On a brighter note (cause there always are some! grumble) someone told me about Market Spice tea and it's stunning. Just what I needed today ~ oranges & spice. And an open wood fireplace and hand-knitted wool socks and another couple of dogs would be nice.
On a walk a few days ago, I just about tripped when I looked up and saw a male cardinal in a vibrantly pink flowering tree. I've never seen a redder bird. I literally couldn't look away and, when he flew off, I found my legs walking on again.
This spring is knocking my socks off.
