Smack in the Middle of Winter

The sunrise was beautiful
that mid-February day
when Charlie and I went
on an early morning walk.

And the sun just shone brighter,
and the sky turned bluer,
and the air grew warmer,
until it reached a sunny 68 degrees!

A record was set that caused
the robins to sing and the breeze to gently whisper.
It encouraged the daffodils to pop out of the ground,
and the earth smelled like Spring.

Charlie snoozed on the porch,
and we opened the window
while we paintedΒ and pounded
wearing light t-shirts.

It was a beautiful Spring day…
smack in the middle of winter.

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. We had a sunny day last Friday and my Jack basked in it. Cats always seem to find the sunny places. And it sounds like Charlie does too! Cheers to a Springlike day in the middle of winter! It gives us hope for Spring! β˜€οΈπŸŒ·

    • Oh no! I’m sitting on a chaise lounge in bare feed and short sleeves with a book and iced teas on a Sunday afternoon in February. Miracles? Blessings? Global wArming? Mother Nature ? Whatever it is. I’m thankful. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘β˜€οΈ

  2. Lovely, Jodi! We are enjoying a bit of unexpected springtime here, too! It lightens our hearts and energizes our souls. Just yesterday, while enjoying sunshine out on the front porch, ‘Garden Fever’ struck…. right out of the blue! Springtime is just around the corner. I can feel it! β™‘
