So it’s been September for a few weeks now but it’s only been this week that I’ve experienced the little signs that make me think, oh yes, it really is Spring!
First and foremost – painted toenails!
Yes indeed, I have dusted off the open-toed shoes and broken out the nail polish. Love it!
Second – dreaming about a pool.
Every year around this time I catch myself wistfully wishing we had a pool, or knew someone with a pool well enough that we could camp out there for the summer. I had this moment on the weekend, when I really wished there was one handy!
Third – a spring in my early-morning step!
I am a morning person, but even I find it depressing to drag myself out of bed in pitch-black darkness and stumble, bleary-eyed, around the bedroom. Love the fact that now when I open my eyes, the sun is peeking through the cracks in the blind.
Fourth – arms and legs.
Once more I can see my children’s arms and legs! They’re so cute. The downside, of course, is the additional half-hour time slot for suncream application now needed everytime we leave the house.
Finally – mangoes!
Not the sad, artificially ripened ones you see in the shops in Winter, but the real, seasonal, honest-to-goodness kind. Nothing says warm weather better than a delicious, juicy mango.
So needless to say – Spring is here and I am happy about it 🙂
