I welcomed my first day of spring with every “first” I’ve been anxious to experience all winter long.
I say it’s MY first day, since it’s the first spring-like day that’s occurred on my day off. And I took full advantage of it.
After hitting the snooze button 6 times, (that in itself was glorious), I dressed in ONE layer of clothes for the first time since last year, and ran for 7 sunrise-filled miles.
I drug my hose out of hibernation and thoroughly washed my car. No sponge bath today!
With it all shiny and clean, I rolled the top down and happily ran my errands. And the celebration of spring didn’t stop there….
Immediately after unpacking the car, I fired up the lawn mower and gave our lush green grass the first cut of the season. This lead to receiving my first sunburn of the year too! Woot!
Hubby met me outside as I was finishing up and mentioned the possibility of a motorcycle ride.
Uh….. YES PLEASE!
I replaced my lawn mowing shoes with my motorcycle boots and off we went. My Shadow purred along, seemingly as happy as I was to be hittin’ the road again.
We passed a sign along the way that read “We have to have winter to appreciate spring.” I’m pretty sure I don’t need winter to help me enjoy days like today.
Only three more years, and I can test the theory for myself.
