Having lived in Illinois most of my life I’ve seen a good number of seasons come and go. So as the days get longer (it’s still light at 5:00 p.m. now!) and the sunlight begins to change, normally the next thing I’ll notice is the smell of something dirt-like and moist in the air and I smelled that smell yesterday!
I’ll admit it was very faint but a couple of my Thursday design team volunteers noticed it too so I’m not totally crazy – or – not alone in my craziness (you pick!)! Oh, how my spirit quickened at that smell!
I know, I know, we certainly can’t complain about what a hard, awful winter it’s been – since it hasn’t been any of those things – but still the slight smell of the earth thawing and lovely green things opening their sleepy eyes and thinking about poking their heads above ground again (that’s scientific, right?) is so amazing it makes me smile.
When I mentioned my whiff of spring smell to my husband last night he warned me to be careful since bitter cold and massive snow could still arrive on the scene. Though that’s true, it’s encouraging to know that even if it does, it won’t last too long! Yay for us optimists!
I’m also very optimistic you’re going to find amazing furniture this week at Jubilee Furniture! We’ll be open our usual 1 to 8 today (Friday) and 9 to 4 tomorrow (Saturday). Let’s take a look at some of the new-to-us things available for purchase!
