Dreaming of Spring

I am cold.
I am pretty much done with cold, it is officially on my nerves.
I would much rather be sitting here with my laptop than the cold, very messy office where I am now.
I find my self looking through the Sundance Catalog longingly at clothes like this








or this












I also like this one & it's on sale





--as is this one

Somehow I found myself on Ebay, bidding on this scarf. It looks springy and bright, but I don't think I want to increase my bid any higher, so I'll probably end up with out it.
I blame the blogs.
Today it started with a trip to Apartment Therapy to look at "the amazing bookshelf staircase" so I started looking around and there was a picture of these Ranunculus. Flowers along with the seed catalogs--especially this one have got me ready for longer, warmer days. (Holly, if you are out there, definitely check out that catalog, yum!)
I am also ready to spend time on the grill. That started last night when dinner was cooked on the grill, because I'm slightly sadistic and like to shove a beer can up the chick's posterior and let it steam from the inside out. With my special blend of herbs and spices (so secret, I don't even know what is in there) it was the tasty main course along with some Fettucine More-Kiki-Than-Alfred-o (more secret ingredients :) ).

Alas, spring is not close enough, but will be here when she is good & ready, so I will continue to wait.
At least I can play in the mud all year round!

3 garnishes:

I like the ones with sleeves (maybe I'd like the sleeveless one, if it had a person inside it.) Not crazy about the skirt. But that is my humble humble opinion, and sales are good.

I no longer have the great dress I bought the last time I came to visit you in Philly, but looking at these dresses reminded me of that.

Sending hugs and hoping you get your cookies REAL soon.

Eh, I can't afford either so it doesn't matter!
I remember that dress, I ordered it from JJill and found that on me it looked like a fat kid playing dress up and on you it was willowy and springy.
that was a while ago!

I can't wait to open the porch again!
