Far be it for me to complain about it EVER being too warm but what’s the big deal about January????? This weekend’s flirtation with the 60’s makes me realize that my whining about hating winter must have worked. Somebody heard me and decided to show mercy. But here’s the deal.
I miss it.
It’s like the boyfriend you break up with because you don’t want him, but don’t want anyone else to have him either. Winter….I want you back! I want it to look and feel a LITTLE bit like the transition between fall and spring…not a 15-feet-of-snow-kind of winter but at least one where wearing my tights and cool new leather boots I bought this season don’t leave me sweating!
One of the (few) good things I’ve often commented about winter is that it allows me to enjoy a much needed rest before hitting the yard hard during early spring garden season. But today when I walked to the car I noticed that my spring bulbs are peeking out of the ground a good three inches. I’m worried I’m going to be out there weeding on Groundhog’s Day!
So it must be true.. Mother Nature IS a woman and she can’t make up her mind!
I created a entire Pinterest board of beautiful winter images to get me through the season. I’m ready….mentally, emotionally, physically. I have hot chocolate to make with a cute peppermint rim around the mug. New books have arrived from Amazon to make snowy days fun reading days. I have craft projects to make, and cozy, fleece pjs to snuggle in.
So….. BRING IT!
And don’t even THINK about coming in March! Because, by then, the shipments from my seed catalog shopping will have arrived and I’ll be out of the mood for you.
So for now… how about a little frosting?
