It's negative degrees again outside, after a week where I also went for a run in hail, calmed the rent-a-dog after lightning, and left the house in a t-shirt, complaining about the humidity (what global warming?). So, I find myself thinking longingly of spring...and pretty flowers...and warm breezes...and...sunshine...sigh.....
