The First Thaw
I absolutely love the first thaw of the year and ours came in Lexington yesterday. It's a day where neighbors leave their homes and start tending to their yards. Children fill the park with laughter and tears over their first skinned knee. You see shiny new bikes passing by, evident of Santa's generousity. I can almost feel my vitamin D supply regenerating. Babies get to have their first swing on the playground. Families are out walking again. Vehicles suddenly shine and seem to smile at the hosing away of winter's salt. This is a day of rejuvination! So fill up those propane tanks, gather your spring cleaning supplies, and search for your favorite sun hat because spring will be here soon...and I love it!
