Friday Five - So Ready for Spring!!

Yeah, I know what Punxsutawney Phil said.  

But I try not to pay too much attention to Yankees.
Even furry ones.

Now General Beauregard Lee... He's got it goin' on!!
He predicted (by not seeing his shadow) an early spring for the South.
Thank. You. Jesus.  (And Beau, too, I guess!)

So here's my list of why I am SO READY for spring!!!
  1. I need to get back to my daily walks --- Oh, I know some of y'all bundle up and go get your miles in, despite the frigid temps... but not this Chick.  It's just too dang cold for my delicate nature.
  2. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I tell you what, us Reeders have just had a time of it lately.  Especially my poor Sambo.  I'm ready to throw open some windows and air this sucker out!!! Best disinfectant ever... Fresh air and SUNSHINE!!
  3. Speaking of sunshine... I need a tan!!!  Put numbers one and two together and you'll see the mathematical equation for my exercise and fitness success so far in 2015.  That's right.  A BIG FAT GOOSE EGG!  I mean, if I can't burn the fat cells off and tone my muscles, at least I can get a golden bronzed camouflage!! 
  4. My yard looks like death warmed over.  Winter is so, well, brown.  And boring.  I feel the need to bathe my eyes in the aesthetic beauty of some Petunia Wave hanging baskets, Elizabethan Ferns, and potted Geraniums!!  Not to mention the beautiful blooms of my Azaleas and Knock-out Roses... Come on Spring... Bring on your color!
  5. My toes are itching to get into some water... and yeah, I guess my a- ahem, that is, my derriere would like to be in the sand, too!!  Meaning: I NEED ME SOME BEACH THERAPY!! There just ain't nothing like walking down the strand, sunshine on my shoulders, with flip-flops in one hand, and the other wrapped around the strong arm of My Man. And don't even get me started on what a moonlight stroll on the beach will cure! ;-)
So yes ma'am.  I'm ready for SPRING. 

Trouble is, here in South Carolina, spring is rare and short-lived.  Before you know it I'll be complaining about the heat and longing for the beautiful colors and cooler temps of autumn... yet another southern enigma.

Oh, well...
I'd still rather live down here in the Sunny (if hot as hell) South, than up there with them Yankee folk. And Phil.

Happy Friday, Y'all!!!
