The First Saturday in Spring

First of all, to fulfill my own Promise for Spring...Elizabeth! You're the winner of Kim Vogel Sawyer's book! Yay! So, email me privately and I'll get that to you...

This is the first Saturday of Spring, and it's a beautiful one. It's the first one in a while where I had absolutely no commitments--no meetings, no family business. Nothing. And there's just something about waking up to an open day. Of course, when faced with the enormous amount of chores waiting to be done, well, it's enough to make you want to go back to bed. But then, how fun is it to have going back to bed as an option!
So, I could have spent the day sorting through the thousands of photographs I inherited from my in-laws' passing, or I could do the the amazing colossal closet switch-over, or I could try to write the 1,000 words I fell short this week...but for some reason breakfast at the Egg and I with girlfriends and a trip to the gym with hubby won out. Tonight, we're eating out again, meeting up with another family. (Good think I worked in the trip to the gym...)
I guess it goes to show that we get little spring days throughout the year. We can wax on and on about the renewal of the season--little green leaves in the trees, pristine new baseball fields--but today's just been one of those days when I feel a little renewal in my spirit. Nothing huge, but just a day to take a few deep breaths and see what can spring forth out of an empty calendar page.
Enjoy the season!!
