The dogs and I have gotten a bad case of Spring Fever the past couple of days. The daffodils, spirea and forsythia are blooming and the dogs are enjoying the warm sunshine. I realize that winter isn't over, as we historically receive our biggest snowstorms during March, but we're enjoying the spring-like weather while it lasts.
Enjoying the day...
I spent most of the day "trial packing" down coats and vests, turtleneck sweaters, cuddle duds, hats, gloves, scarves, snow boots, etc. for my trip to Anchorage, only 15 days away. I check the 15-day weather forecast for ANC everyday and it looks like I won't need an umbrella during my visit-chuckle!
Enjoying a game of tug of war!
Catching a few rays...
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
