Sunday Delight: Spring Ahead

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Did you spring forward?  Reset the clocks?  Well Spring is coming and I know a large part of the US is happy about that.  I don't know how they do it.  Snow for months and months with below freezing temperatures.  Not me!  No way!  I couldn't handle it.  Right now I am sitting in my office space with a cup of tea, flip flops on and a light sweater.  Anything more than this is just too much for me.  LOL!  I know I am a sissy when it comes to cold weather but every time I see the news about the weather on the East Coast it reminds me of that movie, The Day After Tomorrow.  You know the one?  When over half of the world experiences another ice age.  ARGH!!! 
Watch the trailer and see what I'm talking about.

Move to California everyone.  What about Hawaii?
Ok! Enough of that.
