Favorite things to do in the Spring is today’s blogging topic.
Can I just say this: I love Spring!!!
I live in New England, where winter can be 6 months long.
Not kidding…not even a little.
One year we had snow on Halloween and then in May, which is my birthday month, we still had snow on the ground.
Do you know how depressing that can get? Even to hibernators and introverts and cold intolerants like me??
As soon as I see a crocus trying to sprout its way through the dead grass, I start to get happy because that means winter is ending. Yay.
So, when the weather finally does get good ( and before allergy season annihilates me), my favorite spring thing to do is take long walks with my husband.
Now for some people that may seem the height of boring with a capital B! But his life is sosos busy and the fact he works 13-14 hour days and weekends means we don’t get to spend a great deal of time together that doesn’t involve sleeping in the same bed or eating dinner together. On Sundays, we walk into and around town. We start at the down town center:
Walk along the business section:
And stop at a few places to visit with people we see who we know:
During those walks, hubby and I reconnect, talk about what’s going on in our lives, coming up for us, and plan.
And yes, we even sometimes hold hands while we are walking! Shocking, I know.
Ah, Spring.To quote Mark twain,
“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
