Shadows and Light

So the Groundhog said 6 more weeks of winter (I think he must have made a mistake). If I were the seer of seers the prognosticator of all prognosticators Spring would be on the way sooner rather than later. Here are my indicators that Spring will soon be here.

1. Here in my part of New England we've had two mostly sunny days in a row where we've seen temperatures above 45! (I am totally in denial about the snow we are supposed to get tonight.)

2. I wore these shoes to work today instead of snow boots. (This may be a foolish case of denial- or a full fledged case of Spring fever?)

3. The sound of melting snow and ice can be heard, and the air smells like thawing earth. (If I were to acknowledge the snow we are supposed to get- the fact that it's only 1-3 inches instead of 1 foot is surely another sign of spring.)

4. I have pulled these sunny colored little daisies out and started knitting a few more. (I think they last saw daylight about this time last year.)
