Hang in there, spring is coming!

Living in Florida, I have not been longing for spring’s long-awaited arrival. We actually have had spring most of the winter this year. Having spent most of my years in the north, I do sympathize with my northern friends. I think the most used subject for posts the past few weeks has been some form of “we can’t wait for spring to get here!” I just want you to know that even though, I am here, and you are there, I do feel your pain! Also I have been very jealous of all of your beautiful wintry, snow, and ice photos you have all been taking. I hope you don’t get to take too many more of them this year! πŸ™‚

  2. Missing my 15 years in California, but still, Wisconsin is a great place. Lack of sunshine does affect my mood; today I’m soaking in great doses of Vitamin D through my window, listening to mating cardinals and the howling wind. Spring is coming and we live for this kind of encouragement!

  3. Hoho – I’m not so far away from Florida myself these days (or closer than I usually am) and appreciating the sun! Lovely image, can’t wait to feel some sand between my toes πŸ˜€

  5. I will try not to take your sunny, beachy, warm-looking photo personally. It’s still snowing in Illinois and yes, I’m tired of it. πŸ™‚

    • I may be paying for my sunny, beachy warm-looking photo. It got cold here tonight, well you probably wouldn’t call it cold. It’s not going to snow or anything, but it would not be a good beach day. Hang in there, it will stop snowing soon! πŸ™‚

    • I hope your daughter has a beautiful warm day at the beach! But then any day at the beach is a good day! You can’t argue with good food either. I’m sure you could use a good beach day too!
