So I realized that my blog needed some sprucing up. And as much as I'd have liked to use images of living blooming things, snow still seems more appropriate for the time being.  However, this white fluffy stuff is hardly characteristic of what's outside right now.  Ours is a dirtier crustier variety now that the days are getting longer and warmer.  Things are indeed starting to melt and it's kind of turned the whole town into a sloppy mess.  

On a brighter note, I am oh so excited to ditch my hat and enjoy some much needed sunshine in Waikiki later this week. Can't hardly wait!

Spring Fever (revisited)

Thanks Mark Twain for summing it up so nicely.  (found this pic here.)  I am sick sick sick of all this dirty slush and ice. And my heart is aching for  - I just don't know what. 

Maybe my heart wants a trip to Hawaii. Well, that's what it's getting, so I sure hope that it is appreciative.

near fatal case of spring fever

March can be a dark month for me.  I know, it's ironic because it is in March that it finally starts getting lighter.  We are almost to the equinox and although the daylight is appreciated it is still decidedly wintery and cold.  I made it through the dark days of December, the bitter cold of January and the fleeting sunshine and warming temperatures of February that hinted at spring..... yet spring is a long way off.  While there may be crocuses and daffodils blooming some places, our landscape is still blanketed in snow and ice - stuck in the doldrums of winter. 

So I finally booked my trip to Hawaii and I leave in 15 days.  I think that a weekend away will do me good. I look forward to walking barefoot on the beach and getting a little sun.
