You can never hold back spring

Tom Waits is right. You can never hold back spring. It has arrived here in Mississippi, first with a blanket of pollen, followed now (thankfully!) by much-needed rain last night. I went down on Monday afternoon in a cloud of yellow dust, conquered by a sinus headache. But pain-reliever and decongestant revived me in time to make Pad Thai and watch Out of Africa. I fell in love with the beauty of it. Now I want to slipcover everything in white, polish the dark wood until it shines, bring in fresh flowers and dress in khaki.

I can surely understand that, Caroline. I'm going to old tyme pottery today to look for glass vases to fill with things, and seashells to scatter about. I'm aching to slipcover EVERYTHING!

Did you like Out of Africa? I heard mixed reviews about it.

I'm sorry my blog doesn't like you and wouldn't let you comment.

It's views do not reflect the views of it's operator.

Sigh. If only I didn't look so washed out in khaki.

In case you ever wondered: it was the year 1995...
