open wide and say "ahhhh"

today is a day i look forward to, and then relish, every spring. it's the first day to open up windows and doors and allow fresh air to flow through the place, forcing out the stale, musty air of that's been shut in tight for far too long. it's 60° outside as i take this picture through the open screen door. birds are singing, trees are budding, and the spring air smells so refreshingly wonderful - outside and in!

I know, I've had my front and back doors open, just to let the air circulate.

It's lovely to be able to take a deep breath without coughing in the cold!

Lynne said...

Oh yes, open windows and doors - wonderful.

Perhaps I shouldn't tell you I can do that almost all year round here.

Linda said...

I agree, those first days of open doors and windows are glorious. Enjoy.

Oh yes, I've been able to do that off and on for a few weeks, It's lovely, isn't it? Sometimes it's just a bit too cold, though, and I have to turn on the heater again. Not this weekend. It was lovely. Hurray!

and here I've had to open the windows to cool the house down! it's always strange to read about such different weather on the same dates...

It's what's called a "Breath of Fresh Air!" and I love it, too!

I know you're glad to feel some warm weather after all that snow I see in your pictures below!
It was 90 degrees here in Alabama this past weekend!
