I am in full winter protest mode. Eventually winter gets to a point where I just can't stand it another minute and I refuse to participate. I have been wearing my flip flops for weeks now. I don't want to wear sweaters or drink hot chocolate. I am having the adult version of a temper tantrum and refuse to do as winter says. So there. I want to play in my garden, buy plants and have a rosy nose and cheeks. I want it to be daylight at 9pm, use the grill every day and go for a swim. I want to leave the house without a jacket. And I want it NOW!
