Spring makes an entrance

Spring is definitely on its way. Up to a few days ago, I still couldn’t say that it was feeling like spring. The sun was clearly beginning to return after winter, which was nice to see, but the weather was still late-wintry. We were starting to get warm days here and there, but in between it was back to cold and deep dumps of snow. But the past several days have been distinctly mild. We have lost a lot of snow and patches of bare ground are starting to show. The sun is strong enough that we can chip away at the remaining snow banks, spread it out on the blacktop of the driveway, and watch it melt.

E. and I made our weekly grocery trip today and were able to go together since she’s on break, something we don’t get to do much with her new work schedule. We also went out for a nice long walk in the sunshine this afternoon and explored a side road we haven’t been on before. Afterward we had a sauna and then dinner. It was a day of simple pleasures.
