It’s so dreadful outside right now.  I’m hoping for Spring to actually arrive.  When I left Wisconsin today it was snowing so things could be worse.  I think Spring arrives in May for them but they have such lovely summers.  Part of my fear is that we’ll have exactly two weeks of nice weather and then it’ll be 100 degrees.  Ahhh such is life in the Lou.

I’m itching to run away from it all.  It’s a period of ennui that I go through a couple of times a year.  Nothing serious, just wanting a change of scenery.  Of course I always want to run away to the UK.  So interesting.  Ohhhh…wait, as long as this is fantasyland I want to go to France.  I’ve only been once and it was to Paris but je t’aime France.  How wonderful would that be.  Escape for a few weeks with no consequences.  No work pile up, no bills…ahhhh.  I like fantasyland.  I might hang out here until the melancholy passes.  Bien.


You Betcha

I’m still in Wisconsin. I’m actually really starting to fall in love with this place. Lots of open fields and old barns that lead right up to the lake shore. And the weather – at least right now, is gorgeous. I have escaped the record 100 degree heat and am enjoying the 73 degree, low humidity wonderfulness that is Door County. I will write more later seeing as I’m in the middle of screening so I will leave you with a few pictures taken on our way up Lake Michigan.

What you are looking at is one full acre of blooming sunflowers.
