Melissa started planting the poinsettia crop yesterday !@#$%^&* While I love the holiday season – thinking about shopping, lines, icy sidewalks makes me crazy! But then as I itch my recent sunburn, I look forward to the beautiful snow covered trees, the twinkling lights, the generally good mood of my family and I smile. It’s great to live here on Long Island where things change to allow the pros to out number the cons of the seasons. Just remember to stay in the moment, beautiful sunny days is where it’s at right now. As the tiny poinsettia plants grow so will my love for the cold. Just not right now.
