We have taken to celebrating birthdays over the course of 7 days.... yes we have "Birthday Week", and it's become quite the way to also usher in spring. February was a banner month for snowfall with a record breaking total of 37.3 inches. You can understand why "Birthday Week" is such a necessity after that much snow. Along with all that snow is the sunny-day deficit. We also have a shortage of sun in the winter, so when my birthday week was 5 full days of sunshine and 40 degrees, I was out enjoying every minute.... I smelled the roses... I jumped rope(in the sunshine with no help from Bobby )... fabric shopping.... knit my socks and a Farmer's Market extravaganza.. All in all, a splendid week... Spring fever I certainly do have... but I am rejuvenated.
