Spring? What Spring?

I'm still waiting for it to warm up... I am grateful that the days are close to 30 - sometimes above, sometimes below, and that's loads better than a month or so ago. But March is almost over. It's supposed to be warmer. You know, sunshine... melting snow... I'm not being too greedy. I'm not asking for green grass and leaves on the trees (yet). I'm just wanting my world to warm up. Here's what this morning brought...

When I was brushing off the car this morning, the last of the rubber came off the old wiper blade on the passenger side. Fortunately I had the replacements in the car, just hadn't put them on yet. I decided I'd only change the passenger one since I'm running behind (again). I found a latch to release the old blade but for the life of me, I couldn't get it off. Didn't matter which way I flopped the blade or how I wiggled it, it wouldn't come off. So then I decided to try the driver's side. Took me less than a minute and I had it off. Must be because the mechanism was totally backwards from the other side. That and I just happened to accidentally pull down after unlatching it so it popped right off. So I was a bit late(r) to work, but my new wiper blades are super cool!! (Either that, or I've actually needed blades for quite some time and am just impressed with the way the rest of the world sees things...) Now I've got to replace the one on the back window - so I can see behind me just as well as in front. =) Yay, new blades! Boo, snow!

So what's that Spring saying: Out like a lion, in like a lamb??

I try to keep things in perspective by thinking about spring during my childhood. Except for two times, there was always a lot of snow still on the ground still at Easter-time. Enough to keep us from doing egg hunts outdoors. BUT, spring always seemed to follow close on Easter's heels. Maybe as I get older the winters just seem longer...

Hey Penny! (this is your cousin angie marble/kirkman)I agree with you. Let it warm up already! I know it isn't the same but we keep getting nice 60 degree weather one day and snow the next. Stop taunting me and warm up already!!!!

Maybe if we all think warm thought it will be warmer next week!?!?

Hey there, Angie!! Thanks for stoppin' by! Since next week we'll be into April (and closer to Easter - but I'll pass on the egg hunting, Stacy!), I suppose I can hold out a little longer... not like I've got much choice.

Winters do seem to get longer and longer - or else I'm just getting more impatient as I get older... ;)
