spring? where?

I went to brunch this morning with a favorite girlfriend. The snow is falling outside in that cold, prickly kind of manner that seems to be its calling card in Calgary's version of spring. Girlfriend wanted me to go out with her tonight to a little party, but I am at home now, the fireplace is on, bread is rising, and I don't particularly want to venture out in the cold. The skies are a color of grey that spells out "cocooning'.

I hope I have completely different images for you next week after my trip to Vancouver Island. I will be late posting because I am going to be away, but perhaps there will be images of the ocean rather than snow. The Island is enveloped in its own grey skies and rain so the color blue may not make an appearance - regardless, it is time away and I am looking forward to it.  I have made a pact with myself that this time each year, I will go to a warm place with flowers, sun, and lots of heat. Life is too short.
