It's Spring because I said so....

At supper tonight Andy informs me that we are about to get a big storm...upto 20cm of snow and high winds. I just felt resentful, wanting spring to burst forth because all of us are so sick of winter. We have a serious case of the winter blues!

So, what do I do to cope with this news....I take it upon myself to go clean my two huge picture windows from the outside. I drag my kitchen chair outside, grab my bounty and windex, balance my chair on my frozen flower beds and climb up and get to work!

I realized how silly I looked, but I wanted to wash away the grime from the winter, the dirty snow balls that the kids throw at my two windows...depending on which room I'm in...they never tire of scaring me!

So, I have to say that I felt a sense of satisfaction knowing that in spite of ole mother winter...this mamma was moving forward ignoring completely the impending storm!

Good for you!! As for looking silly, how'd you like to have a Spring flag, egg wreath on your door, and porch swing hanging all in anticipation of lemonade on a warm day...covered in a blanket of snow! This is a rude end to winter/start ot Spring! Keep your chin up and plug on.

It is so dreary out today...though at least I'm not looking at the splats on my windows from the snowballs!

So far, the storm hasn't been to bad...

I wish I could borrow some of your energy!!!

This weather is totally uninspiring.

Hey Wenny poo! Thanks for cleaning the windows and for painting the living room window inside. I'll soon be done this outage and this summer (when the blues are over) we'll work together on "This House We Call Home"

Love you dearly.

I am feeling happy , we did not get any snow , but some rain , my 8 yr old went to school in a wind breaker this morning, you don't know how you have made my day as I am here in Ontario on a gloomy day recovering from a bad bout of the flu, I am a resentful Canadian these days though , the weather here super sucks, my husband is on his way to Hollywood wednesday ,I know I will be more bummed then.As long as I'm not alone.

Hey Chris, did your hubbie leave for Hollywood? I'd be bummed not getting to go....

Though, at some point, all the hollywood stars will be calling you to come decorate their homes!
