Slept with the windows open!

"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! "~Mark Twain

I almost feel guilty telling you that I slept with the windows open last night. Almost guilty. It was nice.

As I was getting ready to go to bed, I noticed it was a little warm in here. I did not have the heat or the a/c on, so I decided to pull out the fan and open the windows.

It was lovely.

That's the wonderful part of living in the south - the weather. Sure - we get a little taste of winter, but it does not start until December and always wraps up around my birthday. I am getting excited about spring. Usually the flowering trees show up by mid March.Sure, there will be a cold snap or two between now and April, but then it is gone with the wind and the most glorious time of the year hits the south. Nowhere else in the United States will you see so many amazing flowers, flowering trees, and lush greenery as you do here in the Winter. It is simply magical - it blows the mind!

Don't believe me? Here are the pics taken in  March last year in Birmingham:

Spring is an awakening of the spirit and of the earth. I hope to have a "reawakening" of my spirit and will be a more productive person.

Let's savor these little hints of spring! (If you live where it is still cold.. I do apologize - just live vicariously through me!)

I'm jealous! Those pictures are so beautiful. We had a taste of spring on Friday when it was in the high 60s here. I turned the heat off & opened all the windows for the day. The fresh air in the house was amazing. I can't wait!

It was super nice here on Friday, it reached nearly 70, but then yesterday was terrible, not because of the temperature (it was in the 40s) but thanks to the chilly 65 mile per hour winds. Brrr.

PS: Those pictures are prettiful. Yes, prettiful.
