not yet sprung

the past couple of days have been spring-like outside.  there's been sun, melting icicles, birds chirping, and wind chimes.  it's still chilly when you actually step out into it but all in all it feels good.  too bad i've been sick with a cold, rendered useless by a drippy nose and congested head. stuck in bed with kleenex corks in my nose. 

it's days like these, with the sun streaming through the blinds, that make me think of that first day i could wear my running shoes to school.  not having to change out of boots, dry pavement and skipping ropes, sidewalk chalk and hopscotch.  we still have a while to go yet, this will just be a little tease, but still... it's coming, green is on it's way.  anyways, i'm still kind of liking the white and wouldn't mind another big storm that shuts off our power and makes us live by candlelight.  crackers & cheese for dinner, ghost stories, and warm cuddles.  winter is good for those sorts of things.

wow! that is a lot of snow. love the photo though, kind of haunting in a way. luckily we've lost some of our snow due to "mild" weather.... i'm sure we'll get it back though ;)
