A Touch of Spring Fever!


Today was an exceptional day! The sky was vivid blue, the sun was out, it was not warm, but a little warmer than it has been. Above freezing in any case, and I felt a burst of energy and general sense of well being that I haven't felt in some long dark cold months. I was very productive and happy, singing and flying through a bunch of tasks. I even let my mind wander to the days of the not very distant future when I can get my little convertible out of hibernation and go for a drive, a picnic, fly a kite! Dare I dream of such things?


This has been a long winter for me, and I feel it's heaviness, like one of those lead blankets you wear when they x-ray your teeth, lifting from my body, from my spirit! Spring! Come get me! I'm ready!

Nice car!

kj, Thanks! :)

theweyrd1, Thanks. It's fun to drive and everybody smiles and waves at you when you're in it. It's really funny. Last summer I took a friend of mine for a spin, and she was amazed at how friendly everyone was. She said, "Next time I ride in this car, I'm bringing some hard candy to throw to people."

You HAVE a convertible? I thought you just had the bike. WOW - nice toys girl!

RED MOJO said...

tsduff, Thanks. I think I might say goodbye to Lucille this spring. I don't have time for her anymore. I do love that car though.

What? I have not even seen Lucille in person.

RED MOJO said...

Ces, I know, but she's feeling neglected, and I could use the money. :(

You know, I've been considering the same fate for my Sporty - would miss her but dang, I have not ridden her much since losing my husband. My Bear doesn't have a bike. Selling her is almost too hard to think about though.
