my sad little plants
I know, it's still a bit early for our little corner of Oregon. But could you just show your face? A few more times so we know you're still there? It's been very wet and cold here. I guess Winter is just enjoying his long visit a little too much. You've overstayed your welcome, Winter! Time to pack your bags and "visit" someone else! We are ready for farmer's markets, bike rides, and a little color on our frighteningly pale faces. Mother's day lunch outside would be nice. Yard work and picnics. Gardening. Coffee and music on the front porch on lazy Saturday mornings. Bare feet. Yes, please.
I see the signs! Please tell me you're almost here! I think this year is worse than others since it's the first in a long time that we haven't traveled somewhere sunny to break up the winter, due to the Baby Who Does Not Travel Well. Also that nagging little, relatively new thing called One Income.
Um, thanks for letting me vent.
