Are we all ready to go for spring semester activities, folks?
Sigh...I hope I am not the only one who ISN'T!
How does one get motivated for "spring" semester, when the scene outside the window is anything but spring-like? (What was that? The Bahamas you say? EXCELLENT!)
The weather outside is gray, DANK, and damp.
I just want to hole up with my family and hibernate!
Co-op begins this week. Scouts started last week.
Yesterday was SO unimpressive. Serious wall to wall fog, rain, gray clouds and dampness. Venturing outside was the LAST thing I wanted to do! I did, (reluctantly) for dental appointments and other things, the whole while longing for a hot cup of tea, the sofa, our nooks, and a comforter. (A fireplace would complete the picture...unfortunately our current place doesn't have one!)
We have been making homemade, healthy, hot soups (Southwestern black bean most recently), and a big pan of baked oatmeal (which freezes in squares placed in Ziploc bags beautifully), to try to chase away the chill...
But personally, I am so ready for the ULTIMATE chill chaser!
COME ON SPRING!!!!
