three reasons I love this time of year

Three reasons I love this time of year.
1. Christmas is over. Sure, I love Christmas as much as the next person, but now that It’s over, there’s no more cooking, cleaning, organizing, or shopping to do, and I can relax.
2. Spring is on its way. I know, anyone living east or north of the Fraser Valley will think I’m insane, but for us here, there’s a whiff of growth in the air. I smelled it today when walking up an outside staircase next to a big garden bed. the rotting smell of soil decomposing and plants growing. Yum. And, of course, the days are getting longer now instead of shorter.
3. More time to write! This is the best of all. School’s out for another week, so when I sit at my computer it’s to polish off a manuscript, not to mark papers. I’m just about finished my next manuscript, and trying to get done before the craziness of term starts up again.
