I want SPRING.

Six degrees. So help me, it was SIX degrees on my deck when I went to work this morning. Of course, that was warmer than it was at the office, where it was 1 below zero. Now it's warmed up to a balmy NINE. *sheesh*

I don't mind snow (which, of course, we don't have), but I don't like this bitter cold one little bit. There was a note on my door when I got home last night from the apartment management asking that we leave our water faucets running a bit to prevent freezing. Oh, how I hate even having to think of such things!

At least it's Friday, and I don't have to be out defrosting the car early tomorrow morning. And, even better, it's a three-day-weekend! *YAY*

When I get home tonight I need to post some photos of the amaryllis. When I got home yesterday, the blooms were fading. So sad to wait so long for them, then see them go away so quickly. They were beautiful while they lasted, though. Believe it or not, the bulb Mom had from last year is finally beginning to send up shoots. I think mine from the year before is a lost cause, though.

Well, lunch break's nearly over, so more later.

I really really really don't like Florida, but it's beginning to sound atractive to me! Pittsburgh hasn't been this cold for 15 freaking years!! Not used to it anymore!!! Grieving for your amaryllis. The only connection i have to "amaryllis" is that was the little girl's name in The Music Man. The one who had a crush on Opie. *LOL*
