The calendar says it arrived today, anyway. Today we had a high of 55 degrees and a low of 32. Still cooler than normal for this time of year, but at least it’s sunny and no snow is visible. Just the fact that the calendar said “Spring Equinox” for today was enough to put Leive in a good mood, probably the first good mood I’ve seen from her in months. At one point today, I was here in the basement, putting the last touches on a PowerPoint presentation, and I heard her shout “Hallelujah!” from the top floor of the house. Yes, her time of the year is arriving; I bet she can’t wait for the grass to turn green and the flowers to come out.
