I look at the clock and wonder where my Saturday went. I slept in this morning; it was much need after the first week back from vacation and pretty much every night I was up until at least 10:30. I sat at the breakfast table talking and reading with my husband; a weekend ritual we both enjoy. We just made it to the library to return the movie and books that were due today. I went grocery shopping. I checked email. Now the day is over. I still have laundry to do, a stack of papers to correct, and lessons to prepare for next week.
But day light is lasting longer, the sun is stronger, the air a bit warmer. Spring is on its way, and with it the promise of warm afternoons on the back steps watching the birds, open windows, and flowers.
