Dreams of Spring

This little hummingbird necklace from UnderGlass is so sweet, it’s a little warm reminder of spring to come on an icy, chilly night.

And it’s a reminder sorely needed, since I have been up and about since 5:30 a.m. and even with the equinox long past, this feels like one of those truly long, cold days of winter.

It began with a failed attempt to get D. into a public dental clinic this morning (the poor boy needs three root canals, and doesn’t have insurance for it). We woke up well before dawn, but still arrived too late to get him on the list. We consoled ourselves with steaming cups of coffee at one of my favorite breakfast joints.

That was followed by a long, full day at work, a race to gobble down food and get to my first continuing-ed class on the Adobe program, InDesign. Even though it was interesting, I struggled to stay awake during the three-hours of instruction. It was after 10 p.m. by the time I finally drove back home, in the dark and the beginnings of an ice and snow flurry.

Where did the day go? I can’t wait until it’s spring again and I have a chance to relax and watch the hummingbirds go by…

  1. I’m with you….waiting for Spring. Yesterday it was in the single digits!! Hmmm, sounds like you’re burning the candle at both ends, as the saying goes.

    Unfortunately, as you get older, the time will seem to go even faster…whether you’ve had a busy day or not!!! LOL

    The pendant is really lovely. I’m off to check out the Underglass shop.

  2. Boy, it totally sucks that he doesn’t have insurance. I hope and pray that things change in that regard, given our new administration.

    In the meantime, I hope things work out OK in the short term with his dental.

    Good luck.
