A few things for the weekend:
The snowbanks are soooo high, oh my God. I went to Concord today to our February crop which was held at Karen's mom's new house (soooo cute, might I add!) and everywhere you go, you just can't see a darn thing. Especially for the very few of us still riding along the surface of the road in regular cars and not SUVs, it's very very hard to see around corners when the snow is piled up 5 feet high. You pull up to a stop sign, pull your car halfway out into the road to see around the snowbank, decide you can't see ANYTHING coming at all anyway, so you just shut your eyes and floor it and hope nobody is coming.
I hope everybody had a good Valentine's Day! Dave ordered flowers for me, but there was a mix up with the florist so they didn't come until Friday and as a result they brought an extra box of chocolates! I love samplers, and I try each one with a progression through the key that tells you what each one is. YUM.
And finally, a sure sign that spring is very very slowly on its way. When the male turkeys start strutting around in full "poof" it means that spring is coming! Although you'd never know it by the looks of it, this is a definite sign that in the natural world the seasons have shifted, the sun is getting longer and brighter, and animals everywhere are looking towards the end of a long winter. It WILL come, no time soon (that's for sure) but it's on its way. Another sign that spring is coming? My peace lilies have some new blooms. This may sound like I'm reaching for straws, but BELIEVE ME, when you hate winter as much as I do, you start looking for every little sign that something--anything!!- is changing. I always notice in February when the days start getting longer that my peace lilies start blooming after a long dormant period. Even the plants know that the light is longer and stronger.
