You'd be amazed how lying to yourself works. Give it a try. I really was happier last winter than in any previous winter since we moved here.
As I was perusing photo files trying to decide what to back up, I found this card that never got posted:
Can't you just taste the citrus? When I put on my critic's cap, I know this card isn't perfect (somehow, the black box and sentiment seem totally separate from the citrus slices, but I'll be darned if I can think of how to unify them right now other than drawing the box in yellow, and I'm not sure that would look good either).
When I put on my sunshiny day cap, however, I think this card is SWELL!
I'm wearing my sunshiny day cap today. My critic's cap is buried in a bin in the basement with my summer clothes. It's much easier to be critical when the sun is shining.
It's a beautiful, sunshiny day here in Ohio (at least in my head). I hope this card makes your day sunshiny, too!
