Are you familiar with that "pants on the ground" song?
I don't have time or energy to watch American Idol anymore, as much as I'd like to. Even after DVRing the show, I still hadn't watched a single episode, but that didn't mean I didn't hear about that song and "The General."
Funny enough, my Mom told me about the song and told me to check it out on YouTube.
If you know the tune, then sing along to the words below:
"Spring In the Snow
Spring In the Snow
Looking like a fool
For my garden hoe.
Ice blocks melting
Birds are Singing
It's almost time to get the Cadbury hopping...
Spring In The Snow..."
But seriously, I did hear Spring In the Snow early this morning when I took our poochie outback for her potty. (We have a fenced yard, but there's been an increase of coyotes and one dog was put down after they were attacked, so I'm being a good poochie owner and watching my pet.-Another story another day-)
While out back about quarter to 6 this morning, I heard sounds of song that if you were unfamiliar to our Chicago Seasons you'd swear it was the snow singing to you.
But it wasn't the snow singing. It was the sounds of the morning birdies that come back in the Spring.
As they start the process of their early morning song.
As they arrive for dress rehearsal every morning to be fine tuned and nestled when Spring is in full swing.
It was just the sounds I needed to hear to remind me that Spring will be here.
Before I say April Showers, it will be Summer and we'll be listening to the sounds of the night birds melting the summer nights with their sultry summer night musicals.
This Summer it will be different for us. Because as of yesterday we are fully committed and will be moving out of the town that we currently live in. We've purchased a home!! -that we all can agree on-
Yes, I am sad to leave this town behind, but I have family here, and memories here and it will forever be the place where I grew up, so that can never be taken away.
Besides, I'll have some benefits to the new town we're moving into;
~being closer to my mom's family roots
~and closer to that delicious candy store that makes amazing caramel apples in the Fall
There are many other advantages too. But I think I'll just leave you with 2 for right now.
If you're in the Midwest or any frozen chilly state, what hints have you seen for signs of Spring?
