Seriously. There are several feet of snow outside. The sky is a dishonest blue--meaning, it's pretty, but it's totally still winter time. I am SO COLD. And of course, a friend of mine flew to Cancun today and I am desperately jealous.
I want sunshine. I want to wear dresses and flip flops. I want to have picnics and go for long walks outside. (Yes, people do that in the snow. I'm not one of those people.) I want the beach and iced tea.
Instead, I had soup today. Actually, it was tomato soup. You know how long I've HATED tomato soup? Forever! I have always hated it! And then today, because we got a can of it from the church's pantry, I decided to try it with our grilled cheese sandwiches. I added some basil, celery flakes, and oregano and it was delicious. I not only didn't hate it, I actually enjoyed it.
You can all congratulate me on finding another food I don't hate. In the past couple years I have added mushrooms and cheesecake. (Yes... I really hated cheesecake.) Still working on blueberries.
In addition to the adventure with soup we also did some cleaning. My desk space is still 75% disaster, but I'm working on it. Like I said the other day, everything is a process. Some other things have to be done first. For instance, a few weeks ago I cleared out a drawer of random craft stuff and put all of it into a toolbox. I put paper in the drawer. Well, I'm realizing that I have too much "random stuff" for the toolbox and it will have to go back into the drawer which means my paper has to back into the original system, so I have to move shelves around and... you don't want to read all that. Totally boring. ZZZZZZ.
Anyways. We DID get the majority of the kitchen and the bedroom clean, and I personally reorganized the bathroom. Like a champ! So in one sense, it IS spring time, because of all the cleaning. I just wish it would get up to a nice 40 degrees one of these days. Or 50 even! That would be heaven!
Oh well. Back to "cleaning".
