Bring On Spring
I went to Produce Junction on Friday for cheap healthy food and decided some flowers would brighten up the house. The prices as the Junction are amazing, $1.50 for a bunch of gerbera daisies, $5 for two dozen roses, and 2 lbs of green peppers for $1. I've been cooking a lot more and making a lot of recipes that include peppers and onions.
Then we went to Lowe's and Home Depot to find a new overhead kitchen light fixture. The front entrances of both stores were lined with starter materials for flower and vegetable gardens. Here's where I get all kinds of inspiration and motivation to do some serious gardening this year. But as my husband says, I'm a dreamer. I get all kinds of grand ideas that I do not follow through on, and gardening is always one of them.
But I am ready for spring. Ready to stop needing to bundle up the kids everytime we go out. Ready for warm walks in the park. Ready to trade in the Uggs for strappy sandals. And ready to swap the sweaters for sundresses.
Too bad it is still a long way off.
