Adieu, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen

It was as if God Himself had read my pitiful blog last night, because when I woke up this morning there was sunshine. (And 18 degrees Fahrenheit, but let’s focus on the positive.) After a celebratory latte, I decided some spring cleaning would be in order.

I rid our coat closet of snow pants and snowsuits. And replaced them with raincoats and lighter, spring jackets. Maybe said jackets will be worn along with wool sweaters, but I have to draw the line somewhere. And I hereby declare April 18th the end of winter. Also, speaking of drawing lines, I parted ways this weekend with one of my steadfast, wintry friends: sticky toffee pudding

Such a momentous occasion calls for another excellent ode by moi:

Rich companion

Delicious friend

You’ve kept me company to winter’s end (ish)

My pants don’t fit

And I have rolls

So we must part ways

(Until it snows…….again)

Yes, that is the baby’s fingerprint in my whipped cream

  1. Ditto, K. Alternatively, we could force N to bake it for us and eat it all together in our pajamas…depressed…staring out the window.

  2. Maybe Calgary will be magical this Spring, with little need for sticky toffee pudding…or staring, depressed-ly out of living room windows. (No, I don’t really believe any of this.)

  3. If the prophesies of N are true, I’m willing to replace the sticky toffee pudding with Mojitos on my deck – every day for the entire month of June. You’re both invited (pajamas optional).

  4. Tan, you’ve given me an idea: sticky toffee mojito. In the off-chance my prophesy turns out to be false I will offer up said cocktails inside my living room during the month of June.
