Holy shitballs, can you believe it’s almost May?! MAY!

It feels like just yesterday is was January Eleventy. But, it’s true what they say, the older you get the faster the time goes. It’s fucking depressing. When you’re young, summer break from school feels like it lasts forever. Now I blink, and it’s over and back to snowing again.

Hold on. I’m going to have a cry for a second.

Okay I’m back.

Today is also April Fool’s day which seem totally appropriate to have over Easter…I’m sorry, it’s just too easy a joke to make.

Nothing makes me more aware of my ridiculous seasonal depression like having a couple days of sunny warmer weather.

This week we got two glorious days of sun and +11ºC. The dog was happy, the kids were playing tennis. My feet didn’t feel like icicles because I forgot to wear slippers around my house. Then, with malice and hatred, the weather man burst my sunny bubble – calling for a cold front with a snow storm coming up from Texas. FUCK YOU TEXAS.

To get to work today I had to scrape the snow off of my car first. I don’t like doing physical labour first thing in the morning. I cried and my tears literally turned to ice. Okay…that didn’t happen, but I’m seriously just so over this.

So, with my desperate longing for spring in mind, I thought I’d do a Book Nook Sunday totally dedicated to bright spring colours.

I could sit in these rooms and read and forget about the fact that this winter has lasted seventy-eleven years so far.
