In Like A Lion Or A Lamb?

Happy First of March everyone! For those of you counting down the days, Daylight Savings Time begins on March 14th, St. Patrick's Day is on March 17th and it's officially 19 days until Spring arrives on March 20th! (Brenda, that's for you!)

It is a Gorgeous, albeit very gusty, morning here at the Jersey Coast, which leads me to wonder if that means March is coming in like a Lion (gusty winds) or like a Lamb (stunning blue skies & sun)? Perhaps both! At 9am this morning, it was 65 degrees in the sun on our patio! (38 degrees elsewhere). Windows are cracked open all over the house.

Either way, faster than Spring will arrive, the Ides of March will be here; March 15th, the anniversary of Julius Caesar's murder. In Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," Caesar was warned to "Beware the Ides of March". We all know how Brutus made that warning an omen.

I've got some fun and not so fun things on today's to-do list like laundry, writing, finishing up bookmarks for the Chicks on Lit 2nd Anniversary Bookmark Swap, reading (hopefully, for book clubs & for me) and catching up on my in-box. What are your plans this day?

What a great day for a wedding anniversary Sherry! A very (early) Happy Anni to you!

The foodstore may happen tomorrow, but not today, lol!

This Winter is helping me to appreciate the coming of Spring and I'm excited unlike recent years!

Yikes--I just did a little squeal when I realized how close we are to spring and daylight savings time. I do believe I'm going to make it through this awful winter!

Jo said...

-->I'm so ready for Spring so we can move some compost, til and plant the garden. My daffodils are showing the tulips are just popping through. I have hope!
