Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back at your desk, convinced that the spring may finally be on the way.
It has been the long painful slog through this winter, what with the string of blizzards and ice storms, ice storms and blizzards, one right after the next, wearing down your resolve, and forcing you to spend several hours each week perusing the online real estate ads for the greater Phoenix-Las Vegas-Death Valley area.
“Oh, look, here’s a nice fixer upper in a place called Scotty’s Junction.”
Whenever you do this you end up wasting many of the minutes daydreaming about living the semi-retired lifestyle in the great Southwest, culminating in the thoughts which invariably feature the denim skirts and the straw cowboy hats and the turquoise, lots of the turquoise.
And then you look out the window and see that the sun is bursting through the clouds, and suddenly you feel hopeful that this winter thing, it is just the temporary phase, that perhaps it will end soon.
Look! Beautiful green shoes to celebrate the approach of spring!
