Mrs. M:
When spring comes, I will....
Eat breakfast on the porch every sunny morning
Pick fresh chives to put on my eggs
Look for violets in the lawn
Ride my bike to the grocery store
Smell the damp earth
Listen to birdsong
Hear the wind in the pines
Put my potted plants outside
Admire baby leaves on the trees
Feel the sun on my bare arms
Dream of lilac time
Thank God for new seasons and promises kept

  3. I hope your Spring will be here soon, your list sounds lovely.

    I have a photo of a baby wearing one of my crocheted caps on my post from yesterday. I was so THRILLED to see that the mother liked it so much! xx
    It was only simple, but I don't have to tell you how much it means when you crochet something and someone likes it!

    1. I saw the photo on my reading list, and am heading over now to read the post....

      You probably have Spring already, there in the warm South. Enjoy it for us shivering Northerners! :)

    Poor Weather Service, I'm sure they are as sick of winter, as we are though. -gigggles-

    Happy Spring!

    1. I wonder do they ever realize how much heartache and grief they spread? :)

      But of course it's not their fault. They don't make the weather, they only report it....

  8. There's nothing a weatherman likes better than bad weather! The best part about spring is that it arrives quickly once it gets started. Hang in there!

  9. Winter is lingering long here too - for the past week or so we've had quite a few snow flurries and it's still very cold. Snow forecast all day Fri, let's hope we get enough for some sledging then it can all go away and Spring can begin...

    1. Perhaps my problem is that I haven't been sledging enough....

      Here's to warmer weather on both sides of the pond. :)

    1. Even in the warm rain ... right now warm rain sounds wonderful! :)

  11. I think it's officially the first day of spring here, and there have definitely been small glimpses of it. I have been spring cleaning all day, so there some good come out of it I guess....I'm looking forward to wearing Tshirts, waiting for the dogs to do their final wees at night without jogging on the spot to keep warm, getting a start on our new garden, walking some more during the week, opening the windows to let the sunshine in, oooh, lots of things!

    1. I like your list ... especially the T shirt bit. Right now it seems to take about 10 minutes to get dressed. Too many layers! :)

  12. Amen to that!! I've really been second-guessing my decision to make a Temperature Scarf this year. Winter in Wisconsin is causing many more color changing rows than I had expected or hoped! Oh well, that's just what we can expect. But it's got to change soon, right? ;-)

    1. A Temperature Scarf - had to Google that. It sounds fascinating, but I could see how it might get depressing.... :)

      Yes, it's GOT to change soon!

  13. It has seemed like winter has lingered this year. Last year, I never felt like I got a winter at all. While I wish we had been blessed with more snow while it lasted, this cold can feel free to move on now at any time! I cannot wait for the world to come to life again!

    1. I know - last year was completely crazy. Hardly any snow, and 80 degrees in March. This year is much more normal - and now we all have the usual cabin fever. :)

  14. I am over winter. I want to go out without a coat. I want some warm sunshine. :)

    1. Warm sunshine, and NO WIND! Or at least some wind out of the south.... :)

  15. Your forecast sounds like mine. I don't have my own personal forecast yet except, when warm weather comes, I will ride... :)

    It will be a while before I can do some of the things on your list. But I look forward to every single one. Except I like my chives in other than eggs. :)

    1. Riding - that's really what's behind all this weather angst. I'm dying to get out on the road (you know why) and it's driving me nuts that I can't!

      Fingers crossed for a Sunday ride this weekend.... :)

  16. Excellent list! I'm with ya.
    Warmest congratulations on your blogaversary, too - I didn't want to put it on your giveaway post, since the yarn and books would be wasted on me. I'm so glad you started your blog, Sue - it's a pleasure to see life through your creative eyes.

  17. Today over here in Yorkshire its crisp outside and frosty but we have amazing blissful sun! I am thankful for the frozen ground, as now I get a break from mopping up large footprints and wiping big paws, as yesterday we had snow and big Newfie Farley likes the wet, mud, snow or rain. Its a lot of dog to dry!

    1. That's a good attitude to have about frozen ground ... we are anxious for a thaw so that some of the moisture can get into the earth. (Last year we had a drought.)

      Farley must be a very big boy now. :)
