This Is Where It All Begins

Wednesday, April 22, 2009


I LOVE having all four seasons, and I hope to always be able to live in a place with all four seasons. I like each one with the weather it brings. I am happy to see a new season come, and when it is time, I am glad to see it go and have a change of weather.
If I had to live the rest of my life in only one type of weather though, it would be what we have had the past few days. PERFECT!!! Wow, it has been gorgeous and soooooo nice. And of course, it is the perfect running weather.
My perfect weather is somewhere between 65-80 degrees. With a warm afternoon sun and a nice nip in the air at night and early morning. Green grass, flowers, ect. Not too hot (I am such a wimp with heat..Arizona would be my version of the offense to anyone) and not too cold. Perfect! And that folks, is what we are experiencing. I LOVE IT! It cracks me up that just a few days ago, we had a 5 1/2 foot snowman in our front yard, and yesterday Mary was in her pool in a swimsuit. It is great!
I do like the warmer temps for waterskiing and swimming, and I love the snow, because I just love it. Therefore, I am so grateful for all the seasons. For now, I am just going to bask in the sunny goodness Colorado Springs is giving us...and be grateful.
Of course, like everyone else, I have tons of pictures of my kids in the pool, the sandbox, on the swingset, ect., and I will post them soon, but I am content for now, to just say that I am loving the weather and my kids being able to play outside for hours on end. AAHHHHH, welcome spring....for now.
p.s. To top it off, the kids had a blast at playgroup today at the park, and so did I. What better than to bask in the sun with great friends. Lunch afterwards with a few of the peeps was the icing on the cake. What a fun day!

I am TOTALLY with you on the weather!!! It's been getting into the 70s this week, and I've been thinking, "Oh man, it must be 90 degrees outside!"
