Is there someone I can pay.... this point for some nicer weather. I mean it. I am desperate. I've tried decortating the mantle with springtime paraphenalia. Bunnies and birdies and decoupage eggs beckon this season to deliver the relief I am seeking from the gray, dismal winter which has supposedly ended.

I've attached little paper butterflies to everything I can find, but I have been unable to add even a few degrees to the thermometer.

I've tossed to boys out several times a day, only to be met with requests for gloves, tissues and complaints of "we're cold!!". I can't argue with them - so am I. I will admit it, maybe I have a case of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Dennis keeps reminding me that "it's only March". Well, today, it's April, and I felt teased by one sunny, warm day we experienced two weeks ago.

Will a little Springtime poetry work?

Awake, thou wintry earth - Fling off thy sadness! Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth Your ancient gladness! ~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

Come on everyone - think Spring and "fling off thy sadness"!
