As soon as I typed this post's headline, I felt that I'd used it before. A quick search on my blog showed me I was right - I did a "Sure Signs" post here, in November 2013. That time, of course the "sure signs" were about Christmas approaching. Now, it's about spring in general, and Easter in particular.
I suppose I am not much different in my eating habits from many other people who go for food a little on the heavier side in the colder season, and long for fresh greens when spring arrives. Here is an example of a typical mid-week TV dinner for me:
Hummus, carrot sticks (sometimes I use other vegetables, depending on what I happen to have) and a leafy mixed salad with tomato and cucumber. I love hummus (as you will know if you have been reading my blog for a while), and this ready-made one is very nice.
Other greens appear in my wardrobe again, now that it is a bit warmer. The sleeves on this top are too short for me to wear it in winter; I often have cold hands and have the habit of pulling jumper sleeves over my hands when I can. Therefore, this top is my choice for the office only when I feel I won't need the comfort and warmth of full-length sleeves.
Yesterday, I decided it is time to get out what little Easter or spring-themed decoration I have. You know I love my clean empty surfaces, but for Christmas and Easter, I allow for a little deco. Here is what I have put up this year:
The best decoration, though, is the one that was to be seen from my kitchen window today:
Blue skies and, clearly visible in the close-up picture, primulas in many different colours! The trees and shrubs are still bare, but it won't be long until the first tender leaves will appear.
Happy spring, everyone!
