'tude tuesday: february feast

Spring is next month! Spring is next month! Spring is next month!

I've been waiting since November to say that, like so many other folks I know scattered hither and yon. Imagine my excitement when it's actually March. Talk about attitude at altitude!

I'm fond of February for several reasons. Not only is it the last full month of winter, but it's the month of Love - of hearts and flowers and Be Mines. And, of course, there's also Mama Love.

It's also the month when the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show hits the Valley of the Sun. I'm looking forward to a little Phoenix fun in just a matter of days now. Scottsdale always presents some great opportunities for shopping (mainly of the window variety in this economy), feasting (horse show falafel...yummmmm), people watching and thawing out. Not to mention the fun of watching all the pretty horses.

Gotta earn the trip, though, so it's back to work for me.


  1. Do you by chance suffer from a mild case of SAD? (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

    I must apologize for snorting when you wrote "horse show falafel." I guess it's the rhythm and unexpectedness of a funny-sounding word. Sorry.

  2. I agree. "Horse show falafel" almost sounds like another, classier name for "road apple."

    And, yes, I think the SAD gets me from time to time.
