Guten Tag From the Land of Fairy Tales!
I think spring has finally sprung…. the little meadow behind our building that only days ago was covered in snow is now green with grass dotted by little white daises and the willow trees are spring green with new leaves. Maybe I’ll get some pictures when I walk the dogs later! The high today was a beautiful 56 degrees… I find it funny how quickly one’s body adapts to weather changes… 59 degrees is the middle of winter back home in Phoenix, AZ while here it’s the warmth of a spring day! We’re simply going to melt when we go home for the wedding! They have been having record breaking heat and have already topped out at 99 degrees in the middle of March!!!
Speaking of the wedding, we leave in 11 short days! I have already begun to make lists and start pulling out things we need. I’m really excited to go home and see everyone again! And I’m so excited for Ryan to get to see everyone for the first time since we moved here.
I have had so much energy the last few days! I’ve been cleaning and cooking and rearranging… spring cleaning I guess. I suppose the light has something to do with it. Just a month and a half ago when Emily was visiting it wasn’t getting light until nearly 9am and it was full dark by 5pm… the whole day was cloudy and the light was just grey. Now a short time later it’s getting light at about 6:30am and it’s not fully dark until almost 8pm! It just amazes me how quickly that change happened! The skies are blue and it’s a blue like I have never seen almost a deep periwinkle! So beautiful and the light is golden and warm… simply exquisite after the long dark of winter.
I think for the first time in my life, I can’t wait for the summer!!!
Well I better get back to dinner (I’m making a layered baked ziti lasagna with garlic bread and fresh green beans!)
