Waiting for the spring that won't ever come


All day yesterday I was singing that  - waiting for the spring that won't ever come even though the actual lyric is "waiting for the trains that just never come" from High Life by the Counting Crows. I think in song lyrics, and sometimes the ones I fuck up become blog post titles.

It's been calendar spring for two weeks and felt like spring on like two occasions for five minutes each. Everything is brown, skies are mostly gray, and it's a gamble to leave your winter coat at home. Except for today, when it's supposed to be 68. Tomorrow highs back in the 40s. Monday morning, snow. Snow in the weekend forecast too.

Between today and tomorrow I'm going to shave my legs, get my hair done, give myself a pedicure,wear bright colors, and apply self tanner in an effort to lure spring out for good.

You should do your version of the same. It's going to take all of us to pull spring away out from under the winter stranglehold this year. Let's lure it out with love and wooing words and beauty and preparation.

I have chosen to wear a spring dress with leggings today. It's the first time it's ever seen the light of day, and I did not realize the detail that I thought was gray is actually green until I got into the full light of my office so my charcoal gray leggings are a little off. Sorry about it.

Let me know what you'll be doing to add to the cause.

  2. It has been crazy rainy here, & is apparently going to keep on raining. I'll try to send some warm rain your way to melt all the snow.

  3. Well, it has to show up sooner or later. We go from the 60s to the 40s to the 70s to the 40s, etc.

  4. I pulled out my pink blazer and hoodie, and lipstick! I was actually surprised by all the pink in my closet being that I don't really like it. But anything to help Spring get here sooner!

  6. We're experiencing similar weather: 70s yesterday, 40s today, with snow in the forecast all weekend. I wore sandals yesterday and picked up a bouquet of tulips. I'll take any glimpses of spring I can get.

  9. Hahahahahaha- it's currently snowing in Ohio where I'm at right now. Sigh.
    I have bright colors all over the house, flip-flops waiting on standby, and seedlings that are dying (literally) to go outside and grow.

  12. I have an event next Friday night. I ordered a very springy dress. (Flowers and sleeveless so the weather better behave) Also my spring break starts next week so I would like to see some sun and warmer temps.
    I have also ordered my friend to bring back Warner weather from South Carolina when she returns on the 14th.

  13. While in WV this past week, I wore shorts several days (and one of the days it was a tad cool, but I wore them anyway)!

  14. It's driving me crazy, Steph. It's been so brutal here-- cold, rainy, dark, gloomy, snowy (UGH, are you effing kidding), etc. I understand April isn't going to be 70/sunny but my god, I'd settle for 55/sunny. I like your approach in creating spring yourself--I changed my FB & Twitter cover photos to big ass sunflowers...that was a start.
