Today, the Equinox, makes us all somewhat equal. Theoretically, all locales on this terrestrial ball receive 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. I don't suppose that this is exactly true, for Old Sol must hover over the equator at a very specific moment before continuing north. However, it's substantially true enough, and it is also true that the day for which we in the colder climes have been yearning is upon us. Officially, it is spring.
If you have been following the blogs of many Canadians and also of the more northern-dwelling Americans, you have, no doubt, noticed a tremendous longing for spring lately. What surprised me to some degree was to read that megz_mum from the land Down Under was quite looking forward to the changing of the seasons: the cessation of torrid summer heat and beginning of more moderate autumnal temperatures. I guess that pretty well proves that we all look forward to changes.
While I greatly appreciate that this is a pivotal day foreboding warmer weather and the bursting forth of life, I am also pretty darn mindful that real spring weather has not yet followed the sun, not for us anyway. By the same token, however, I have also been witnessing the waning of winter for the past week or two. Indeed, its grip has been loosening. Even when it has been cold, as it has been in the past week, there is a different feeling in the air.
Whatever your take on the seasons, and regardless of my rumblings and ramblings, it is time to lighten up, and I have done so with my blog template. I hope you like the look. I do, but, when I completed Cuppa's, I thought that I might prefer her version even more.
Ladies and gentlemen, I wish you ...
