Crawling into Spring

This morning I was filling in important dates on my planner (swimming lessons, dinner reservations, out-of-town plans, etc.) when I noticed that Daylight Savings Time begins this Saturday already. I know that they (who is "they" by the way?) recently changed this so that DST begins earlier and ends later now. I love this idea! It's so hard to wake up in the morning without natural daylight and it's so much more difficult to do anything but camp out on the sofa in the evening when you can only find your way by moonlight and streetlights.

A couple more page-turns and I realized that Easter is only three weeks away. This, too, is earlier than usual. All these days are supposed to cue the entrance of spring, right? Then why does my Weather Bug still gloat 13 degrees? And why did I have to buy pants and long-sleeves for William's Easter outfit? In fact, I'm considering just saving that outfit for some other event and opting to reuse his Christmas sweater and corduroys!

But in all honesty I have felt the shift even if it is ever so slight. My mood is a bit lifted. I don't feel so daunted anymore when I need to go outside. Lately William's been able to join me in my mail run followed by 10-15 paces up and down the driveway. It's done wonders for his mood as well. But the problem is that all this taste of Spring just makes me want it to come faster. But the seasons will change on their own clock and so we wait patiently. Before you know it I'll be back to my hot weather posts! Either that or I'll be posting about our latest 6 inches of a snow storm...
