The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow Could Be A Rumor

0511-1008-1202-4136_Girl_Shivering_in_the_Winter_Cold_clipart_imageI’m here in my flannel bathrobe shivering after going for a rather numb run. I made myself brave the cold chanting the words…spring is coming…spring is coming.

Of course one can’t help but be a little skeptical considering the weather we’ve been having. I’m from New England and can’t recall this much snow. Yes, we’d have a storm or two…school would close…I’d sleigh ride down the hills of Bearsley Park, but it was no big deal. It ended, and tulips and daffodils came up waving as they bloomed.

Spring is turning into a great big tease after showing up here for a couple of days. She slyly convinced me to haul out my little sleeveless dresses. Even coaxed me into wearing one just to vanish again leaving a chill and a very cold thin girl behind.

I’d be lying if I said weather didn’t make me anxious especially after dreaming we had winter all year round. In the dream I made curtains out of all my spring apparel. Yes, black drapes graced my modest apartment. That’s what I get for eating cold pizza before going to bed.

I long to slide into a pair of shorts and a striped French sailor shirt. images-2 I’d dust off my Jack Rogers images-1and off I’d go for a nice long, lazy stroll without a care in the world.

To feel the breeze in my hair and sun on my shoulders…sigh

Hold on, the phone’s ringing.

It was spring…she said she’s on her way.

Yeah…heard that one before.

But we can still hope.            get-attachment-30

  1. I’ll send warm thoughts your way. Actually, it turned colder this week, although I noticed a few insects out already.

    • Insects, flowers, bees…they’re all so confused. Shall we crawl…shall we buzz…shall we bloom? I just came in wrapped up like a Russian peasant. It’s 13%…to run or not run, that is the question…my mental state says…yes…get your skinny ass out there…the loll in me however bleats…have another cup of coffee why don’t Susannah you preferably by the heater 🙂

      Hope teaching those kids are filling you up with ideas for essays to come.

      • It’s interesting. One of my classes today was a class of all Grade 9 soccer players. They’re not that interested in studying, but they did pretty well, better than I thought. I’m sure I can find inspiration somewhere.

      • You have a David Sedaris bent in your prose, and that’s a compliment. He’s the only writer that has ever made me laugh on the subway…just burst into random giggles.

    Susannah, it’s pretty pathetic when we get excited in March that the weather might get up into the 30s. My sweetie and I take a long pole and knock apples off the trees (12) for the deer. We don’t knock them all off at once, so they’ll last through the cold.

    We had some thawing over the weekend and it’s great to see some grass (not a lot) again. The big storm missed us and I am ecstatic! The weather is cold until later in the week. They are saying 50 degrees for the weekend. That will work for me! I am still in my flannel shirts! Thank God for LL Bean.

    In Britain, we never expect predictability in the weather and moan whatever we get.
