Sunny Days are Here!

Check out this 5-day forecast...

I believe that is the first time that I have seen 5 days straight without rain since early October! My goodness, where are my shorts? The sunscreen? My sunglasses?

Not that this means the end of winter, it is just a little reminder that that bright warm orb we call the sun still exists. It hasn't been swallowed by concrete gray clouds. I just need to keep the emotions in check, because I can guarantee you that it will leave again until at least mid-March.

Now that I think about it, living in Seattle is kind of like that movie, Pleasantville. In winter it is pretty much a black and white movie...the sky is gray, the trees are gray, the road is gray, everything is gray. But come springtime the colors come creeping back until Seattle is once again worthy of it's title of the Emerald City...

Ahhh, I can't wait until I can walk on my lawn without that "squish, squish" noise.

Uh oh, haiku time!

Gray sky, marshy lawn
Stick it where the sun don't shine!
Oh, I guess that's here

Not this week!
