Stefani makes a spring day. In January. In Alberta. I think we are experiencing our very first chinook. It is warm in Olds. Has been all week. The sun is shining and the snow has begun to melt. You can see pavement on the roads and sidewalks again. People are driving with their car windows down. Shops and homes have their front doors and windows propped open. People are out and about. I went for a walk this afternoon and had to keep reminding myself to walk slow or I would overheat in my winter jacket. I could have worn my jean jacket. Really. I found us a blue hyacinth at the grocery store. A little bit of spring to bring inside of the house. This little bit of spring is a nice, but I do miss winter.
