my un-favourite things



raindrops on roses, (or more accurately giant piles of snow smothering and crushing my hydrangea)
whiskers on kittens (staring longingly from the window wishing for summer)
bright copper kettles (working over-time making heaps of warm tea and hot chocolate.)
warm woollen mittens (or more like soggy wet Joe Fresh polyester mittens)
brown paper packages (delivered by the UPS man because its too cold to go out to shop)
these aren't a few of my favourite things...

when the dogs quickly pee and run back inside because it's too cold out.
when there's no sign of the bees because it's the dead of winter...
when I'm feeling S.A.D.
I simply remember my favourite things (like palm trees and beaches)
and then I don't feel soooo bad.

Kids in white snowsuits with blue satin scarves (are they actually white or just covered in salt from brushing up against the car everyday?)
snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes (and annoying people who don't bother to shovel their side walks)
silver white winters that melt into spring.....(Oh for the love of g-d how far away is spring exactly?)
these aren't a few of my favourite things....

laa laa la la....

as lovely as all this white stuff is,
I so have to get out of this winter wonderland.
pronto.
oh and I am.
yay for me!!
next stop- Miami.

The Hills are alive......

So lucky! I've never felt the need to get away to a hot place more than I do this winter. Too bad it aint happenin'. Enjoy it for both of us.

Geez, I'll swap you: it's sweltering here in Sydney! We were subjected to 42 degrees last week. I'm daydreaming about snow, chilly breezes, frost ... anything to take my mind off the beating sun. Grass is always greener, eh?!

Ha! I have to say, though, this week's warmup is really helping my mood a ton.
