i don't know why i say goodbye // i say hello

or alternately titled: signs of spring.
the sun is coming up earlier, igniting my yellow bedroom walls with flares and flashes of light. it sets later, and as it does the sky turns into a cascade of pinks and blues and oranges and purples, melting together with the perfect hue. the days seem longer even though they hold the exact same number of hours and minutes as usual. i hate to say goodbye to winter, but i think it's about time to say hello to spring.

so, maybe for some of you spring is teasing your senses. 70º one day and 26º the next? i know texas weather is outrageous but for some of you it's over the top. i know you've had it with the snow and you're about ready to have a short sleeved, sandaled picnic in a field. even though spring is quite muggy for us texans, i think i'm ready for it, too. it's time for the new leaves to take their bloom. the rain drips off the blades of grass and the blossoms give off their sweet scent. time to look for a new wardrobe. accumulate some recipes. await the april showers that precede may flowers.

i hate to say goodbye to winter, for reasons that mostly concern the temperature changes, but hello spring. nice to see you again.

    A sign of spring that is always the most notable for me is the sun coming up earlier. I get up at 5:30am four times a week, so seeing it get lighter and lighter every morning is something that stands out. :)

    And now, i have that beatles song stuck in my head. (:

  7. Hunger games!!! I am so excited!

    i am so excited about this spring, whenever the sun stays up longer, that's a sure sign for me!

  8. THG! Omg yes!! Gah. crazy excited!!
    And...just to let you know. I'm not dead. I've just been crazy busy and not with my computer much lately. (stupid history test and research paper for comp.) But I'll probably post tomorrow and be on Skype tomorrow too! Just letting you know that I'm not dead. ;)

  9. ah! yes. i just posted about stopping kony. how is it that everyone seems to be all of a sudden talking about him today?
