February 29

Was supposed to share this photo which my husband took a couple of days ago
to show that spring is just around the corner. These are some cherry trees in Ronjie's school. The flowers are starting to bloom already. :)

I'm so looking forward to spring! The cold winter weather is difficult to get by with every day. I'm looking forward to lighter clothes and not having to look like a Michelin guy everyday, all bundled up in my layers of warm clothing and jackets. I want to be able to be excited again about getting out of the apartment. And of course, I can't wait to see the cherry blossoms and experience sakura season for the first time.

I've been counting the days to spring and anticipation would increase each day, when the temperature would rise a degree or so. But when I woke this morning, this was what I saw:

Snowfall! It's fun to watch, but I wouldn't want to get out of the apartment in this weather. Ronjie says snowfall in Atsugi last year was never as heavy as this one today. The wind was strong, too. Haay. So much for starting to count the days to spring. Maybe tomorrow will be a warmer day.

P.S. Just also want to share this beautiful short by Filipino filmmaker Lance Katigbak:

Enjoy your February 29! This happens only once every 4 years! :D
