spring fever

Today was glorious.  Temperatures in the mid-70s and sunny.  Crazy stuff.  It's the middle of February.  In case you forgot, this is what the middle of February looked like last year...

So how do you celebrate this little gem of a day?  You buy a case of beer and throw some burgers on the grill, that's what you do!

(Yes, that's our snow shovel propped up against the landing. It is February, after all.)

For the record, Spring arrives in exactly 30 days.  I've already started a Spring To Do list and am planning our garden.  How about you?  Are you looking forward to Spring as much as I am?


  1. i'm so ready for spring!!! it comes early in Georgia. my daffodils are already blooming.

  2. Our weather is upside down this year too. It's summer, but has been pouring with rain!

  3. I am so ready for spring! I need warm grass...and a lawn mowing service :)

  4. Now why didn't I think to grill yesterday when it was warm enough? I love taking a walk through my neighborhood on a summer evening and smell all the grilled food cooking. (I'm so easy to please!)

  5. we had the same weather and did the same thing about five days ago! the chilly weather has returned along with some rain, but it was a wonderful tease of what is yet to come!
    and yes--i'm making my list!

  6. Well you have cheered me up by reminding me that we have just been enjoying a false Spring. :(
    It snowed here in March last year, normally unheard of!!!

  7. Ready for Spring here too! And the 70 degree weather this year? Welcomed here but kind of awkward in a way. We weren't sure what to do! Plus everyone was sick, so we all just kind of marveled at the weather from indoors, with windows open. :)
    p.s. Your house is really cool. I love it. :)

  8. I thought spring was here too, but then it dumped snow on us today. Boo! So ready for some sunshine, BBQing and lounging around outsite
    Stopped over from the Monday blog hop, have a great one!

  12. you had me in a mad scroll to your profile as I would've sworn that your neighborhood is within shouting distance of mine. Not so, I'm afraid. I'm about 1800 miles to the west. Oh well...

    Good to be following you!
    p.s. we had the SAME grill out last weekend too. And now we're paying for it :-)

  13. Your February of Last year looks like my february this year!
