Today I found a surprise in the mail! It came all the way from Cali from my longtime bloggy friend, Headless.
A darling little football bracelet - - - does she KNOW me or what??? Later when football season rolls around, we shall PLAN to wear our bracelets together separately while we watch a game.
In the package I also found this little note card with perky spring flowers on it and a warm sunshiny note inside.
I promptly propped that little fresh breath of spring right up on the kitchen counter, because REALLY, we "ain't" got NONE of those growing 'round here!!! Shoot, we "ain't" even got sprouts!!!
Here on the frozen tundra we've still got a lot of this:
Yes, yes, YES!!! I took this photo THIS MORNING. Well - - - by the time this post publishes it will be yesterday morning - - - but you know what I mean.
By the way, do you KNOW how you KNOW if you live on the frozen tundra or not?????
I don't yet know ALL the signals but here is one:
If your walk-up window DQ reopens for spring in mid February, and come sleet, freezing rain, snow, or subzero temperatures the "natives" line up at the window, some of them wearing shorts and flip-flops, to order their non-dairy frozen treats - - -
You PROBABLY live on the frozen tundra!!!!
I kid you not - - - I haven't passed this DQ since mid February that it DIDN'T have a long line.
We natives of the frozen tundra are a hearty lot.
