Sounds and Smells

The calendar still says February, but it sure is starting to smell and sound like spring. I notice the smell each morning when I step out to get the newspaper off the front porch. This morning it was particularly noticeable. I haven’t looked at the forecast, but it smelled like the start of a beautiful day.

And then there are the sounds. Birds, mainly. Last night Robbie and I stared upwards at a rather large and noisy flock of geese flying north over the house. And I have noticed more general bird chatter, the sort of chatter you curse when you’re trying to fall asleep with the windows open.

I’m still rooting for one more good snow storm, but after playing in the yard with Robbie last night—including a wild ride over the grass on the sled he got for Christmas—I sure won’t mind the arrival of spring.

Mmmmm nothing like the smell of pork being processed.  It is much better now that the beef jerky plant closed down though.

The nice weather has made the rides to work more enjoyable.  If the crocuses pop out soon I would hope the weather stays nice enough to not freeze them.

I heard some roumors that there may be some snow tomorrow night.  Perhaps there will be just “one more good snow storm” for you.
