Well hello to YOU!




This happy discovery along the back side of my house is taking a bit of the edge off February. Am very excited to see who these turn out to be. (These aren't the ones I planted in the fall--those are out in the yard under at least a foot of snow.) And if any of the bazillion deer in my yard so much as look at them I swear I will punch those deer in the boobs.




You know how February is. Everyone in my poor family has been manifesting in different ways.

I stare grimly out at the snow and eat carbohydrates, while threatening mammary violence against deer. Also I knit. 

Coolboy tried to plan a trip to California that didn't work out. 

Jenny is painting the inside of her new house, and bought really, really extremely expensive paint for her bedroom "to tell winter to suck it." (Her words.) 

Spitfire called me demanding that I take a Caribbean cruise with her and then cursed me out (in her mind) when I had to tell her that I don't have a current passport. "WE DON'T LET THINGS LIKE THAT LAPSE!" She is right. I feel shame. 

My parents sent all the women in our family (including sisters-in-law and Spitfire, who is single) an email saying that they can't go anywhere this month but are trying to plan a "defrosting" vacation for later in the year. Because at least booking a trip can make you feel better, you know? So if anyone is secretly pregnant and due around x dates they'd better fess up if they want my mom to come help. Except the dates they were throwing out are so far down the road that said secret pregnancies couldn't even be conceived yet. Math fail . . .

GH: So is that why you are all this way? Did you get it from your dad?

Me: Pretty much.

But look! Only one week left! Stay on target . . .

I was wondering why you hadn't posted for so long.. Now I know. Its because its February.

My guess is daffodils. And from what I hear deer prefer tulips. My crocuses started peeking through and I can barely stand it.

Nemesis said... [reply]

Indeed, sister.

Yep. That's why. And when you are feeling all apathetic it's REALLY easy to get out of the blogging habit!

Rachel, I would LOVE to see some daffodils, I tell you. Also? Just clicked over and read your "Stop It" post and loved it. Word.

February sucks...this February I broke my foot, got pink eye and food poisoning. Then beloved Downton Abbey characters died and I got even more upset. I'm ready to see pictures of flowers again. At least, the Easter candy is back.

Abby, if I were closer than 2,000 miles to you, I would go get us a fistful of those Reeses PB eggs to share.

Thanks Nem...I'm eating fistfuls of Cadbury mini eggs instead.

I hate February. I'm pretty sure the bulbs popping up are going to be hyacinths, which are quite possibly the most pleasant-smelling flower there is. Lilacs and roses are so overrated. Ooooh, I forgot about wisteria. Maybe it's wisteria.

What happens in one week?

Cathy Harrell said... [reply]

Wait! I know. It will be March. As if that even makes one iota of difference up here in the frozen North! But hey, this week we bought tickets to Hawaii, almost in 2014, but not quite. It's out there.

Those aren't Cadbury Mini Eggs - I'm pretty sure that Cadbury brought out their mini eggs and then quit making their regular sized eggs and are pretending that the eggs previously marketed as "mini" creme eggs are the original regular size.

Nice try Cadbury. Not buyin' it.

AmyJane said... [reply]

Haha, also currently downing mini Cadbury eggs. And being mad at everyone. And putting my children to bed an hour early.

AmyJane said... [reply]

Sister Harrell, take me to Hawaii with you! Those were the days...

Nemesis said... [reply]

Brinestone, I would be quite happy with hyacinth. I didn't buy any last fall bc they were expensive!

Ana, who even knows what crazy things Cadbury is doing in all the different countries. At least in ours I know the answer is "actually being made by Hershey, and therefore not tasting as good."

Amyjane, those WERE the days. Ah . . . Hawaii.
