A taste of Spring...or not!
A moment in time is what Thursday seemed like. A brief fleeting moment of Spring like warmness that filled the air. You know the kind that brings couped up adults and children from their hibernation out into the wide open spaces in the neighborhood. Well that's what Thursday was. It was only 54 degrees but it felt like 80. I bundled my crew up and threw them out into the yard. It was amazing! I smelled BBQ's, watched planes fly overhead and saw 5 little boys running in circles almost confused about being set free. From every corner of the yard I heard little voices proclaiming "MOM, look at this.....", "Mom, look leaves, rocks, sticks" and the occasional "MOM, look at the dog poop!" OK, it was a long winter and I picked up thousands of petrified Sidney turds.I brought out toys that had been hidden for 5 months and BUBBLES!!!!! Bubbles are our favorite. We played for what seemed like hours. Then after the last toy had been put back into hibernation we went back inside. We where dirty and exhausted but it was so worth it! Will Spring ever come to the Western New York region? Maybe not now since it is again in the 30's but soon. Until then we will fondly remember our gentle taste of SPRING!
