PSF- Anxious

The last few days have been cool and rainy.   As a matter of fact it is raining right now.  Thunder too.  Though I love a good thunderstorm having rain for a week can really make a person antsy.

Yesterday morning the sun made a brief appearance.  The sun was shining, the grass green from all the rain, and tulips and daffodils were budding all over town.  It really had me jonesing for some warm weather.  All of the loveliness made me anxious to skip over the rest of spring and go right to summer and I don't think I'm the only one.

On the way to school, giddy as the sun beams shot into the car,  I pointed out how all the leaves are coming out on the trees.

"Look at all the trees!  They are starting to get green with leaves now.  Isn't that pretty?"  I asked Ben and Grace.

"Yeah!"  they both responded.

"It makes me so excited for summer!"  I said.

"It makes me 'cited to wear a dess!" Grace added.

Joining in on the summer excitement Ben shouted, "Look!  An ice cream truck!"

I laughed as I corrected him, "That's an ambulance, honey."

I guess we are all anxious for summer.

I could skip spring every year I think it is just a tease with the warm weather but all the rain.

I love your first photo! And I adore Spring, so much.

I giggled about the ambulance/ice cream truck mix up. ;)

I'm so ready too! I am ready for the outdoors. We've been having a lot of unseasonably warm weather here, however, today has been cold and wet. Just kinda steals a little of that excitement for summer away.
btw...thanks for reading my blog and for your comments.

Our ice cream man has been frequenting our neighborhood lately. The kids have been digging their money out and chasing him. I am SO READY for the slower pace of summer!

Yes, we had such warm weather in March and now it's been just cool and windy and rainy for so long. We are anxious for some better weather too!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
