It is just marvelous outside today. After more than a month of down-pouring rain, God has blessed us with sunshine and warmth. The grass is lushly soft, the air is crisp yet bright, and everything just seems to sparkle in the sun; even the stores are starting to sell their first flowers. This is a nice break from the gray skies I have become so accustom to. I have doubt the weather will stay like this for long, so for now I am headed outdoors to enjoy a bit of the winter's spring air.
