We're right in the middle of the winter doldrums. All of us are a little restless, and a little bored. The stockpile of indoor activities and games and projects aren't as exciting as they used to be. Movies are a lot more tempting and interesting than usual.
We keep talking about the long, warm days of summer. The bike rides, hikes, fishing trips, sprinkler runs, camp outs, barbecues, and family visits. The sunshine, grass, garden, leafy trees, birds, and water in the ditch.
Everyday that shows a hope of spring, with sunshine and less chill in the air, drives us outdoors to enjoy as much of it as we can. We sneak in a picnic or afternoon outdoors in between the snow storms. It's just enough to keep us happy.
