Treasuring the warmer weather

Happy Small Treasure Tuesdays with Chantel!    My small treasure this week is the weather.  Here in Indiana we've had a pretty crappy winter so far this year (and I'm afraid mother nature may not be done with us), so I'm really stoked  that this week we're getting temperatures in the 50s.  I mean, that's balmy compared to the negative degree windchills we had last week.  Dare I say I might just wear a jacket to work and not a huge coat? 

On Sunday, T and I actually ventured outside to walk on the path by our house, with a sweatshirt and no coat no less!).  It was mostly clear, though some of was covered in ice.  We did get a couple inches of ice under the snow so it's only natural it's going to take some time.  But I'm really excited that we're finally going to get rid of all the white stuff and clear shiny stuff that makes my car dirty and makes me slip on my way into work.  (I'm not a fan of winter, if you can't tell...)

The nice weather is giving us the light at the end of the tunnel and getting me excited for spring.  I love spring - flowers blooming, green grass, blue skies, Easter, my birthday, and...we'll be moving into our house in April or May!  All this optimism steming from a little temperature change?  This totally isn't like me at all.

What are you excited about this week?  See what other small treasures people have to share at Chantel's blog!


  1. Good weather here too in MD! I think it will get up to 65 on Friday! I am so excited as well... makes me want to play hooky on Friday just to be able to enjoy it instead of being stuck in my windowless office. :-) Enjoy your week!

  2. Today I went out for lunch and it was sunny! It was truly amazing - I'd forgotten how awesome the sun is!

  3. I wish it was like that here in Canada! Today it's in the -24 range and that is in Celcius (0 C is 32F)! Plus we have snow about 5-6 ft high! That is in the parts where snow has not been interrupted with wind drifts or plows! I'll put it to you this way, some snow banks are up as tall as a stop sign!

    The sad part is that it will be like this for another month or two where I am.


  4. I am craving spring soooo hard, I can't even describe it. I'm yearning for it in ways I never have before.

    This week I'm grateful for an exciting job which I will hopefully be able to report tomorrow on my blog! We'll see! *fingers crossed*

  5. Oh you lucky gal! It was slightly warmer here today, but the weather report says it will snow tomorrow or Friday. I'm not a fan of that!

    I'm also so looking forward to spring. And I'm so excited for you, about getting to move into your house in a matter of months. That's so great!

    Thank you so much for linking up :-) You're awesome.
