It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
February 25th - Goodbye SAD. Hello Spring Fever
All winter long I’m plagued with the SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder disease and now I fear another new but totally different ailment has hit me. Spring Fever! We had a record setting 75 degree day yesterday, but after some thunderstorms passed through last night we are only 39 degrees here this morning.
The warmer sunnier days of the past week brightened my mood and improved my attitude so I must say Spring Fever is not all bad for sure. On the downside all I wanted to do was go outside and work in the yard. But I know winter is not done with us yet, we still have March to get through. So I worked inside and left the leaves in the flower beds as they are. Those tender leaves of the daffodils and tulips that have popped up way too early will need some protection from the snow that usually comes our way.
When it snows again, and it surely will, they’ll keep warm in their cozy bed and so will I. I refuse to get rid of the flannel sheets just yet.
Many of us have asked the question, is it really February? Yes it is, at least for a few more days yet. When Spring Fever strikes, it hits hard and does not discriminate by race, age, or gender. But I for one am not complaining! It’s certainly better than that SAD disease.
Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment.
