I guess not... I've got a cold and snow mixed with hail was coming down heavily yesterday. Oh well, it's only the middle of March. Plenty of warm weather ahead.

But mixed in with the nasty weather and cold we had  couple of really beautiful days! Walking down to the transit center was thoroughly enjoyable and there was one glorious day where I didn't even wear a coat!


The last few days it's been switching from rain to snow to hail to sunshine back to rain. I have to say I'm getting a little tired of winter clothes...


But Spring really is beginning to make an appearance in some areas. On my walk to the bus stop there is this  one house that is painted a really bright blue. Right up against it a cherry tree is blossoming and the contrast between the pink of the cherry blossoms and the blue of the house is lovely.

There's a pussy willow right next to the bus stop and one block away there is a carpet of deep purple crocuses. I can feel myself getting all excited inside.

Eighties Tuesday

The Help

So we're already two and a half months into 2012. So far it has been a pretty good year for me. My job has been going particularly well. I've also been reading a whole lot more.

I finally got around to reading and watching The Help. Both the book and the movie were amazing! 

 I could totally relate to the heroine "Skeeter".

There were several hilarious moments that made me laugh out loud. Like the chocolate pie... ;D

And Celia... Her story made me cry.

The colors and the clothes in the movie were fun. The excessive amount of Coke drinking made me thirsty.......



Minny, the one in the middle was so funny! :D

 It also had its sad moments... I came very close to crying several times.
The book was amazing as well, I read it on the way to work and back every day. It was so hard to set it down. 
I want to own both of them, definitely a re-read AND a re-watch for me.
