let’s pretend it’s summer…

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
~Albert Camus

February is coming to an end, and it’s been a cold one. Surely spring is not far off? I can almost hear the birds chirping, and the snow melting.

But no. The weather forecasters are calling for a unseasonably cold March.

How will we get through it? Some are flying south. For me, I will “fly south” in my mind. Books, pots and pots of tea, movies…and I might even try and enjoy the winter weather with some nature walks and skating. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em (“they” say).

Happy weekend, and stay warm!

  1. It helps to think of spring! My friend in Vancouver sent me pictures of blooming shrubs and trees, so I shall move there in my mind. “Stay warm” has become a favorite farewell greeting in these parts.

  2. hi Anne, I was just checking on you…and these posts hve not appeared in my reader or email. I am still your follower, I wonder what is going on? I noticed that a few of my other favorite blogs were unfollowed, but not by me. I have heard that other people have this problem too. But now I wonder why your posts have not shown up??? Any heu, I love this, beautiful quote and beautiful illustration. I am going to read on with the other posts. Sorry my dear, I feel awful and I will check better on my favorite blogs! xoxoxo Johanna
