Patience is a virtue. It just isn’t one of my personal virtues.
So, this week finds me already thinking spring and dreaming in green. Pinning tulip wreaths on Pinterest and watching the trees for signs of budding. Barely restraining myself from buying a lush majestic palm which surely would not survive the freeze warnings still to come.
Not that any of this will make one bit of difference to Mother Nature. Spring will come in its own sweet time.
Until then, I’ll practice patience and make the most of what remains of winter:
~ Hitting up Starbucks for the yumminess otherwise known as White Hot Chocolate
~”Dewinterizing” the pantry by finishing off the canned soups and stews with grilled cheese sandwiches
~ Using the last of the dark winter evenings as excuses for candlelight….(bye, bye pumpkin, cider and cranberry-scented candles)
~ Relishing the last days of my favorite boots and scarves before they’re exiled to the back of the closet
~ Obsessively googling last minute Caribbean getaways in the unlikely event our work schedules open up. (Hey, a girl can dream!)
Anybody else dreaming of Spring?
