A Taste

Posted by Gwen |

Today was glorious. Mid seventies, sunny . . . the air even smelled like spring. When I got home from work this evening I saw that, throughout the day, the daffodils had popped their little heads above ground in an effort to get closer to the sun. They were a delicious sight.

My haute couture ensemble today paired pink flip flops with a puffy, brown goosedown jacket that is guaranteed warm to -15 degrees. I can't believe I wasn't contacted by In Style to do a cover. Especially since I donned the flops without the benefit of First Spring Pedicure. I needed to air out my toes so bad (I hate shoes, BTW) that I didn't care.

I only wore the jacket, though, when I had the top down on the car. It was a little chilly on the highway.

There may be cold days to come, possibly even snow, but I just feel that the tough stuff is behind us. Please don't tell me horror stories about snowstorms in March; I need to believe.

And also? I wrote and posted this from my couch. Amen.

If spring doesn't come to MN soon I may have to hurt someone. Or something. I cannot bear to wear ugly winter clothes anymore.
Sigh. Seventies. We may reach 50 today! Woo-hoo!

Oh, I'm so jealous. We're still buried in snow and it's in the 30s. I can't wait for Spring!

WM and Allie: If warmer days are here, then they are headed you're way. I put a fan in the back yard and aimed it north. Can you feel it?

Hello: You will be dismayed to learn that I do not get pedis in the winter. You might stop being my friend when I tell you I don't shave my legs either. I have really sensitive (Irish) skin, and if I don't have to (wink wink), I don't. All of my "spring maintenance" is getting done next week. Wish you were here, we'd go together. There's an awesome martini bar next to the place where I go. I call the event "Peditini."
