Longing for spring

I am looking for signs of spring and I can’t find any. There are 10 more days of February and 20 days of March until spring officially arrives- that’s almost another whole month! We are expecting 7 inches of snow this weekend. We’re flying off to Las Vegas Sunday morning so I hope most of the snow holds off until after we leave. What a long, cold, snowy winter!

It is 64 degrees in Las Vegas right now! That’s not bad compared to the 39 degree cloudy weather we are experiencing. I can’t wait. It’s been 15 years since we’ve seen Vegas. I’m guessing there will be a lot of changes. We’ll be flying on Southwest for the first time and that should be a new experience too! I’ll tell you all about it when we get back. Someone sent me this card trick this week:

Try it out – it will blow your mind!

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on my new store and making spring crafts. Making bunnies and chicks cheers me up. I also put out some St. Patrick’s Day decorations and a new screensaver on my computer. That bright green is cheery! I think I’ll buy a shamrock plant when I get back.

Did you ever wonder how they make green beer? They put shamrock juice in it. Just kidding! There are a lot of ways to make green beer but the easiest way is to add a few drops of green food coloring to a frosted mug and then pour in a beer. Very refreshing!!! Darker beers will require a few more drops to get a good emerald green color. You can also make green milk and milk shakes (a la McDonald’s shamrock shakes) by adding a few drops of food coloring before mixing. You can add mint extract for a mint flavored drink.
