Happy Monday?

A child’s misplaced mittens greeted me with what looked like a jaunty wave as I waked to the Metro this morning. I found them adorable, perched as they were on the cast-iron fence, so I stopped to snap a photo. Maybe they’ll prove to be an omen, and today will be a cheerier-than-usual Monday.

    I’m jealous of all of the GREEN!!!! I saw news reporters this morning reporting from D.C. and they were not wearing winter coats. Oh, and the real kicker: you had tweeted about birds waking you up the other day, and I was up shoveling the driveway by 6 a.m. listening to the birds and trying to wrap my head around sleeping with windows open to hear those “Spring is here!” chirps! Hope you have a happier-than-usual Monday!

    Those mittens are adorable !! A child hanging up winter, perhaps!! Not so in Bing — awoke to not being able to open the doors for the snow drifts!! 30+ inches or so. It has been a daunting day of digging out. Still cannot get to the road — a good deal of it is plowed into the opening of the drive. I am *patiently* awaiting a contracted plower to arrive. There is still a SOE here until midnight, sooooo…. We had birds Saturday too but they must be hunkered down someplace. Hey birds, COME BACK !!!

    Mercifully, we did not get a rediculous amount of snow this time, but we are completely encased in ice. This winter is the gift that keeps on giving…kind of like house guest that just won’t leave no matter what you do!
