She laid on her couch, wrapped up in a soft blanket as she watched the rain hit the bay window in her living room. The pitter-patter of the drops against the glass was the soundtrack for her afternoon and she sighed, content.

The door opened and closed, sending a cool breeze through the house. She raised her head as she heard someone kick off their shoes, muttering under their breath. “I feel like a drowned rat,” her husband called out.

“All you need is some dry clothes,” she replied, not bothering to look up. She remained focused on the window.

He walked into the room and kissed her forehead. It sent a shiver through her body as his icy skin brushed against hers. “You need something warm,” she said.

March Madness

It is March.

It is almost spring.

It can’t come soon enough. This winter has been tough. The polar vortex. Snowstorm after snowstorm. Cabin fever has set in. To borrow and adapt from the musical “Mame”: We need a little spring right now.

I love the seasons where there is a change, like the fall. Spring brings warmer temperatures. The leaves come back. So do the bugs. (Not my favorite part). The days get longer. And then the ice cream truck comes back. Don’t lie—you know you get excited when you hear that familiar song.

I’m looking forward to spring. And just because my birthday is in the spring. Winking smile To not feeling cold even when the heater is on. And before it gets too hot to function away from an air conditioner as well. Hopefully, I’ll get a lot of writing done! Smile 

I also hope to get some inspiration. I usually do when the seasons change. We’ll see.

Continuing my series, what’s in store for Kate and Matt this month? Find out!

A soft breeze ruffled Kate’s hair as they walked along. Stormy was once again asleep in her basket but this time, Matt carried it. The cat had taken to the man and it did ease her burden.

Kate closed her eyes, enjoying the next breeze that blew by. “It’s so beautiful out.”

“I know. Though it didn’t feel cold yesterday.”

Opening the Window…

Winter has gone on forever, it seems. But some warm weather finally came our way around Easter. And Easter Friday, I could open my bedroom window.

I love the first time I can open my bedroom window as it’s one of the harbingers of spring. The warm breeze blowing my door shut. Fresh air blowing away the stale winter air. The smell of fresh air filling my room and lingering. Oh, it’s great.

Springtime in New York City

I love the spring. Who doesn’t? Okay, maybe some people don’t like the spring for various reasons, allergies being chief among them.

So why do I love the spring? Many reasons, the first being that I’m a spring baby. Born on April Fool’s Day, around Easter. (That’s my favorite holiday as well).
