Happy Friday Folks!

We did it.  We made it to March.

Soon it will be Spring and things will be fresh and new.

Warm and bright.  Longer days and not so frigid nights.

But for now we still have snow and shoveling and cold feet and chapped lips.

Lets embrace these waning days of winter because I’m sure come the heat of summer I will be lamenting for them.

That’s just the way I roll!

Have a great weekend all!

jelly donuts 2

I’ve shaken off this winter funk folks!

Sure there is a Blizzard headed this way but I embrace it.  What choice do I have?

We have our supplies.  I have my gin.  I bought flowers to make me smile.  All good here.

Do you know what turned my curmudgeonly ways around?  Do you know what caused Larry and I not to flee south and start a new life?

Jelly Donuts.  Say it with me folks, Jelly Donuts. Sure this salad helped but this here donut helped more.

It was so perfect, just what a gal needs to lift her spirits.  I even made it with the last of my homemade jam.  Yay homemade jam!  I had sweet thoughts of summer and the daydreaming of this years canning have begun while it snows all around us.

jelly and flowers

All thanks to the almighty jelly donut.  Natures perfect food.  So says I, so says everyone (or they should).

mediterranean pepper salad 2I think I’m suffering from seasonal affective disorder.  Anyone else?

Maybe post holiday blues.  I’m pretty sure I have frost bite but I’m not a doctor so maybe not, I don’t know.

All I know is that everything has turned blah and cold.  I’m struggling to want to do anything.  Frankly seeing the temperature in my car at 12 degrees the other morning when I went to heat it up so Larry and I don’t turn into a popsicle was just a slap in the face to my mood. Blah.  Not cool winter.

I’ve been dreaming of warmth, how I wish I was here again.  I’d even happily go with my sister again and refuse any gin.  That’s not true.  That last part about gin was a lie, sorry.  It’s this weather.  Blurg.

On our frigid drives to work these couple of weeks Larry and I have been hatching a little plan to just keep going.  Forget work, forget New England winters and head south to Savannah.  I’m not sure how we came up with Savannah except I’ve never been and have always wanted and well, Larry is game for anything.

We would just drive into town.  I’ll work at some diner with a cute little uniform in some 1940’s style.  The patrons would be humored by my sassy northern ways and Larry would follow me around as I wait my tables.  I’m assuming that would not be any sort of health code violation or anything.  People would think we were the bees knees and say “that’s a mighty fine dog you have there” and I would say, “that’s not my dog, he’s my best friend” and scene.  Is that not normal?  She shrugs her shoulders, exit stage left.

We don’t talk about the reality of this plan being we would be leaving Franklin, Newton and Adam and that would be just awful but Savannah does sound nice and warm and I can be sassy.

Happy Friday Folks!

Frankie & Larry

Do you have a snow day too?

I guess I wouldn’t really call this a snow day other than we got a bit of snow and I already had the day off from work.  I’m pretty sure everyone else is going on with their day.

Well for today in my little world, the pups and I are having a snow day.  I’m making soup, hot chocolate and I have a certain beagles’ birthday cake to come up with.

Hope you all have a lovely day, snow or no snow!
