Spring Crazy

It's crazy-warm here today - sunny and almost 70 degrees.  Next door there are about six little neighbor boys playing baseball in the backyard and they all have their shirts off.  Is there anything funnier than twitchy skinny little guys male-bonding over sports and showing off their scrawny muskils?

Of course, three of them tried to sell me tattoos last year - they would color on me with markers for the low low price of a quarter per tattoo.  When I asked if they'd had any takers in the neighborhood for this very Ron Popielish offer, they said that they were only going to sell it to me.....not sure if they think I'm just a sucker for their charms or I'm a marker tattoo kind of neighbor but either way, not a bad offer for a woman of my age.

Anyway -

While I love the nice weather (sorry Midwest!).....I'm not sure I'm ready for it yet.  I still have some sitting by the fire-cranking up the heat-making comfort food like mac and cheese with bacon, and roast chickeny stuff-kind of days left in me before I bust out the shorts and the spider veins coverup.

Apologies to all of you who are ready to snarl at me, Overlook Hotel-Jack Torrance-style because you have no hope that the snow glaciers in your parking lots will melt before June.   I understand cabin fever.

I just need to lose three  years worth of weight and cholesterol gain before I can feel springy.  Literally.

It's super warm here today too. I love it, but I'm not ready for shorts either....I'll probably blind people with my big white legs.

Hi Lulu! I hear you loud and clear about the warmer weather. I'm not ready either. Its supposed to get up to around 69-70 here today and I'm kinda pissed off about it.

I'm with you about the fireplace and comfort food. Why didn't that damn groundhog see his shadow??? Early Spring huh?

I got yer early Spring right here, General B. Lee - {he's our resident groundhog - little shit}

Sooooo, try to have a good week. I'm gonna try. Gonna go sit in the corner with my arms folded and refuse to believe that Springs right around the corner. My sinuses aren't ready either, ding dang it.
