I forgot to wish everyone a Happy Spring last week. Happy Spring!! (seven days late…). Sorry.. I think that I forgot because we are having a very chilly and winter-like spring here in Minnesota.
I was bundled up and shivering as I drove to visit my niece and her mom last Wednesday morning on that first day of spring. It was only 5 degrees out! The following morning it was not much warmer, only 9 degrees. It is finally warming up a bit and is actually 43 degrees out this afternoon—this is considered almost a heat wave here for us hardy Minnesotans. I went for a short walk with my husband and dog Jonah but still had to brave a lot of slippery ice and big melting puddles on the path. Jonah didn’t like getting his paws wet either and did his best to walk around the puddles. We may reach the low 50’s on Friday and Saturday before cooling back down into the 30’s and 40’s again. But I can guarantee you there will be people out in t-shirts despite all the snow.
