Spring Fever

Okay – yeah, I’ve been MIA for awhile. I shall blame it on January. This stretch of winter is hard isn’t it? I think it’s because you have no holidays to look forward to, you’re over the novelty of snow and ice and cold, the landscape around here is just barren and pretty ugly, frankly.  I’m tired of being cooped up in the house and I’m just longing for spring!

I bought myself some flowers the other day to cheer myself up. Seriously, that works. I just keep looking at them  – dreaming of spring and open windows and thunderstorms and butterflies . . .

Gabby and I are keeping up with our diet and excercise routine. That’s a positive. My sister is not doing any better. Next week they are going to test her heart and kidneys to see if she can withstand a new type of medicine. I believe it’s some form of chemotherapy. Lately, when I think about all this I just cry. That’s partly why I haven’t written. I just don’t want to sound depressed all the time. I’m just praying that it helps her.

Today it’s supposed to get up into the 60s (F) I’m pretty excited about that – I now get happy about the little things – like warm weather!

    Thanks for coming by my blog. Oh flowers do wonders to the wintertime blues. My hubby bought me some over 2 weeks ago, and they still look pretty decent.

    I am loving the warmer weather too, but I hear that Phil saw his shadow so they are saying 6 more weeks of winter. ewwww. Lol

    Although I don’t want summer coming to soon in Arizona. hahahahhaa
