I had the most awesome surprise this afternoon… Hundreds of robins cheeping in my backyard. It is spring time! No matter what the calendar says. The tips of my daffodils and tulips are barely peaking through the dirt. I can’t wait till they show their happy little faces. The pure yellow of old fashioned daffodils is by the best part of spring to me. When I was a little girl, I would pick hundreds of them and fill quart Mason jars near to bursting.

Until spring arrives, I am going to have to console myself with alcohol. This is the best time of year for fresh citrus; combined with my mini palm tree, maybe sipping this will make me feel like it is warm outside and a tan is in my near future.
