Is there a month that you actually look forward to? For me it is March. Maybe because it is a long month, there are 31 days in the month or possibly because I love to share info about the change back to Daylight Savings Time (March 14th btw you lose an hour), but maybe it is because of hope.

Hope you say? Yep hope. I start to see the green or at least what will become green once again from the remnants of snow that are melting away. Hope that warmer temperatures and longer days will soon be upon us.

Hope that I will finally get the garage cleaned out and the garden started earlier this year than last. Hope that this pandemic will end and we can all be surrounded by friends and loved ones in backyard bar-b-ques, outdoor weddings and other celebrations that we have during the spring and summer.
