Looking outside right now it's hard to imagine spring and summer will ever get here! Mounds of snow blanket every surface, the windchills continue to persist at nasty subzero temperatures, and the sunshine is little more than a deceptive tease of warm days to come. But it's true. Graduation at Merrill High School is exactly 13 weeks from tomorrow.
So, despite the refusal of winter to give us a reprieve at present, we've got to be planning ahead. That means it's time to order graduation photo announcements for the Class of 2014, graduation party announcements, extra wallet photos for exchanging with friends before they all scatter for the summer and then head off to college, and any other gift items or orders you've been procrastinating.
Before we can blink, the grass really will be green and ready for mowing, the mosquitos will be back and buzzing in our ears, and the Class of 2014 will officially be high school graduates!
I hate to rush the year along, but I really can't wait for this winter to give way to those warmer temperatures, can you?
Meanwhile, don't forget to get your orders in during this cold snap so we can all enjoy the budding flowers, warm breezes, and the sun on our shoulders when Mother Nature finally turns her thoughts to things of spring! I can't wait to throw off these layers and head outdoors when the opportunity arises.
Until then, bundle up, cause it's cold out there! Windchills are expected to get down to around -30 degrees Celcius again here tomorrow morning.
P.S. I can't wait to shed these wool socks for bare feet and flip flops!!!
