“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.”

Last night was one of those why aren’t I sleepy nights but finally, around 2 or 2:30, I felt tired so I dragged myself upstairs to bed. Until then, the TV was my only distraction. I did try reading, but I just couldn’t make my mind hold on to the words, and I lost track of the plot by the third paragraph, despite a couple of re-readings, so I gave up. My next activity was a few games of cribbage on Pogo but even that didn’t hold my attention.

Amazingly it was still 40° when I went upstairs. I almost wanted to go for a walk, but good sense led me to bed where I finally fell asleep.

The warmth has held and right now it is 45°. When I went to get the paper, I had to stand outside for a while because the air smelled a bit like spring, all fresh and new. It also felt like a spring morning when the air has a chill without being cold. If the sun were out, I’d be sitting on the deck, but, alas, we have a grey day though I still have hopes for the sun as the sky seems to be getting lighter.

Today is errand day, and I have three stops to make. When I finish, I’ll going to take a ride up-Cape as it has been a while. I know there are croci blooming along 6A. I think they’re just what I need, and they’ll go perfectly with the feeling of spring in the air.

    It seems tv is just as bad where ever one is in the world and even worse after mif´dnight 🙂 🙂

    Yesterday was a my god why can’t i stay awake after 8pm night for me 🙂 I tried to read some when I wentv to bed but it was useless.

    The nights are still cold but it’s around 32F during the day and today it snowed at first but turned towards drizzle before I came home. I only wish that this meant spring was on its way, but winter can stay until late April up here.

    Have a great day!

      We are captives while the rest of the world sleeps!

      Right now it is 10:20 and still warm. It was raining when I got home from trivia. The last two days have been far too warm for February!

      I know we are being lulled into feeling warm and spring-like then winter will slam us with snow and cold. It is just a question of when!

    I went to bed 15 mins into the Raechel Maddow show, too tired to hold on. I woke at 4am, too early for me and when I turned the TV back on arrived at exactly the same point in an interview as I had turned off 7 hours earlier. What kind of luck do they call that? Our weather is lovely but cold snaps hit in too fast to catch. Flat drops of 40 to 20 are now common to this Central Florida Region. I do not like it at all.

      I don’t thing that’s serendipity but I’m not quite sure what to call it. It is definitely eerie!

      We are far too warm right now. I don’t like it either as I’m thinking winter is just waiting in the wings to do us in!

    Hi Kat,

    It’s certainly a strange winter. I noticed that my vicious roses have broken bud and are leafing out. No wonder they are taking over the yard. They’re like dandelions. Give them a few days of warm and they’re off and running to get ahead of all the other plants.
    And, knock on wood I think, there have been no spawns of Satan. Anywhere in the neighborhood. I don’t believe that the coyotes and foxes have eaten them all.
    Have a good day. Hope you see lots of croci.

      Hi Caryn,
      I haven’t seen any spawns either. I figure that the weather is so warm they are finding food all over the place and don’t need to ravage my feeders.

      It is the strangest of winters. I don’t remember one with so few cold days. One day in the next five will be in the 30’s; the rest will be in the 40’s. That’s not winter we know it!
