For years spring has been securely lodged in the “3rd favorite” season slot. Winter is terrible because….snow, ice, blah blah, we all get that. But spring is always soggy, windy and generally not that pleasant.
However, this past nightmare of a winter has made me long for spring in ways I never thought possible. Over new years when I had the flu I watched 5 seasons of Breaking Bad. It was amazing, but eye balls started to ache.
Today it was actually warm enough to be out with shorts and no coat! I spent some of the day on campus wrapping up some work while people were still in town before heading off to spring break adventures. I got off the bus and I realized I had nowhere to be. Instead of getting in my car to head home I walked across the street to West Side Park (my favorite in town) and just sat on a bench and read for an hour or so.
When I got home I left my phone on the charger, grabbed some sunglasses and took my dog for a 4 mile walk. It was amazing! I was sniffing the air like a dog with it’s head out the window as if I was trying to memorize the smell of living plants. I’m sure this is because it will be miserable and cold here all week.
Spring may not be my favorite season, but I sure missed what it feels like to be in the sunshine!
Day 15: reading at the park on a beautiful sunny afternoon! #100happydays #nature #bliss (at West Side Park)
