Hope Sprouts

I remembered something yesterday. February is the time every year when I get bummed out. So going into it already on the edge does not bode well. However this February brings good things too. I have a trip to my fake sorority reunion/baby showers (the reunion is real but the sorority is fake), the impending birth of my nephew Sammy and tickets to a matinee of the touring company of Les Miserables. That should help keep me from sinking until March rolls around. Usually I plant and grow some seedlings in preparation for my garden and that helps me anticipate Spring. I don't have a garden this year but I can do some container gardening. So maybe we'll plant some seeds and see how they do in Keegan's window.
