Flight of Fancy

It's freezing outside, aggressively, violently freezing outside. The windchill is something like -15. That's unacceptable and crazy. I'd cry but the tears would freeze as they fell,
further chapping my poor cold face.

      So let's play make believe. 

Remember spring? It was a long time ago, I know- but as one of you kind readers commented last week "Spring is but a crocus bloom away". Which of you said that? It was posted anonymously, 
but I love it.

      You know what makes me think of spring? Everything, because I'm desperate. 
But especially birds and butterflies. 
They're brightly colored and cheerful and make me believe April isn't as far away as it feels now. 

      So cuddle up, do whatever it takes to stay warm, and enjoy a little taste of spring.

      P.S. this is what I look like right now while writing this post. 

Feeling very sorry for myself.
