welcome to another Random Thursday with Lin, Em and me! We're so happy that you are a part of it. I hope you are all enjoying your week! Almost weekend! yay!
And happy National Farm Animals Day!!
Each year in America an estimated 10 billion farm animals are killed for food. An unfathomable 99 percent of these animals are forced to spend their entire lives confined to factory farms. It is time to change this.
Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons, right after fall. It has been pretty nice here over the last couple of days. Sunshine, warmer weather, lots of flowers and everything is colorful. And here are the things I am especially excited for.
Not freezing to death.
Well, I always have cold feet and freeze when others don't but I guess it is not as bad as in winter. There is a picture of one of my friend's birthday party and everybody wears t-shirts and summer clothes and I wear a scarf. That pretty much says it all I guess. It is definitely nice to not have to freeze as much as usual.
The smell after a spring rain shower.
Can't really describe the smell but I guess you know what I mean - kind of fresh, grassy, clean and pure I would say. Definitely a good one.
Fruits and veggies.
I love fresh fruits and veggies, preferably directly from the garden. So spring is definitely a good time for me. I mean, Spargelzeit (asparagus time) starts in April! When I was a kid we had a huge garden with all kinds of veggies and fruits, it really was like paradise. I just had to go outside and got everything I wanted. I hope I can have that again some day.
Books - just because.
Books are always something to look forward to. No matter if spring, summer, fall or winter. So I have to mention them all year round.
Hearing the birds sing.
I love to wake up and hear the birds sing. It is the perfect way to start a day. Makes you happy immediately.
Wearing ballerinas again.
I think I mentioned these before.
Don't get me wrong, I love my boots. But after months and months of wearing nothing but boots it is nice to be able to wear something else again. Still might wear boots in the evening. Because...you know....cold feet.
What are you looking forward to in spring?
