It Looks Nice Enough
What is that color in the background? We haven't seen it for a while. It's not that color usually associated with some holiday everyone is celebrating today, It's not covered with those squished circles with a point on one end and two lobes on the other. Truth is, pink makes me nervous and hearts are too... round... sentimental... freeform. I like blue or yellow, squares, things with points and hard edges.
There you have it. I'm blue and prickly, and happy to be so. It was a pretty day, but WINDY. Grand Rapids recorded their windiest Valentine's Day ever with gusts of 40 mph. Here, the pine trees were littering the frozen lawn and I had to bring the tarp that covers the snowblower inside to keep it in the neighborhood.
