We might still have some snow on the ground in our part of the country but this week we welcomed Spring with open arms! Even with some cold temperatures around, when Spring officially arrived it was a happy event, more so psychologically if not physically. We can look forward to longer days with sunshine and warmer weather with a change in the clothes we wear, the food we eat and the activities we enjoy.
So how did we welcome Spring this year? A good house cleaning started things off – putting away scarves in the closet, mopping floors that seemed to endlessly track in ice melt this winter, and pruning indoor plants of dead leaves among other things. It is still too cold to pack away turtleneck sweaters, coats and warm comforters but changing out and washing curtains is in order. And with the psychological shift came talk of Spring and summer planning – coming up with vacation ideas, where to spend Easter and saving for new purchases that crop up.
