I left the house for sam’s club this morning at 6:50. (I needed to get back before Steve had to leave for work) and as I was driving down the street, I had this giddy feeling of anticipation for Spring. The sun was so bright, the roads were clear of snow, and if I didn’t have the radio host telling me it was 22 degrees, I would’ve thought it was much warmer.
I can’t describe how good it was to see the sun.
I think I had butterflies for a few seconds.
Oh, what a good feeling. It energized me this morning. I was a cleaning/organizing fool. I couldn’t be stopped. In fact I got a little warm while I was working in the house and I changed to a short sleeved shirt. I ran outside to remove the trash, (still in my short sleeve shirt) and it felt warm. It felt good. I haven’t felt the warmth of the sun in such a long time. I can’t stop smiling just thinking about it!
I checked the temperature when I came in…34 degrees. How can 34 degrees feel good? Warm even? It’s official. I’ve become acclimated to Wisconsin- it’s in my blood. 34 degrees feels so good. Really good. I just hope it stays.
I know what you mean!! Today was the first sunny morning we've had in a long while! It feels so energizing! Wow, your Sam's club opens early. Costco needs to get on the bandwagon (they don't open until 10 or some crazy time like that!)
I felt the exact same way… we are definitely acclimated. And, it ain't such a bad thing!
By the way, I would like an invite when you go private! I think you have my email. If not…let me know on my blog.
Oh I remember living there (barely) and anything over 29 degrees was finally super warm!!! That is…you don't have to wear a hat or gloves to run in to the grocery store or out in the garage to get something out of the car. 🙂 Happy Spring!
That's hilarious…same thing happened to me yesterday. 40 degrees and I was sweating in my house while blow drying my hair. It was great!
I was going through the same exact thing just the other day! How in the world can 34 degrees feel warm. I was thinking "the snow is melting, I don't even need my warm coat!"
