It's sunny here today. Which makes it the second sunny day in a row! I believe this sets a record for the month!
Various weather intelligentsia claim we'll reach a blistering mid-60˚s high! Moreover, they predict even warmer weather for tomorrow and fo several days thereafter.
I'm trying to not get my hopes up too much…but could April finally be coming around to acting and feeling like spring?
Apparently the birds and squirrels think so—at least they seem inordinately energetic this morning.
The resident pair of Canada geese have been flying up and down the the river, honking full-volume to beat the band.
Nuthatches, cardinals, bluejays—practically the whole feathered host of dooryard regulars—have been working the seed feeders and the cracked corn I scattered out earlier.
And the squirrels, either the Silly Seven or Nutty Nine (frenzied bushytails being difficult to count) are dashing about, chasing one another, leaping through treetops, and occasionally thundering across the roof like deranged buffalo.
Yup. Spring fever has indeed afflicted everyone—myself included. I awoke in a mood of constructive inspiration. So overcome, in fact, that I'm now fixing to head to Lowe's and procure materials for a backsplash and wall covering for the area over the kitchen sink.
Will wonders never cease!
