry!  Hike faster!  This is soooooo much fun!”

The trail had some slight elevations, but nothing too steep.  Most of the path was dry as well, though I did have to do some creative footwork in a few spots to avoid mud puddles.  All in all, today has me very excited for more spring!

*This was the title of our elementary spring music program.  Too this day, it makes absolutely no sense, but rolls off the tongue in such a pleasing manner that you can’t help but smile when you say it.
