Anticipation of Spring
I do love winter, honest! But somehow over the weekend, we were gifted with fifty degrees and when I walked with only a fleece jacket it felt good. Yesterday I had all my hair cut off, well how about seven inches? I usually do drastic hairdos at the end of February. I chuckled to myself because I went in for a wee trim. Anyways, shampooing has become a breeze and I'm thrilled with my impulse decision.
I've noticed also how my knitting shades change towards a more spring-like theme. My socks are just so cheerful and bright. Same with the purple scarf-reminds me of my lilac bush. So for now, I will snuggle into the end of winter. The winds are blowing, I am cold while standing outside but the reality is we are slowly waving goodbye to a favorite season of mine. All too soon, trees will be budding, flowers will bloom and all the woolen knits will be tucked away for deep fall. Savoring each season as it enters and exits is a delight. Being in the moment is a gift.
