So I woke up on Saturday to another gloomy day, looked out the window and what did I see??
Thank god, because I was beginning to question my ability to survive this weather without medication. This robin gave me the will I needed to go on. So I hit the road in search of spring décor. I figured, if you build it they will come? Maybe?
Regardless, I ended up at Dollarama with an arm full of fake flowers, a bird house, and a floral tray. I left without the birdhouse, which I later regretted but the fake flowers came with me. On my way home from Parkdale people kept smiling at me, I think they appreciated my efforts to brighten up our dreary streets! (or they were crazy). I spent the next hour on my front porch giving the appearance of spring to all who pass by. I can't tell whether this is tacky or not. I mean, fake flowers don't really scream sophistication, but at least they're colourful, and after several months of gloom, I'll take anything.
I started with my seasonal wreath. I made some last fall from the wild vines at the farm and I decorate them according to the season. They were previously decorated in a winter theme, which I was more than happy to update. Now they are screaming spring! I added some flowers amongst my other weathered accessories and called it a day. It’s not my best work... but I think it’s a huge improvement.
The next day… it was sunny and I rode my bike! The weather gods were listening to my pleas! I actually squealed with glee on my way to work, and that DOES NOT happen often, or ever really. This was a special day.
Today however, it was raining and that’s okay, I can deal with it. It’s a spring rain and that is acceptable. It will bring May flowers - or so I hear. But if it turns to snow ever again I think I may have to be committed.
Thanks for reading!
