I’m not one for wishing my days away, but I’ve caught myself daydreaming (a lot) about spring lately…wishing it would come sooner than later. That’s laughable in Minnesota, where winter lasts forever plus a couple days after that. The payoff is that May through October is pretty spectacular. But May seems awfully far away.

To help me snap out of the winter blues, I fill my head and heart with green. It’s my favorite color, so I imagine all the grassy hills and foliage that spring and summer will bring. I picture my hubby happily mowing the grass. The gigantic hosta in my parents’ gorgeous garden (that’s me touching and appreciating them last summer). The leaves on the trees that form a gorgeous canopy of green over my favorite tree-lined road.

And if all that visualizing doesn’t lift my spirits, there’s always chocolate. :o)
