So what was it? Actually, it’s more like what wasn’t it? It wasn’t dark! There was some daylight left, and as I walked to my car I glimpsed the sun just beginning to drop below the horizon. It doesn’t sound like much, but for someone like me who only sees the light of day on weekends all winter long, it’s cause for celebration!
Today was a picture-perfect day here in the Pacific Northwest. The sky was blue and the sun was shining, I even saw someone driving a convertible with the top down!
I observed a couple of other things this afternoon that also made me do a little internal happy dance. My grocery store was selling daffodils! The bright yellow flowers literally scream “spring” don’t they?
And finally, on the way home I saw a flock of geese……flying north!
I know it’s only January and we’re still a long way from the official change of the seasons, but I’m thinking spring!
