LinkStuff – Spring Is Here (Again)

Spring is finally here and it’s so much easier to do activities outside with the kids.  Mitts, hats, scarves, heavy coats, winter boots can all go into storage.  Of course my daughter still insists on a hat and gloves, but I think it’s more of a fashion thing. 🙂

Spring may be here but we needed the shovel in Alberta for the dump of snow that came last night! Thanks for including me Mike. always appreciated!

Thanks for the link Mike! I put my shovel away too, only to wake up to a foot of snow this morning. Sadly after all that hard work shovelling, the snow melted later in the day. I should have just slept in this morning and none of that would have happened 🙂

Thanks for the mention Mike! I can’t believe how quickly spring sprung here: I was out in shorts on the weekend, and earlier last week it was snowing!

@Jim – Time to hit the slopes!

@Echo – Now you know for next time.

@Potato – Yes, the weather has been up and down in Toronto as well.

@Mark – Thanks.

@Lily – Glad you enjoyed the meditation.
