Today is Earth Day. The first Earth Day, according to Wikipedia, was in 1970. I think it was several years later that I first became aware of its existence. Some Earth Days I plant something to “celebrate” but I’m not planning to do that today. Maybe I’ll pull some Bermuda grass out of the flower beds instead. Or maybe I’ll just go for a walk. It looks like it’s going to be a nice day.
I love/hate spring. I mean, it’s so pretty with all the flowers and the new green leaves on the trees but spring weather is greatly frustrating. It’s warm, then it’s cold, then warm again, then cold, then colder, then warm, then cold. Sometimes all in the same day. Even on a warm spring day it’s cold in the morning. And the house is always slow to warm up. I’ll be puttering around the house shivering in a flannel shirt and then I’ll go outside for some reason and discover that it’s actually ten degrees warmer outside. And this spring has been weird – colder than usual. I normally expect all the cold to be over by the first of May but I’m not so confident about that this year.
I am impatient to start dressing for warm weather. Usually by mid April I have started wearing dresses occasionally but I have not worn one yet this year. Well, I did wear winter dresses with tights a couple of times this past winter, but I mean spring and summer dresses. I should be sewing for spring and summer but this weather has me weirdly motivated to keep on sewing long sleeved shirts.
