Spring Fever

The snow, ice, and cold are getting to me us. And sitting in Arizona with bright sunshine and green grass popping up in the ditches isn’t helping any! I keep sitting here thinking that when I get home I’m going to go out and start digging and planting!

And then I slowly come back to reality, the reality that there is 3 feet of snow coving my gardens right now… ugh!

And I’m betting with this last storm that has rocked the nation, a good share of you feel the same way!

We’ve all been stuck inside for way too long this winter, so last week while I was home, we had to go outside. Never mind that it was only +12 degrees above zero and bone chilling damp out– it still felt good!

The girls and boy followed me everywhere I went; up to the house, over to the truck shed, and I really think they enjoyed my company as much as I enjoyed theirs!

The girls picked on any available brown, dried out grass they could find like they had just won the lottery and we all enjoyed the outdoors. Are you ready for spring?

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~Mark Twain



Bethany About Bethany

I am a prisoner of the highway, farmer and lover of Mother Nature, the moon and stars, my long and low, flat-top Peterbilt, chickens, cats, dogs, horses, cooking, photography, tattoos, tea pots and vintage barnifacts…among other things. I’m also a very, happily married, third-generation truck driver. My career choice is both demanding and rewarding, just like most things in life that are truly good.
