This morning, I woke up in such a great mood, even though my 4-year-old woke up super early herself. I didn't get far into my daily devotion and Bible study homework but my good mood sustained itself. The next thing I knew, the sun was shining, I had an overabundance amount of energy and I was cleaning the house. The beds got stripped all the way to the mattress, base boards got dusted and I even cleaned out the lint and dog hair out from underneath the dryer. I don't know what got into me... oh wait, I do! The sunshine. Glory be! This sunshine is like a drug to me. So as I was running the sweeper, I completely missed the spot in the kitchen where ants have gathered. (Ants are a sore spot for me; that's a story for another time.) I decided to spread some ant bait outside and noticed new Spring growth from my flowers and plants in the garden.

I was outside in my bare feet and short sleeves. Uh.... it's February 1st today. I even cracked a few windows to air out the house.
The Farmer's Almanac predicted a mild winter this year for our region. They weren't kidding! Only a couple of snowfalls that barely covered the ground and so much sun, it's hard to believe it's winter right now. The only problem with this up-and-down weather is the amount of viruses and flu going around. I'm sure this fresh air will come right back and kick me in the ass but oh, it will be worth experiencing fresh air in the middle of winter.
