Oh, my. There is a season-shift afoot. The snow is gone, the temps are rising, and the earth is becoming soft beneath my feet. We find ourselves outside in the mud and the sunshine all day, playing in the warm breezes and getting lost in the magic of this unexpectedly early spring.
Inside we seem to spend just enough time to make a good thorough mess and then run off again. Wow. Our house is trashed. So today, we will clean. A little anyway. And then we'll head back out into the garden and the yard and the woods for another day of pseudo-spring as we'll dance to the music of the birds.
And before bed, as always, we will read. Even in the outside-all-the-time spring there is time for reading. I haven't shared our favorite books with you for a long time. Some of these I've shard with you before (our perpetual favorites), others we have joyfully discovered more recently. Happy Tuesday, and happy reading (if you can make yourselves sit down for long enough).
