Sit your butt down and enjoy this weather

Normally, there's no way I would be thinking about outdoor seating in March in Minnesota.  Last year at this time we were buried under several feet of snow and hadn't seen the grass in about 5 months.

But that was then.

This weekend, we ate meals outside.  We walked to the Falls and collected supplies to build a fairy house.  We aired out our own house and padded barefoot on wood floors.  We enjoyed the breezes, and the playgrounds, and the ice cream dessert my 5 year old orchestrated for Saint Patrick's day.  (As an aside I would like to mention that my mother, married to a true Irish lad, dressed the table with an Irish flag tablecloth.)

Right about now, the sales cycle that puts outdoor furniture on the floor in February and Christmas decorations out right after Halloween doesn't seem so out of whack.

Perhaps it is the weather that's broken.

I will just shut my mouth and enjoy.
