In Northern BC, you can't trust March. It's a tease, giving you days and nights of melt, before snapping its teeth and putting you back in a deep freeze.
But it's closer to Spring than November, so we put up with its mood swings and wait—impatient and cranky—for May.
Warmer temperatures make me itchy to do. Do what? Almost anything. Mr. C enjoys building projects, and I've benefited from that with renovated kitchens and bathrooms and every other room in the house. It's common at this is the time of year to come around a corner and find him contemplating walls with a feverish look in his eye. It's also the time of year he can convince me to say yes to almost any construction project. Because I want to DO!
We're scratching that itch by checking out open houses. It's amazing the number of floor plans available, and it's inspiring to discover new tile, new flooring, new colours. I like to imagine who the first buyers will be, and how they will make it their own. Then we come back to our home—which we love—and stare at the walls some more.
Here's to the The Melt—Northern BC's fifth season. Bring it on!
