California Dreaming . . .

Sorry I haven't posted all day . . . it's been a cold, dreary day here in Chicago, and I feel lethargic and weary. It's been raining all week, and the landscape is still rather uninspirational; trees are starting to bud and flower, but many are still waiting for the nicer weather to truly start.

I found myself daydreaming of a sunnier, warmer future day, when I will look outside and see palm trees, and the breeze will carry the scent of flowers even in November. I wait with patience for the day when I will leave Chicago, but on days like today, the wait seems especially long . . .

Brrrrr! I could never go any further north than here; I think I'm cold-blooded, and I need the heat;)
