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?
