My windows are currently all open and I've got a good breeze blowing through the house right now. :) (Sorry I live in FL.) Spring here means I'll have to close the windows and turn on the AC, but it also means lazy weekends spent soaking up the sun while sitting by the pool and sneaking up on the kids with cold water balloons. ;)

Debbie said...

I look forward most to get a cup of coffee and go outside right before dawn and hear the birds singing.
That is the most beautiful concert in the world.
