The sun is shining...

...and it's almost the weekend.

It kind of smells like spring. If I close my eyes and ignore the chill, biting the tip of my nose and trying to invade the warm air underneath my knitted hat. There's something extra special about sunny winter days, when the birds seem to think it's already spring - singing their spring melodies at the top of their lungs from the treetops.
I can almost imagine tiny green buds on the birches.
Almost.

There are clouds, I won't deny it, but the skies behind them are blue and I'm pretty sure they all have a silver lining. I just have to look for them.

Have a wonderful Friday, my friends!
