Springtime in Chicago

I am standing outside in a winter coat which totally covers my shorts. My bare legs are exposed over my daughter's snow boots that I pulled on as I ran out the door. Waiting for the dogs to go to the bathroom. Instead they just want to roll in the muddy grass (I have never seen a dog do a deliberate tumblesault before now - they really get a kick out of this). The dogs are not allowed out by themselves until this Midwest black mud dries out - they came in totally caked in it the other day. The big snow pile has finally melted - we live at the end of the street in a cul de sac and so get all the snow from the entire street in our front yard. The lawn is spongy as we walk on it. I see some tulips starting to come up. Monday it was near 60 and tonight we will have snow. The last time we lived here it snowed on May 7th. Springtime in Chicago!

No good food to post - today I ate my Larabar in the shower because I ran out of time for breakfast! Not an auspicious start to the day.

I think I'd rather skip breakfast rather than eat it in the shower, but that's just me.
