Yeah, okay, Winter? Mother Nature called and it’s time for you to leave now. Seriously, you were an awesome season and I do look forward to seeing you return, but in order to miss you, you really have to go away. I mean it – no more of this hint of warmer, delicious Spring weather only to have it turn cold and snowy. It’s April now, and this is all getting to be a wee bit much. We’ve had a good laugh and time of it, now scoot along and let Spring have a chance to shine.
Well, that’s a wee bit more like it anyway. The surprise snow we received yesterday was worth a giggle, especially considering that the forecast through next week is looking incredibly promising – all 60’s (maybe even a few low 70’s) and some sunshine (not that I’m holding my breath or anything, since they didn’t really call yesterday’s weather until after it was happening, lol). Already it’s almost 50 out and the all one can hear outside is running water from the rapidly melting snow and birdsong. Now onto wrapping up my week, though really, let’s face it, these weekday wrap-ups are more of an excuse for me to ramble on and share some otherwise unconnected bits of Internet and life happenings and findings.
How else are you going to get great shots like this one of my favorite boots, like, ever (I also have them in the blue – pictures coming soon)?! I am such a boot gal – from my first pair of classic black Dr. Martens in the forth grade (I wore them proudly with my plaid uniform skirt) to my over-the-knee ones and now these darlings.
Boots aside, I have been in a slight rut as of late. Sure, I’ve been doing things, getting things done, etc, but I’ve been feeling antsy, impatient and like my creative-head space is a jumbled, chaotic mess…more so than it usually is. I suppose it could be Spring fever, or the fact that my studio is a hot mess (I swear it sorta imploded just all of a sudden-like) or this low-burning desire I have to start so many things, yet lack the total conviction to just get going, or maybe, truthfully, it’s a combination of all of the above. It’s like I know what I should do, what I need to do and what I want to do – in theory, and while they all sorta meet-up and cross-purpose, I am still hemming and hawing and dragging my proverbial and physical feet about it. Does anybody else feel that way sometimes? What do you do about it?
Here’s to a whimsical and hopefully much more Spring-like weekend!
Namaste ~ Ella
