It's the end of March. The last day, in fact. And, as I look outside my window, I see SNOW. Yes, that's right. Several inches of it on the ground. And angry rain pouring down on top of it. Going "out like a lamb," indeed.
Thankfully, the warmer spring sun of yesterday melted away much of the bizarre blizzard that attacked us over the weekend, but I still have fantasies of a real spring. One that includes warm weather. Clear skies. And ice cream.
So, when I came upon this article on America's Best Ice Cream, I figured I'd link to it for inspiration. Some of you are in climate where you can actually enjoy an ice cream cone outside and have the satisfaction of seeing it melt if you don't eat it fast enough. For the rest of us, I'd like to think that day is coming. Soon. Like, preferably, tomorrow.
Also, being that it's the end of the month, I'd like to congratulate the two winners of my March drawing: Vesper & Leshia! You two win the writing journals and the Thoreau bookmarks--YAY!!--and I will get them out to you as soon as I have your mailing addresses. Please email me at marilynbrant AT gmail DOT com and let me know where you'd like them sent :).
There are lots of little celebrations coming up in my cyber world in April--my 2-Year Blogiversary, Easter & Passover, Earth Day (why not?!), the arrival of my book cover (rumor has it that it's on its way!!)--and I'm looking forward to sharing them with all of you.
