Let the Sunshine, Let the Sunshine In

Poached eggs over wheat English muffins and turkey bacon, side of zucchini. Nothing new to see here for breakfast today but finally we're seeing some new buds on the trees and beautiful flower boxes going up. People are replacing the thawed dog poop and garbage out of their sidewalk planters with daffodils and tulips. I'd say that was a good sign.

I keep wanting to write 'spring is finally here' but to be honest, it smells and feels much more like November to me. Like its ready to start getting colder and we still have the sun but you want to run home and put on a warm sweater. Not all of the trees bloomed, like the one right outside my window. Instead its going into some sort of droopy in-between leaf stage. Where its supposed to go from pink flowerettes to maroon leaves, it skipped all of that and now has these fall colored orangy brown things. And its really crisp out, not melty sunny like spring can be. Yeah, I'm going on record to say its weird out! Is the weather changing in stranger ways then even I could ever imagine???
