Too Much Winter:

And now — A few comments about Winter….

To be blunt — I’m tired of Winter!  We’ve been snowy and cold (very cold) since the first week of December.  And January was the coldest (Polar Vortex, etc. etc.) in twenty years.  And with another recent snowfall, Husband has been up atop our house (in mountain-climbing harness) shoveling snow off our very steep roof.

I’m TIRED of Winter — I’m tired of the bitter cold, I’m tired of the huge piles of snow along the roadways, in every parking lot.  I’m tired of temps too cold to ski.  I’m tired of feeling stuck in the house.  This is known as Cabin Fever?

To cheer myself — I thought I would share a few photos from previous (winter) posts….

And that’s my Winter Cheer.  Hope everyone is getting through this crazy Winter.  And again, CONGRATULATIONS to three Winners!

  1. Hey Marcia. I’m excited to receive my beautiful plate. I’m in Virginia though…not Maryland…wanted to make sure you had the right address ;-).

  2. I’m going right out and buying me some flowers! I think that’s the only antidote! Thanks for the inspiration and beautiful pots.
