TODAY’S ADVENTURE: Springtime observations.
JAM FACT: I can’t wait for it to warm up a bit more so I can get back into my swimming routine.
The first of the nectarine and orange tree blossoms are out, my first Iceberg rose of the season is out, the first of my pansy seedlings are out, the lavenders are out, the gums and wattles are out, the goannas both big and small are out [but no resident bung arrow as yet], the bees and ants are out, the resident swooping magpie is out, [Yes watch out UNYOUNG JAM … he is dynamite this year!] the dandelions are out and the black cockies are still nibbling their way through the prolific amount of gum nuts on offer and best of all, my you beaut wet suit is out. It seems as I sit awaiting Mr Spleen to behave himself, that I can observe more fully just exactly what is going on in my world and believe me, there is definitely an assortment of things for me to be impressed with.
The weather has been as they say, ‘Springy ‘– a bit of this and a bit of that, wind, cold, rain and sunshine all rolled into one [and I don’t even live in Melbourne] hence why, on a recent sunny 29 degree day, I resurrected my blue, black and white wet suit from its winter home and readied it to slip easily on for a much awaited swim. I love swimming and our pool [courtesy of my very handy pool boy otherwise known as MY J] has recovered from its winter blues and is now sunshine heating up just waiting for this little UNYOUNG JAM to venture into. The pool water, even though it is as clear as a bell and looks very inviting, is still a tad on the chilly side even with my supposedly warm wet suit on, so a few more sunny days are required before these little UNYOUNG legs are out with the goannas et al and I start ‘kicking ass’ in the pool again.
In the meantime I am going to continue to enjoy all the delights of springtime and take note of just what exactly, will be out to greet me when the sun comes up tomorrow[ that’s figurately speaking of course -still too early for this little UNYOUNG JAM to actually witness a sunrise just yet.]
Until next time – make hay as they say, while the sun shines!
