Peeps, Baby Binks, and Peanut Butter Eggs

It’s still cold here.  Today’s high will be barely over freezing.  The snow has been melting this week and has turned into a nice glaze of ice.  I’ve skated down the hill in the back yard more times than I can remember.  Blacky and Luci think I’m playing but I’m really just trying not to fall down.  Luci tried to do a snow angel this afternoon and slid down the hill on her back.  Yes, I laughed really, really hard.  The weather geeks are calling for freezing rain and sleet for tonight and tomorrow and a possibility of snow on Monday and Tuesday.  Winter isn’t over for us yet.
But I do have some hope that spring is just around the corner.  I did the grocery shopping this morning and saw a very happy sight.  Sure signs of spring that always put me in a good mood.  I saw Marshmellow Peeps, Baby Binks chocolate bunnies, and Reese Peanut Butter Eggs.  Yes, they had the Easter Candy out!  Happy dance right there in the candy aisle.  
I bought a 4 pack of pink Peeps bunnies.  They are sitting on the counter in the kitchen.  Just seeing them makes me smile almost as much as eating them.  I bought one Reese Peanut Butter egg . . . I bought only one because if I bought a bag of them I would eat them all in one sitting.  I looked at the Baby Binks chocolate bunny and decided that I’d wait until a little closer to Easter before I bought him.  Same concept as the peanut butter eggs .  . I buy it now, I eat it now.  
As I was walking out of the grocery and out to the car I saw the ultimate sign of spring.  Beautiful little Girl Scouts selling cookies in the lobby.   
I wonder if anybody noticed the happy dance I did on my way out to the car?
