I fight being angry with all you guys who live in places who really are seeing signs of spring. If I say anything else I may start to rant. Or cry. Or scream. Or start driving south.
Before I saw Silver Linings Playbook on Saturday, I wondered how Bradley Cooper could possibly have been nominated for a best actor Oscar.
Now I know. He was amazing!
Not Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln amazing. But amazing.
Man, there were some stinking gorgeous dresses at the Oscars Sunday night!
Did I mention that I am anxious for spring?
Did I mention that it is going to snow, then rain, then snow here this week?
I'm thinking a lot about finishing the redo of my dining room. A lot.
I'm not progressing very quickly on the projects to finish out my dining room.
I only want to finish my dining room because when I finish I can move on to the living room.
I really want to have a fresh for spring living room.
The way I know spring is here is this - sometime around April 20 there will be a day. A day when the sun wakes me up. A day that the sky shines BLUE instead of grey. And best of all, a day that the clouds open up and choirs sing from the heavens. You know the sound. Just like the chorus that sang when I finally finished my china cabinet.
I love that choir.
Don't get me wrong. We can't plant here until after Mother's Day.
But that doesn't mean that I won't be in the garden, rubbing my fingertips over the soil feeling for little points that mean that hostas will be sprouting soon.
If not I will be very sad. I will be really sad. I will be horribly sad. Very, really, horribly sad.
Please spring, come soon...
This is a bonus thought. I stumbled upon a few new blogs this week that I have been intrigued by. They are all very different but I think you might enjoy them.
First - Little Green Notebook. So I live under a rock and had never been to this blog which was voted #1 in one of the Homies categories over at Apartment Therapy. This chick has a talent. I've been connected to her blog for 5 days straight. She's probably very afraid of this strange stalker.
Second - 3 Things for Mom. A number of contributing authors share A Truth, A Tip, A Find. You don't have to be a mom to take something from these posts.
Third - Flower Patch Farm Girl who may be the sweetest person in blogland. She loves and makes it impossible for you not to love her back.
Make something wonderful today!
It's NOT spring! Let's party!
