Welcome Spring

So yesterday was the first day of spring, as per my calendar. Since I live just south of the North Pole, spring doesn't arrive here quite as quickly as it does in other, more temperate climates. But I think that I'm finally seeing signs that the solid grip of winter is being loosened! The snow is slowly melting, what with temps slightly above zero, and I can even see some small patches of grass! Granted, it's dead and brown, but at least it's showing. I'm so thankful for that. I think there are more birds out, and the sun is shining longer every day.

I know that given where I live, there could be more winter to come. But for now, I'm going to enjoy the sunshine and spring weather, and I'm going to soak up some Vitamin D!
