Friday Five: Springing Forward

Jan, over at RevGals offers this Friday Five:

Whether we liked it or not, we all "sprang forward" with the change to daylight savings time in the USA this past Sunday. There is lightness and brightness slipping in as spring approaches, so let us consider what is springing forth in our lives right now.



Name 5 things that are springing forth, possibly including : what you hope for, what you dread, what you observe, what is concrete, what is intangible.

I hope for...
a holy Lent, greater productivity and focus in what I choose to do, and more time with family and friends.

I dread...
more bad news about natural or human-made disasters. I pray that Japan solves its nuclear problems quickly. I also dread cleaning out the spare bedroom closet, but that is another thing entirely.

I observe...
that the days are getting a little longer, the sun is shining more during the day, green things are starting to grow again, and the temperature is slowly rising.

What is concrete...
is good friends and good food.

What is intangible...
is the future, where I will be and what I will be up to five years from now.
