It's so hard to keep writing posts about things that just pop into my head. My head is getting empty :)
The winter has lasted so long and no warmth in sight. Everything is at a standstill. Even my houseplants look a little droopy...although my house is full of blooms. A poinsettia.. that won't stop, a cyclamen, a Christmas cactus that has become so bored with winter....that it has decided to bloom again.The orchids are saying, "Ho hum." The books that I wanted to read have been read, the comfort food is not as appetizing as it was in Oct.My knitting is sitting in the basket waiting for me to pick it up. The quilts and throws are not so cozy...Oh, dear...those windows are dirty again.My comfy winter outfits look dowdy. Even my walk has changed.....slowed down....where is that spring in my step??
What can I do to change my mood? A trip to the grocery store to look for spring...maybe they have Easter lilies. Fannie Mae might have their chocolate eggs on display...yum. Maybe I'll bring some bunnies up from downstairs. I could change my garden window from it's Christmasy look and fill it with spring plants. I could refurbish my orchids planting material and freshen them up for spring.
In the meantime, out the window, a few snowflakes are falling. I am going to shut the blinds and pretend it's all green out there. I'll brew a bright cup of a springy tea and eat a shortbread cookie. I'll put on my painting shirt and go into the dining room and start to paint a couple of new things to hang on the wall. Maybe starting a new project will lift my spirits. Spring colors and flowers...that's what I need.
