Words that I never thought would come out of my mouth, winter is my favorite season but this one has been too much. With the extreme cold, dangerous driving conditions and just all around gloomy atmosphere, I am ready for some milder weather even if that means spring. I hate spring; pastels, allergies, that manure smell that permeates farm country when everything starts melting, the dirty brown snow, the completely asinine amount of litter before the road crews get out, never quite knowing what to wear. I hate it but I am actually kinda’ looking forward to it as well. I even got myself a spring’ish manicure this weekend. I am still loving the dip powder, it lasts longer and my nails looks really nice.
Feeling further inspired to get into spring, I put out the few Easter decorations that I own. I’ve never been a huge fan of Easter and spring decor, probably the aversion to pastels thing but this pig with bunny ears is the cutest thing.
I also started melting lilac and gardenia waxes, my apartment smells like a delightful garden. I think that the kitties are also ready to have the windows open again so they can keep an eye on the birds. They are not amused.
I can’t wait to go to the farmers’ market, go for a bike ride, sit on the deck and read – spring will be welcome indeed. But that reminds me that I should probably get my allergy meds filled 😛 Are you ready for spring, has the winter been awful where you are? We aren’t even through March yet, I fully anticipate a giant snow storm before we’re in the clear!
