So Tired...

of winter.

Really, am I the only one who thinks it's time for winter to just. go. away? It was almost 70 degrees a week ago, and now, it's barely out of the 30s. Tomorrow it's supposed to be just as cold. Blech. The groundhog didn't see his shadow, so bring on spring ASAP. I am beyond ready.

I'm a spring person. Well, spring and fall. Those are my favorite times of the year - warm during the day, cool at night. Perfect weather. I know the warm is here to stay when my daffodils make their appearance and I get the overwhelming urge to plant stuff. Last year I grew sunflowers (which were beautiful until the squirrels got them. Damn bastid squirrels), basil (what started out as one pot grew quickly into three and I had more than I could ever possibly use), tulips (fell victim to the deer), and snapdragons (victim to not enough watering. My bad.) This year, when the urge hits, I think I'll plant thyme and basil again (but this time, I'm going to try to keep it small) and my flowers. I dug up the tulip bulbs last year, so I'll try replanting them and see what happens.

So hopefully the warm weather really is right around the corner. I can't be the only one fed up with cold and snow and ice and all that. What about you? How do you know when spring has really and truly arrived?

Oh, and btw, I have a release date for Devil in Disguise. Look for it come June 17th! Yay!

Congrats on the new release. Do you have a blurb for it yet?

Ref: spring
Around here, it's spring when the first scorpion comes out of hibernation. That was two weeks ago.

We're still not past the last frost date, but even if we our temps dip, it won't stay there for long. We're done with winter for the most part.

Scorpions?!?! **shudders**

i think we're finally getting done with it. The days are a little warmer now. Thank God... :D
