Is It Spring Yet?

I’m not sure why winter is getting to me

so much this year.

Maybe because we’ve had


or maybe it’s just an odd year.

It’s been bitterly cold here —

too cold to even venture out most days–

so today I seized the tropical temperatures

of 30 degrees

and hauled the kids outside

like it or not.

Alex is not always a fan of time outside

And the others were not wild about the idea either

but soon snowballs were flying

and forts were being build like mad.

And then everybody was having fun

and I was the one wishing we could

just go inside already.

And okay, I guess I can see a little fun

in all this cold and white.

After all, what fun would spring be

if it was easy to come by?

Enjoy the weather

no matter what type you’re blessed with this week.

But if you happen to live someplace warm and sunny

please enjoy it a little extra for me!

Happy Thursday!

    Wonderful pictures! Can’t wait for Spring!!!!

  2. I can imagine that too much snow gets old. Where we live, we just get lots and lots of rain and grey so I miss the sun and would love some snow here and there. The sun did come say hello for a bit today so that was wonderful! Looks like your kids are having fun! 😉

    • I wish we could ship some snow out and spread the wealth. 🙂 I’m sure the grey gets old! Here in the winter it’s often all white or all gray — the sky looks white and gray and the snow is white and the trees are just black skeletons, so it really looks as if the world is black and white sometimes. There’s a beauty in it, but not for 4 months straight! When the sun comes out it’s all good though. And yes, the kids had a ball!

  3. Wow! I give you a lot of credit for going out in 30 degree weather! You’re so right about spring being that much sweeter because you’ve braved the chilly winter months. Enjoy!

    I second that! We came home from celebrations with family to ice dams so bad it was raining in our house. Yikes!
    I am dreaming of sun and warmth and beaches….while I get ready to go sledding with my kiddos. 🙂

  5. Ooooh, I’m having a REAL hard time enjoying our weather. We’ve had a layer of snow that got all tramped down, then half-melted and then refroze to become extremely slippery… I’ve only dared venture out past our garden once this week because I had an appointment with the midwife, but otherwise even the garden shed seems like a suicide mission!
    We’re enjoying the inside instead. Maybe I’ll make a snowglobe…

  6. Ooh, that sounds tricky! I like the snowglobe idea too. 🙂

  7. Happy thursday:) I am going to take your advice and enjoy the weather today, even though its about 41C (105 F)….the snow looks beautiful, from down here where there never is any and its never that cold! Enjoy your day and the new year comming in:)

  8. Oh, I wish we could swap for just a few days. 🙂 Enjoy the day! Happy New Year too!

    We are expecting 37°C ( 98.6 F ) and thunderstorms today – happy to swap you for some snow! Keeping the kids inside in the airconditioning and have decided we’re going through the toy cupboard to see what we can donate to the Queensland (Australia) flood victims.
