thoughts of spring

Yes, I am aware that it is November, that we still have the rest of the fall and all of the winter to get through before spring. No, I'm not trying to hurry the seasons along ~ I love fall and winter, too. (And I do NOT need time to go any faster than it already is!)

So why am I thinking about spring? Well... because I am a gardener. I finally got around to buying a few bulbs today, and am hoping to get them in the ground this afternoon, before this unseasonally warm weather goes away. I love spring flowers ~ the daffodils, the tulips, the crocuses.... They all bring such joy after the cold, colorless winter. I had some really beautiful flowers this past spring, and am hoping for even more next spring! (I bought the bulbs to go in some new flowerbeds that we created over the summer.) It makes me smile to dig in the dirt, lovingly plant the bulbs, and then look forward to their blooms all winter long. :)

Today I am thankful for:
  • Flowers. I would have a whole yard full of them, if I could!
  • Good neighbors. We know what it's like to have awful neighbors and okay neighbors, and now we know what it's like to have really good neighbors, too. It's a wonderful feeling to know you have a friend living right next door! :)
  • One last day of warm weather. It's supposed to turn c-c-c-cold again tomorrow, so I'm trying to enjoy the warmth while I can!

I actually think humans should just hibernate during the winter -- or at least stay home curled up on the couch under some blankets reading good books. I can't believe it's supposed to snow tomorrow after it being 79 degrees today. Crazy!

Oh, hibernating (or just reading in bed) sounds good to me, too! :)
