I know spring is coming... This morning I woke up, opened my eyes, and thought I am going to finish, or should I say start decorating and setting up my room. I decided I needed paint, yards of gros-grain ribbon for the curtains, fabric to dress up the doorless closet, I could put the bedside tables together, and maybe add a single painting on the wall, I could also try to finish the wood floor trim, and choose some plants. All this to say, that spring has to be coming. Decorating is somewhat like making a nest. I am a bird, excitedly preparing my home! And I know it has to be true. My next door neighbor has been adding curtains to her windows, plants in pots, the yarn harlot is redoing her bedroom floors... I always find it amazing that we all think of the same thing at the same time, that we even do the same things at the same time. So maybe this morning it was the light or the air, I don't know, but I am on a mission, and by George, I will get my bedroom ready, and I will finish setting up the rest of the house, and I will landscape the whole yard, and, and, and...!!! I feel like Napoleon, unstoppable! But of course first, I have to go get the paint, which means a long walk in the freezing weather... Somehow, the weather as not quite figured out that spring has come!
