I thought winter had been long. And then came Spring. Our Cold Gray Wet Rainy Spring gave a whole new meaning to tedious. The lack of sunshine and the abundance of rain had taken it's toll on both of us.
For example, we could have gone Fishing--
Not even close to being one of my
favorite things to do, but doesn't this
look romantic? However, unless I
wanted to go rain and ice fishing I'm thinking
this was not going to happen and
somehow I don't imagine this beautiful
picture when I think of ice fishing.
More like shivering, which I've done
enough of, thank you. Pass.
Ideas flowed but not as quickly as the clouds multiplied. On top of that, my hubby was sick with what started out to be a cold, evolved into a sinus infection and for the grand finale---pink eye! He gets sick about once every three years so I guess he was due. However, he insisted on persisting. He claims to have had ideas but he pretty much came up empty. He had my complete sympathy. It's difficult to be creative when it's been gray for days on end and your nose is alternately stuffy and runny!
Just for kicks, here's a few of the other ideas that we could have used. Sigh. The Land-of-Winter-is-Never-Going-to-End is getting quite boring.
|Or, it could be spectacular.....as in flying to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival.|
|Or.....this looks like fun|
|ahem....I threw this one in to see if anyone was still paying attention!|
|Ferris Wheel Ride?|
Whatever it takes.
(Ironically, as I post this, we are enjoying a record breaking temperature of 93! in MAY?!) Wow, it is so true--"If you don't like the weather here, just wait about 5 minutes. It'll change."---Mark Twain
