I was incredulous to hear it was the first day of Spring a few days ago. It was still bitterly cold and there were several inches of snow left on the ground.
But today it is sunny and, while not warm, I could go outside comfortably in a sweater.
I don't think I mentioned it here before, but Bonita got me a guitar for Christmas. I had mentioned in the Fall that I'd like to learn an instrument more portable than a piano. I've been working through a beginning guitar book, and can play some simple songs like Yankee Doodle.
So today I sat out on the front porch and practiced my guitar. It was joyous.
With the coming of each winter, I am always entranced to see the first snowfall, but by the end of it I am always very weary and eager to see the Spring.
It's a good day today.
