i declare today summer!

I don't know about any of you, but 
winter
is wearing on me.

So, I'm thinking that today I'll turn this up.
(Just for a while.)

And I'll lather on some of this.
(It smells like summer)

I'll put this on.
(While the heat is up, of course)

Then I'll paint these poor, neglected, tired of seeing
only the insides of wool socks, slippers, and shoes toes o' mine. 
I'll open these blinds, and let the sunshine in.

Then, I'll lay on this towel, in the little patch of sunlight provided by
the window, and pretend that I am somewhere else.
I might even treat myself to a smoothie.

Anyone want to join me?

And I need a pedicure so badly. Hopefully, this weekend.

I'll join you. Sounds like fun. I think I'll bring my pink bike upstairs and sit on it awhile. Of course, I'll be wearing my big Jackie O white sunglasses!

Sounds good. I'm wearing socks and a sweater, and I'm still freezing right now. I'm definitely ready for warmer weather!

Sounds good! We had a little break from winter, but it's a little chilly once again today. (Nothing like where you are, of course!)

Oh Oh Oh!!! Better yet, fly here - it's about 80 outside, and we can really go and sunbathe!

Have fun!

I'd probably fall asleep on the towel, so Instead I am curled up next to my sleeping baby in a fuzzy warm comforter... *sigh* good as it gets when its this cold.

You are so funny!! Come to vegas for goodness sakes. It has been in the mid 70's and you can wear your little sundress by the pool.. I wish I could share sunshine and warmth your way, but I really love your idea. By the way, thank you for the word correction, that was awful. I felt like a dork. LOL

Yikes, sorry Heather, those toes need some work. YES I will meet your for a summer break. I'll bring my own towel, and wear a FULL bathing suit (not my teeny bikini, wouldn't want you to feel bad about your self, snort,chuckle) Where did I put my sunglasses???

I think I would love to join you! I am soooo missing the sunshine!!! That little patch of sunshine sounds so fantastic. I think my brain needs vitamin D! I wish I were strong enough to just declare a day summer! I do have the ocean in my classroom and that helps! I will totally email you...I really think we live close...we'll have to see!
