When I was a kid one of my favorite sayings was,  "Snow snow, go away, come again another day."

Today as an adult I don't like that saying at all.  I want that snow to STOP coming and not come back for a very long time.

Tulips and SwanBoats

The weather man says that white stuff is going to start again tonight and continue through the day tomorrow.

I don't have to go out in the snow, rain or wind,. Whatever I have to do, it can wait for a nice sunny day whenever that will happen!!!  At this point in time I want to put away the heavy coat, wool sweaters, gloves and hats.  Oh, to go out in a short sleeve top and shorts!!!

What to do to bring the sunshine in, or at least pretend that it is here?

I needed ideas and what do you know I got them from Beverly Beckham who writes for the Boston Globe.  Her articles appear in the North section of the Sunday newspaper.

Red Tulip

Well this past Sunday Beverly had a column entitled "Think spring...spring...spring."  Her approach was so different from the way I had written about "snow' in a recent post.  I enjoyed her positive approach dealing with winter!

She wrote about some tried and true tricks that could ward off those winter blues.

Here are a few of my favorites  that I'd like to share with anyone who can't wait for spring to arrive.

1. Listen to summer songs. "Summertime," "Those Lazy HazyDays of Summer," "Old Cape Cod."

2. Buy tulips and set them in a clear glass vase on the kitchen table.

3. Get a pedicure. Sit back, relax, put your feet in the water and think summer!

4. Wear something colorful like yellow or pink.

5. Look at photos of summers past and smile.

Beverly, I'm going to keep your "Think spring" until the real thing comes along.

Every time I read it, it does make me feel better.  Thanks. ;-)

Inside a Tulip

What a wonderful way to bring pleasant thoughts into one's mind when the dreary things hang around. Thank you for sharing the suggestions Millie.

Millie, we're expecting snow tonight and tomorrow, yet by Sunday it's supposed to be in the mid-50s. Great list for making it through the rest of the winter.
I yearn for it...
This winter seemed so long.
