It’s Time to SPRING into Action

This winter must be stopped.


I know I live in NORTHern Illinois.
I know it’s technically still winter.
I know that Spring, lovely lovely Spring, does not officially arrive for three more weeks.

I know.

But none of that knowledge changes the fact that I am so… over… winter.


I can only imagine that the Goddess of Tundra is feeling mighty special due to all the lingering tributes. —
Because of your Snowmen decorations.
That’s right, I said it.


Those Christmas decorations that you just love because you can keep them out way past the holiday are what’re keeping it cold.

Put them away!
Pack ‘em up!
It’s time.


Take down the snowman banner that’s faded, torn and frozen ‘round the flag pole.
Remove the snowflake garland from the corners of the window frame.
Wrap up the fragile figurines in today’s paper and remember fondly as you unwrap next year that you made it till March 3 before you finished cleaning up from Christmas.

If you were one of those decorators that took advantage of the unseasonably warm November day to put up your icicle lights, well, those must come down too.
I know, it sucks. But this is the price you pay for that unseasonably warm November day.
(If you’ve had your icicle lights up since November of 2009, TAKE THEM DOWN.)

Let’s do this people! Let’s pack up the adorable Snowman collection.


Let’s call it a successful Snowman season and get on with the Tulip décor.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous blog, it’s only weird if it doesn’t work.
But in this case, c’mon, it’s time.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
