I’ve simply given up on winter. I’m done. I have decided to enter into the time-honoured tradition of Canadian Seasonal Denial. When I first moved back to Canada, the rather optimistic outfits I saw (pastel colours, the occasional pair of flip-flops) would make me giggle. There is a sense here of “I will make spring happen” – if I act like it’s warmer, the weather will follow suit.
And so, as my first act of denial I purchased some yellow tulips. It’s been so long since there have been flowers in the house that I couldn’t even find a vase! They are currently housed in the measuring cup for my immersion blender.
I’m already feeling better. Now if only I could find my flip-flops.
