Sipping my coffee, reading emails and listening to the updates on those silly groundhogs across the country, I hoped for Spring. I am so DONE with cold weather...done with all the dull browns...just DONE! Yesterday I saw a bit of green here and there as I wandered around the yard with the dogs. The Pres and I even began talking about "the plan" for what yard work needed to be done this year and when we will do what.
Spring must be on it's way as today temps will, once again, be in the forties. I plan to spend as much time outside as possible...just to fill my lungs with fresh air. After all, it is the year of the Yang Wood Horse which tells me to grab a chunk of mane, hold on tight and ready myself for an exuberant year. Yes, Spring is just around the corner here at our house.
In fact, this morning, with the dense fog lingering around the dogs and I, Spring was everywhere. Greeted by the cries of the adult eagles in the vicinity of their nest made me smile...made my mind soar. Yes, they will be mating soon and the egg laying will follow even though snow, sleet and freezing rain is predicted for Wednesday. Ah...Spring will be here soon, I thought as I rounded the corner and saw the deer nibbling at the corn and grain put out by the Pres.
But...according to Chuckles, our Mansfield, CT groundhog, who was not laughing when the prediction was made, CT has six more weeks of Winter...UGH! WHAT????? But what about all the signs I saw and heard and felt?
So what did your local groundhog say?
