...or cabin fever.
This is the time of year when either option starts to give me the shakes.
After a long winter... feeling cooped up with sickly kids and unable to hike them through the snow in our stroller... I get the stir-crazy twitches.
But after this weekend... I'm getting the spring fever shivers of eagerness!
Much like the optimistic tulips budding up through the cold mud... I peek out in hopes of Spring.
I smell it blooming in the air.
This past weekend was particularly mild (3*C/35*F)... so our family hiked around the neighbourhood. We had just bought Azriel a new pair of rubber boots to fit her this season.
Perfect timing for the puddles (small lakes) now growing around our house!
I kept warning her to look out for whales... she cautiously splashed ahead of us regardless.
I guess this is just that crazy time of year for all of us in the world... half of us are complaining about the winter - the other half (yes, you Aussies!) want summer to end.
Further proof that we humans like to whine often.
Either way, I'm still eager to embrace a new season here!
I can't wait to hike out under the warm sun and let the kids tear around on the green grass.
However, currently the state of our entrance/front lawn is a frightening mud pit. Ick.
Even as a homebody, this mama longs to get out exploring again.
So c'mon down Spring, do your thing... and lets have a fling.
What's the weather like outside your front door?
