spring fever (n):
1) A feeling of restlessness or excitement commonly associated with the approach of spring.
2) An irrepressible urge to go outside and play in the dirt.
3)An excuse for a decrease in productivity surround the advent of spring.
As you might have noticed, I took a wee break from blogging and social media-ing. I’d planned on taking a week or two off to focus on a massive influx of work projects.
Then, two weeks turned into four.
Or something like that.
You know how it goes.
I’d like to blame my absence on a case of Spring Fever and maybe that’s partly so. After all, when I’m not in my dank little work cave (my home office), edumacating my offspring, or plodding away on the WIP (though not as much as I should, shame on me), I’m outside frolicking in the garden.
Okay, maybe not frolicking exactly. Unless you consider pulling weeds, pruning, amending soil and planting frolic. It may not be your idea of frolic but I have an immensely hard time pulling myself away from the garden to come in and do all the other important stuff that needs doing.
I’m calling it Spring Fever.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
And I’m not the only one enjoying spring. Our half husky, half german shepherd, all hurricane pup is having the most fun of all…
Rather than fight spring fever, maybe I should embrace it. Surely we could get just as much working and learning done outside as we could in…right?
Well, maybe not. But we should probably take advantage of the spring weather before summer kicks in. And, since it’s already in the high 80s to low 90s, that’s probably only a couple weeks away. Plenty of time for work and homeschool when it’s scorching out.
Are you in the throes of spring fever? What’s your favorite way to celebrate spring?
