Springtime is so alive. The sun warms us, motivates us. The trees spring forth. The colors emerge. And, turn your back for just a weekend or two and all hell can break loose.
At the same time, this is a busy time of year for end of school activities, the fiscal year budget process (if you are so unfortunate, as I am), opening fishing season (missing it again) and it seems every other scheduled event. All can combine to put you behind those chores. All you need is a backyard BBQ or some celebratory event and the chores seem to get done.
So, the earth awakens and springs forth, whether you are paying attention or not.
