It’s a bitter -27 degrees out before you factor in windchill.  I can honestly say that, despite its beauty, I’m ready to bid Winter good-bye.  Each morning I find myself hoping that February will zip by so that we can get to signs of Spring.  Fortunately, I have a little bit of Spring in full bloom in my living room.

There’s something about fresh flowers that cheers the soul even if the body has to go outside and freeze to deliver papers.
