anticipating spring

I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but I do like to take some time at the start of each season to think of some things that I would like to accomplish and some things that I am anticipating. Because I live in New England, the seasonal lists are often drastically different. ;-)
This winter has been especially brutal, 77.8 inches of snow to be exact(!), and I while I do love winter, I am ready to see it go. 

Bring on the grass, flowering buds, and singing birds. I'm even ready to welcome the rainshowers!

Spring 2011 Joy List

Enjoy my beautiful Goddaughter's baptism
Good-weather walks with my best friend now that we live minutes away
Finishing grad school classes
FINALLY getting to plant an herb garden!! 

Getting all of the rooms upstairs painted
Getting the outside of the house painted
Red Sox games
The smell after a fresh rainfall
Designing some new landscaping for the yard
Having a grown up tea party
Reading books that aren't textbooks

Seeing what the kitties think of all of the nature at our new house
After-dinner walks w/mmb
Having time to scrapbook
Jumping in puddles
All the new seasonal vegetables and fruits that will be out 
Practicing yoga in the fresh air

And whatever else comes my way!

What are you looking forward to this season?
