It Ain't Spring Yet

It snowed again last night. Oh, not anything like people are getting elsewhere. Just a couple inches. Just a reminder that while we have had a couple of warm days it isn't spring yet. It isn't going to be spring for a long time. From the feet and inches of the white crap we have on the ground it is going to be a long, slow, cold spring. Again.

I am tired of winter this year. I am old. I am cold. I ache for blue skies and a bright sun. I ache for warmth.

Tess' mother leaves for the coast some time next month for an indeterminate amount of time. I am hoping not for a year. I know that sounds odd but if she is gone for a year it means she will be back here for a year. A year with Nanay is too much for anyone. At a minimum it should be a 6 month on, 6 month off schedule.

And, hopefully, this year Tess and I can have a vacation by ourselves. I don't care where it is. Just as long as it is just the two of us. I just want to get in the car and go.
