Are you glad?

Even though Mother Nature is up to no good in New England, it is Spring.  Today's Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Reasons to Be Glad It's Spring.... so here we go.

 1. Longer days. It's awfully nice to still have daylight when I get out of work.

2. Robin eggs.  I love discovering new eggs in the nests and keeping an eye on the babies as they hatch.

Smile3. Sheep & Wool Festivals. Who doesn't love to spend some spring weekends outside fondling handspun yarn and furry creatures?

4. Chocolate Bunnies. What better way to take your winter frustrations out than to bite the ear off a chocolate bunny?

5. NASCAR.  Although the season actually starts while it's still winter, I still think of it as Spring...

6. Local Racing.  In karting, Matt's season always started in May, but the Legends series starts in April.  Are we ready for practice on April 2... not quite yet!
Tut_winow_8107. Open windows.  Letting out all that stale air that's collected inside all winter.

Bunny8. Removing a Seasons Greetings slab from the front door and replacing it with Peter Cottontail...

9. Sandals.  Time to get those sandals & flip flops out and let our feet breath!

10. A wet basement... not! My most unfavorite thing about spring!

Zeus doesn't look too sure about the blue car parts...

My favorite thing about spring is whenever it finally gets here! Even though I know it's just a date on the calendar page, I always wish the vernal equinox would bring me a little green and some flowers!

Great list! I love that you included Sheep & Wool Festivals. I've never been to one, but I'd sure love to go. Maybe this will be my year :-)

Doh! How can I forget sheep and wool festivals.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Happy ToT to you too.

Mmm...chocolate bunnies. My favorites are the hollow kind. Hope the basement problems get better.
