The Suitcase Lady


March 8, 2011, 10:11 pm

It’s coming. Any day now a huge wave of euphoria will wash over us bringing hope. The temperature will hit fifty degrees, convincing us that winter was just a bad dream.

Unfortunately, winter probably has a few more tricks (a.k.a. blizzards) in store. But I intend to bask in the euphoria, no matter how fleeting it may be.

At the moment, however, Mount Tooley  is sitting on our front porch and blocking our door. Since we have two other doors, we are making no attempt to remove this towering pyramid of snow. The euphoric days should take care of it.

On a more positive note, we have made the 70 foot descent down our stairs to the beach.We were accompanied by a snow shovel. Spots of soggy sand are appearing in the midst of the ice fields, and we’ve found the first six pieces of this season’s beach glass.

Years ago, my husband bought a T shirt with artwork perfectly depicting the burst of joy which will accompany Spring’s arrival.

    I really want to be able to fly into spring–do you think changing the time this coming Sat. will give us the boost? We finally turned off our porch Christmas lights, had to wait for the weather to get warm enough to replace the burned out porch light! BUT MY SNOWDROPS ARE UP AND HAVE BUDS.
