About the author : Earth to Ethereal: Eclectic and Eccentric, Spiritual and Sublime When it comes right down to it, I guess I just really enjoy sharing the human experience, whether through writing stories and poems which, hopefully, resonate with readers or by following the path to a simpler, more earth-friendly lifestyle. Thanks for sharing the experience with me!
It’s April 5th, so what did I wear to run the kids to their dental and orthodontic appointments this morning? A lightweight cotton shirt, with another lightweight cotton shirt (okay, cardigan) on top. It’s spring, damn it, and apparently I’m willing to suffer to prove it. (Didn’t prove anything, by the way, except that I’m a really poor outfit planner. I froze this morning.)
Yes, the thermometer read a balmy 26 degrees when I shivered my way into my car, but I refuse to believe I’m the one at fault. Mother Nature, you seem to be a little confused, dear. Please check the calendar and get back to us.
It may feel like winter out there, but I have pictures to prove otherwise:
Baby plants, waiting patiently in their nursery for the big, bad Frost Monster to head North. Plus, sunshine and blossoms. Need I say more?
Maybe just this: please return our spring, Mother Nature. We’ll be happy to accept, no questions asked.
