Hi loyal followers. I guess it's time for me to come out of my winter den and reengage with the larger world. What a doo doo of a winter it has been. Nothing compared to some of you out there with your illnesses and compulsive disorders but we did have leaks and trees down and cold, cold nights here in the house of the stingy person who won't turn up/on the heat. By gum that heating oil is expensive. Tonight, through the sounds of a flood of water running down my driveway and gushing over our little retaining wall, I heard the melodious croaking of the spring peepers. They are sick of waiting as am I. My first thought was to blog about spring but I am shy, nervous to find the voice that has been silent for 2 months. Are you still out there? Does it matter?
I don't know about you, but somehow this winter I really began to see that I'm middle aged now. Before I was just pretending-kind of like telling people you are 60 when you are 45 so they will tell you how young you look. But enough about me. Let's discuss YOU. How did you fare? Is it spring yet in your neck of the woods? Are some of you out there making your first spring tonic out of weeds and thistles? I'd love to hear.
