Spring is fighting to get here--bird are chirping, the temperature has been above freezing--but it's just not coming quick enough. There's still snow on the ground, ice on the lake, and the need for a winter coat. The weatherman's promising temps will reach the 60s tomorrow(!) but we've been teased with these temperatures before, only to get another six inches of snow the very next day.
I've been daydreaming a lot about a relaxing tropical vacation. A cruise in particular so I wouldn't have to worry about renting a car or feeding myself. Plus, I've never been on a cruise and have always wanted to go on one.
