The temperature climbed all the way up to 7 degrees C (45 F). That sure is the record for the this year so far. I feel totally starved for sunshine and warmer temperatures so this just felt great.
One of the best things was that I was able to take out and wear my beloved sneakers again. I am amazed that something so simple can fill me with such happiness but it does. I am so done with heavy winter boots. I am a sneaker girl and this is what I would like to wear all around perferabley.
Since the day filled us with happy spring feelings C decided that he would make my bike ready so that I can start to bike to work soon again. My old bike that I used during the fall broke down. The breaks are not very good and I decided to not use it for the spring but instead use my new mountain bike. But since it did not have any fenders that is what C has been adding on. I really love C for taking the time and effort to do things like these for me. It is the small things in everyday life that you do for each other that love is all about.
I decided to take advantage of my new spring happiness and energy as well as keeping C company outside. I cleaned the windows! Now they are crystal clear and now we can really let the sun in. Cleaning the windows really feels like spring. In Alabama we had so many windows on the house that I never even attempted cleaning them. The mere thought of doing about 30 windows exhausted me before I even got started. Here we only have three large windows so the task is much easier. This apartment only has windows facing one direction. I would have liked to have windows facing more than one direction but this will do for now.
So if yesterday felt like spring today the grey weather is back again. All those spring feelings are gone. I therefore decided to at leas start this day by giving us a nice treat for breakfast. We had american pancakes with raspberries and a yummy fruit salad to go with that.
