March is here and it is evident that the weather is doing as it pleases. We have hit 70 degrees F followed by a couple inches of snow here in Madison. It is hard to plan what weather to dress for when I decide to bike to work. I have ridden in with a scarf and gloves but gone home in a t-shirt already.
In like a lion
out like a lamb. March weather
is one of a kind.
At work we have to wear security badges/name tags. This seems to be a common practice in offices. These allow us to get into the doors. While I am at work it doesn’t seem so bad but if I forget to take it off I feel like a fool for walking around with it on. I see other people out and about with theirs on sometimes too. I can’t help but think of cows and the ear tags they have. Then I feel like livestock in the barn and not the free spirit I sometimes think I am.
badge is a cattle ear tag.
I’m out to pasture.
In winter I sometimes find myself daydreaming of spring, summer and fall and all the nice weather activities I am going to do. This is definitely cabin fever. Inevitably I dream up big elaborate projects or plans and I don’t get around to half of them. It is similar to my eyes being bigger than my stomach. Plans made in winter don’t seem so realistic or appealing in the heat of summer.
My cabin fever
dreams are melting away with
the snow this spring day.
