Thoughtful Thursday

Greetings from frickin' freezing Florida! If today, at any point, you feel the need to feel smug or do the "I Told You So" dance, think of the Baroness - who stupidly brought only summery clothes to Florida after careful research and tracking of temperatures for the last month. This morning it was a balmy 39 degrees. Farenheit. Actually, I think Al Gore is doing the I Told You So dance. In all of our faces. For god's sake, people - ride the bus today, recycle, change the lightbulbs - I've got 2 more days in this fridge.

While you may initially feel a little squidgey when you hear that today's Thoughtful Thursday comes from a passage that I jotted down one day while reading the obituaries (I'm always looking for new ideas), the intent of the piece is lovely, and comes from a well-loved children's author. Enjoy.

Thoughts, rest your wings,
Here is a hollow of silence,
a nest of stillness, in
which to hatch your dreams.
Joan Walsh Anglund

Welcome to my world where it just can't quit snowing and where when the temps got up to 30 degrees two days in a row after being below zero to ten degrees, we actually call it a nice day like a bunch of friggin idiots.

F-F-F-F-F-in February followed you to Florida, my dear. Just think, the next letter in the alphabet brings good, gentle, gooey, gracious, Georgia and don't even get me started on the "m"s for March. hug

Countess SRU: I should stop complaining - it did get up to 50 something, and it was really quite lovely. I remember our year of living dangerously in the frozen north; we were taking off our coats if it got above 40 F.

Countess KR: Yes, I am looking forward to the blessed month of "G"'s - especially girly movies with gorgeous gal pals. We shall step up (do it for Skinny, homes).

who is Giancarlo Giannini? Am I missing something?

Countess Patty Cakes: I'd tell you to IMDB him, but you'd probably end up buying IBM shares online instead. I'll fill you in next week sometime. Big hugs, y'all! TTYS.

I like the verse--though I could have done without knowing the obit part! LOL I hope you warm up soon. Have a cup of tea/coffee/cocoa and it will all be good!
