Hello, Spring

I knew, in my brain, that it was coming- but my heart (and toes) had a different idea. This winter was long, and cold and seemingly endless.

But end it must.

The first day of spring arrived. The very moment that it did, I turned to the woman next to me, “It’s spring! Would you like to wave “good-bye” to winter?

I was hoping that I had a flipping-off partner, but alas- the Walmart cashier wasn’t up for it.

So I celebrated in my own way.

I stocked up on these. Anyone with a decent flavored vodka collection knows that these are pretty good mixers...and they are water so rehydrated WHILE cocktailing. doublewin.

I started stocking up on porch reads a while ago. It’s still too chilly to read outside, but the time is coming. And I’ve almost finished one of these from the couch. Like I could wait to read that…pfftt- no.

The seed collection is growing, these are ones I put in every year.

Okay, sure I'll have to take them inside when it snows or gets really cold (this weekend) but for one glorious 70 degree day- it was spring and, damn it! I was going to get my hands in some dirt and plant something.

My toes are still cold and I have yet to pedicure them, but it will happen soon. I bought strappy sandals a month ago and I’ll be ready to wear them as soon as the piggies defrost.

Happy spring, wanna wave “good-bye” to winter with me?

  1. I finally got my 70° day today, and when I ventured out to look, I managed to capture my crocus in bloom (pic on G+, of course). 🙂

    I’m doing my best not to think about more snow due Tuesday…but with any luck that will be the last of it. And then I can try to figure out how the heck to get rid of the aphids (I think they’re aphids) that have been plaguing my poor parsley all winter, or whether I need to just give up and get rid of it, pot and all.

    • yay! 70! We’re getting the snow today (Monday) and I’m not too happy about it! I’ll bet you can get rid of the aphids ( I like the ladybug remedy when you can put the plants outside), but parsley is pretty easy to grow if it’s bye-bye time.

      I took a pic of someone else’s crocus the other day, I should post that, it made me dance. On the sidewalk. With kids in tow. Who rolled their eyes.

Got at thought about this?
