Pasty White

Normally at this time of the year I am over the cold and snow and ready to move to a warmer climate and in general just move someplace else. Try something new for a while. I have been in the Gunnison Valley for over 10 years and I would love to try something new. This year though I have not had the anxious feeling to leave because I am getting ready for a big change anyway with the arrival of a new baby due any day now. One thing though I have noticed is that I have lost all of my summer tan (and I had a good one this year due to all of my runs during lunch). My arms are so pasty white it is almost scary!! I know that pasty white is healthier than a nice summer than but I love the tan!! I could use a nice trip to a beach but I don't have a swimsuit to fit into!

What do you long for in the middle of winter??

I long for fresh, local produce... like juicy strawberries and crisp green beans! I also long for warm weather... sitting on the deck with a beer in my hand... Hubby standing at the charcoal grill... the stereo playing... sounds like heaven to me! LOL

I crave garden time, being out in the hot sun, color everywhere, the sound of lawnmowers, going to ice cream shops, playing outside until dark . . .
