Am I strange?

I love daylight savings time - either way it sets the mood for the half year ahead, you know?

Winter is for early evenings, cocooning on the couch and hearty meals... yeah, jammies at 7pm aren't a rare thing in our house when it's cold and dark outside. And now the days are longer, the sun is stronger and WOO! Spring is right around the corner. Love it.

I like seeing the list of spring chores stack up before my eyes.

Makes me feel useful, strong and capable. Plus I'm a sucker for "instant results" and I do like cleaning stuff up, making it pretty and neat. Bye-bye winter crap!

Oh, this is so exciting!

Yes, I know there is more snow on the way, we're only mid-March after all. But days like these does give one hope! Plus the temps are milder now so anything that falls won't stay around too long.

One day at a time.

Tomorrow is going to be just gorgeous: +6C and sunny, almost unheard of this time of year! - so my friend and I are going for a horseback ride around the neighborhood, woohoo! The trails in the woods are impossible to navigate (deep soft wet snow, ice and mud...) so we have to improvise - luckily nobody minds seeing a couple or horses pass by their house.

As I said, the city can kiss my hiney - LOL!
