Oh dear, this is not good. All these 40 degree temps we've been having, causing rain and mud the past few days, are making me feel as if spring is in the air. It's tricking me into thinking that any day I could see some cute little daffodils and fresh red rhubarb shoots poking out of the ground. I'm starting to daydream about soft breezes and longer days. Oooh, just thinking about spring makes my stomach do a little flip flop. But I can't get spring fever all ready-- it's only January 6th!! So c'mon Sariah. Enough with the wishful thinking. Think cold and icicles...think snow and sledding and hot chocolate....think rock solid chicken waterers....think icy windshields, dangerous sidewalks and warming the car up for 15 minutes before going any where.... because winter is certainly not close to over. In fact, I just realized it's been only 3 weeks since it officially started! Aaaaahhh!

I feel kinda sorry for you, Sariah. However, I'm having the opposite feeling. After the incredibly miserable summer, I need it to be really cold so I'm actually looking forward to warmth again. But I don't think it's even dipped below freezing yet and I'm just not ready to face the unbearable humidity and heat again. Send some of that winter over here, we could use it.

Hi Josh! I loved your smile box of Iwo Jima (how do you spell that?) I had just finished reading about World War II and the battle there.

I didn't realize Japan was hot and muggy like Okinawa. Are you not far enough north to possibly get snow? I've seen beautiful pictures of Japan covered with snow and all those monkeys hanging out in hot pools but that is probably on the northernmost island....

I love how you weave in and out of the positive and negative trying to convince yourself. Fun post!
