So long, January. I, for one, am glad to see the back of you. February has the decency to be a shorter month. She also brings us two more minutes a day of light, three by the end if you want to get technical. We Northerners will take it. We steel ourselves against the icy wind and greet a day when temperatures hover around freezing as a sure sign of spring. We hope not to catch the flu or any other winter ailments. But I feel a bout of cabin fever coming on. (Cabin Fever: “A condition that produces restlessness and irritability caused from being in a confined space.”)
The cure, ladies and gents: spring flowers, and of course, chocolate. Try these Rocky Road Cookies to smooth the path to spring.
It’s out there. I know it is.
