the holidays are over. the new year feels solid beneath my feet... and now i can feel it in my bones.
spring is coming.
a little while ago, i was getting my things ready for work tomorrow. i hate waking up early so i always put my clothes out the night before, make my lunch, even make sure my keys are on the counter so i don't have to waste time digging through my bag for them. all of this so that i can sleep until the last. possible. minute. i feel like setting my clock for 6:00 rather than 5:45 makes a hell of a lot of difference in my mood for the day. anything in the 5:00 hour is just too early... i mean, come on, i'm not a farmer.
anyway, when i was picking out my clothes for tomorrow i opted for flats rather than boots. other people look to the groundhog... i look to my shoes to tell me if we'll be having 6 more weeks of winter or if the flowers will be budding soon instead.
i'm not delusional, i know i live in the pacific northwest and that it's going to be raining and dreary more days than not for awhile but...
(look out, spring is in the air.)
