By Spring I mean sunshine and warmth. I want it. Lots and Lots of it. Not unlike Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I want it all and I want it now. Things growing out of the ground, open windows, soft breezes, billowy skirts, flip flops.....baby, PLEASE!
I don't think I'm the only one. Winter is hard, people. The cold is hard, too. But the gloomy, grey skies, they seem to be the hardest for me to take. I would think that my declining attitude about the lack of sun could be attributed as depression...but many say, "NO" to that idea. It was even somewhat addressed in an episode "The Office" just this week:
Toby: (sadly) "Well, it HAS been a long, lonely winter..."
Dwight: (sarcastically) Wow, Seasonal Affective Disorder, aka 'SAD'. It sounds like a very 'real' thing, Toby.."
Andy: (sarcastically) "Yeah, Wow. It's like we're not ALL experiencing the same winter???"
I don't know. Do you enjoy winter? Does it NOT feel like it is the longest season of the year? Should I just move south and quit complaining? Ha! Me? Quit complaining? Now, what fun is that?
I'm counting 10 days until we "Spring forward." That is very good news.
19 days until the official start of Spring. Even better!
30 days until March goes out like a lamb. That's right. A soft, baby lamb basking in the bright, blinding sun. Yeah, we'll see.
Until then, I will be sitting by the heater in my feet pajamas, drinking something warm, and "basking" in this:
Uh huh, fake sun. Take what you can, when you can. :)
Stay cozy, friends :)
