I’ve heard so many people complain about Daylight Saving(s) Time over the last few days it ain’t even proper. I feel left out because I frigfrabbed LOVE daylight… and saving is cool too… but daylight pretty much irons my knickers… and that’s a good thing despite the use of the word irons in that made-up phrase. I so look forward to it every year (the spring version… not the autumn one) because it means that I’ll get more daylight later at night… my heart soars with the eagles’ nest. I don’t care that I’ve lost an hour of sleep and now my ticking time bomb clock is thrown out of whack (I woke up late this morning… sue me…) It just makes me feel all hopeful and dream-full and full of springtime lust… But, most of all it means I made it through the winter.
I ain’t dumb… I know we live in Cache Valley and winter is not over… we’ll probably be getting snow and cold on and off through at least May or June… but it means we’re out of the worst part of it… and that makes me happy as a clam jumped out of the Jumbalaya pot. Did I mention my heart was soaring with the vulture’s nest yet?
It probably helped that this past weekend was the most springfull, beautiful weekend I’ve seen yet… temperatures in the 50s… blue sky… sunshine… oh laws… I have a fever and it’s name is spring! It made me want to run to the store and buy a Sponge Bob kite… and a Girl Scout Cookie (which I did… dang you, Girls and your scouting cookies!)
Madre and I walked the River Walk on Saturday afternoon. The scenery was still ugly… all brown and leafless trees… and seriously, they need to manicure their trees over there… it’s like George of the Jungle had a tree house fire… but then every once in a while we’d hit a clearing and get a glimpse of the beautiful blue mountains capped with white… and it made me happy… and hopeful… and wanting to joint the Girl Scouts just during cookie season. You could use an overgrown soaring vulture’s nest chic, couldn’t you girls? For serious!
Question of the Day: Do you like spring Daylight Saving Time? What is your favorite kind of Girl Scout cookie?
PS… Major congratulations to my cute cuzzin, Jen-Jen and her husband, Seth on the safe arrival of their healthy baby boy today!!! I’m not going to lie… I’ll probably try to steal him! 😛
