S. P. R. I. N. G.

S: Sunshine.  Fargo does not have a day in the 10 day forecast with a high below 58 or so.  And some days it's supposed to be in the 70s.  A final goodbye to the long winter we had this year. 

P: Pretty Flowers.  Things just started getting really green around here and the trees are starting to bud.  There's not a lot of color to be found, but I bought some happy Pansies for my walkway up to my door and planted them on Saturday.  Poof, instant happy.

R: Riding.  Geoff and I [gladly] hopped on our bikes this weekend for the first time this year.  We rode somewhere between 30 and 40 miles together on Friday and Saturday and Geoff did another 10 with his scouts Saturday morning.  Our bums are sore, but it's totally worth it.

I: Inching along.  Geoff and I have lots of projects around the house that we want to do this spring and summer, but since things can get expensive really fast, we have to pace ourselves.  First up: I'm getting a new sink and faucet in the kitchen.  We bought the sink and faucet this weekend.  Now it just has to be installed.

N:  Nests.  The birds are out in full force.  They've been around for a month or more now, but they are singing exceedingly glad tidings that the freezing temps have ceased and that they can, again, dig for worms.  We have 6-7 trees on our lot and I'm keeping an eye out for nests to watch our little bird friends grow their families. 

G: Grass.  We are going to be buying a used lawnmower shortly, but the grass has finally reached that fantastic shade of spring green we get out here.  I love opening my blinds wide and looking out at the front and backyard at the quickly growing, happy green grass.
