Spring Still Isn't Here Yet

There is a strange sleet/flurry/rain combination falling outside right now. Yesterday it was sunny, and a couple of days ago it was pushing 70 degrees. Now they are calling for 4-8” of snow. Bleh. I was na├»ve enough to think that we were in the clear. I haven’t decided if we are going anywhere today. Groceries need to be gotten so now the debate is whether to go now in the rain, or tomorrow when there’s snow. It’s kind of a lose-lose. Plus, I was struck with some variety of food poisoning/flu/mysterious bug last Sunday, and I have been pretty under the weather ever since, so naturally, motivation is dwindling. Not to mention the fact that Brett & I just got completely addicted to 24. We have made it through the first 12 hours/episodes, which means there are 12 more to go. The more I write this, the more I think we aren’t going anywhere today.

In other news, I have fallen completely in love with these:

They are measuring cups from Antrhopologie that come in the shape of adorable little flower bowls. Tempting. Very tempting. Then I remind myself that they cost $36, and it is NOT OK to spend $36 on measuring bowls. Spring needs to get here, because dangerous things begin to happen when I am cooped up inside spending too much time on my computer. Moving on…

Brett and I went to hear this speaker last night at Front Street Brewery in Davenport. He is a chiropractor/consultant/guy who builds practices for the purpose of selling them. He was interesting. And scary. He talked a lot about all of the things we pretty much already knew but didn’t particularly want to be reminded of about owning a business, growing a practice, financial stuff, etc. etc. etc. Oh well, for now I will just pull a Scarlett O’Hara, “I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.” And when I say tomorrow I mean 208 days, 19 hours and 40 minutes from now when Brett graduates. Not that I’m counting.

Now I’m in the mood to watch Gone With the Wind. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow instead of shoveling snow.

UPDATE: In the time it took me to write this blog post it went from wintry mix to actually snowing outside, and some of it is even beginning to accumulate. *Sigh* Where are you, Spring?

I'll just go ahead and remind you that IS spring in the Midwest!

I have some orange ceramic bowls like those. I should dig them out.

Those are really cute measuring cups!

You could always come visit me in Las Vegas to get some warm weather :)
