Remember that day in school, when the teacher would finally open the windows while you were at lunch and you came back to the classroom to fresh warm air billowing in and it smelled like springtime and freedom? Then you spent the whole afternoon staring out the window, just waiting for the bell to ring so you could run outside and play with your friends? That is how today feels.
I am writing this blog, then doing some cleaning, and the truth is I just want to play hooky and go outside and play.
I want to play in my garden. I situated my indoor garden last week, and a couple of the friends in there need to head on out to the porch, which I intend to put together this weekend. I also am in process of murdering some weeds in my front garden while waiting for my perennials to sprout.
I want to go fishing. I have been several times this year already but haven’t caught anything. I want to go down to my favorite spot and plant my chair and cast my new pole and see if some little fishy is venturing up towards the sunlight, like me.
I want to go camping. I am making that a reality this year. I want it to be my birthday so we can roll off to the woods for the weekend and spend our time celebrating with family and friends. I want to go hiking and cook my food on a campfire and lay down under the stars.
I want to have a barbeque. This is always one of the first true signs of warmer days for me. I want to get hot dogs and hamburgers and fire up the grill and have a cold beer.
I want to be outside.
Today it is supposed to get to a record 80 degrees here in Buffalo, and I just want to run outside and play.
So yeah…short blog. Go play.
