Let's Pretend Spring!
Late last night when I heard another ball game on the telly, I thought I had to do something positive instead of vegetate. I was tired enough that reading would have put me to sleep I knew. I did not feel sharp witted enough to write. I had cleaned one bathroom earlier in the day, but I didn’t want to hug a broom or mop again. So I decided to part with my last poinsettia and snowmen tea pots and cups. Yes, I know, it is too early to think spring especially when you look out at a four foot pile of snow that might stand by the curb until St. Patrick’s Day! But…I needed some yellow!
Besides cleaning and of course eating, I have been writing. This morning I finished a rough draft of a story I hope has a great future. Now the work begins to trim and tighten, to make sharp so the tale will pierce some editor’s heart with desire to publish!
Now, I rest from this snow day and prepare for another night at -6. Gee, those yellows feel warm!
