#sol14 March 11 Short but Sweet

Slice of LIfe

I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too! Check it out here. Thank you,  Two Writing Teachers

Spring! It actually feels like spring – for two days in a row. We have taken two walks downtown. Yesterday, we walked down for a day on the town: lunch, the library and the candy shop.

Sadly, the candy shop is closed on Mondays.

Not to worry – I got the kids ice cream instead.  Today we walked down to the candy shop again. The sign said, “Sorry! I will be leaving early today for an appointment.” Yikes. Luckily they were still open. We just made it! Something tells me I’m not the first to joke to the owner, “Look! They’re like kids in a candy store!”

The kids spent their $1.00, and I got some root beer candies – one of those tastes that brings me back.

We walked home, fueled by penny candy, and saw so many people out and about. It’s one of my favorite parts of spring, to be outside with my children and see the neighborhood waking up from winter. We stopped to admire a puppy, and the woman with the dog smiled and said, “Everyone’s coming out of their hiding places today!”

She’s right. And we are so ready to come out for good! Goodbye winter!

  1. What a lovely description of a spring day. I really liked the last part when the lady smiled and you said everyone was coming out of their hiding places. So good. Made me feel happy. 🙂

  2. Love the quote “Sadly, the candy store is closed on Mondays” alongside of the dejected Peanuts character. Well played.

    And yes…nothing quite like the sensory details of Spring on our skin, in our hair, and breathed into our lungs. Traces of it are in the air…

  3. Such a loverly time of year! Perfect for walks to the candy and ice cream store! You bring back memories of riding bikes to the corner drug store for penny candy.
