Default Do You Like The Spring Season?

Something about spring that makes me really happy, I am happy to see the flowers bloom and hear the birds chirping. It makes me feel calm and relaxed and somehow forget my anxiety. How about you, do you like spring? What makes you look forward to spring?

Winter tends to be my favourite time of year, but after a while I do get tired of the dreary days - that's when I start looking forward to spring. It 's nice to finally smell all the different plant smells again, especially when you haven't been able to do it for months. Do you have any thoughts on the other seasons?

I also love Fall, I love how the leaves turn orange and leaves fall from trees. For me, summer is for the youth, swimming and stuff. Winter makes me gloomy at times, but reminds me of the holidays.

What's your plan this spring?

Heh, no plans at the moment. Spring won't come where I live for a number of months, in fact we're currently in autumn so I get to see the pretty leaves falling from the trees. The sight might not be as spectacular as where you live - in Australia almost all of our native plants are evergreen, so pretty much the only ones that drop leaves are the trees brought from overseas. But there are enough introduced species that it's not an uncommon sight, especially in the more densely populated areas.

It's funny how people from different hemispheres of the world have different associations with the seasons. Winter may remind you of the Christmas holdays, but for us Christmas happens in summer! It's usually rather hot during Christmas, instead of cosying up to a fireplace to keep warm we're usually outside having a barbeque.

Do you have many plans for spring?

Spring is a bit double-edged for me. I like walking around outside but I wish I had my own world to walk around in. I suppose I would mind a lot less though if I didn't actively have to avoid other people for my own safety and theirs.

That makes sense, it is strange how we've become so used to avoiding people (at least more than usual!). Do you take many walks? I never used to do it for leisure that often until I got a dog.

I don't know if I consider it leisure but I've been walking as a daily habit because I've been trying to replace all of my bad ones with good ones. I certainly don't miss the 20+ minutes that I'd be spending sitting there probably watching something on the net that I'll forget in a day.

Forming these habits, and sticking with them, gives me the impression that I COULD care for a dog. I never really believed I could before.

I can relate to trying to swap out bad habits for good ones. Starting is always the hardest part but once you get into the swing of things it gradually becomes easier over time. And like you said it's probably much more satisfying to get out and take in the sites of spring/autumn (depending on where you are) than mindlessly scrolling on the internet - that's still a bad habit I'm trying to get away from.

Dogs definitely need a certain level of care and attention, but some breeds need more upkeep than others. If you get to the stage where you feel confident in taking care of a pet you should look into which breeds would suit you and your lifestyle the best. I've got a greyhound at the moment and they tend to just sleep most of the day - they still need walks and pats but don't require nearly as much attention as some of the more demanding breeds.
