Goodbye Winter!

I've been infected with a severe bout of spring fever, but never fear, I hear it's not lethal.  Might be contagious though, so watch out!  One of the symptoms is looking at dirty windows and thinking there's no use washing them.  It might rain and they'd get all spotted again.  And of course it would make no sense to wash the blinds and curtains with spotty windows.  Hopefully recovery will come soon.  I sure wouldn't want to be washing windows when it gets to be 90 degrees!  Another symptom is this overpowering urge to go dig in the dirt and plant something, even though it's still way frosty in the early mornings.  My daffodils are shooting up though, and the robins are busy, so at least something is moving here!

In the mean time, I'm loving the sunshine and fresh air.  Even rainy days are a welcome change from snow and ice.  Still watching the eagles and thanks Tom, for the link to another site.  This one is at Norfolk, VA Botanical Gardens.  The pair of eagles have 3 young eaglets, the latest hatched Thursday the 17th.  No, it wasn't green!  :O)  The main video is live, but there are links to recorded clips of special activities on the page.  It is really fun to see the little bobble heads when Mom and Dad exchange places on the nest or stand to feed them.
Here's the link to this other site:

Well, here goes.  I'm going to try to accomplish some actual housework.  Doing it in my head is becoming a bit tiresome!  But then again, there's always tomorrow when it will officially be spring!

"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!"  ~Mark Twain
