Sunshine, Lollipops and Roses

I made it through Jan 24th, apparently the most depressing day of the year as proclaimed by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a U.K. psychologist. Today is crisp and beautiful with brilliant sunshine and a gentle breeze - a perfect Florida winter day. The season has progressed enough that the sun is back filling all my windows with sunshine. I don't care what the calendar says, winter is over for me. I went from being totally blue to absurdly chipper in 5 days and now that silly Leslie Gore song (see title of this post) is looping in my head and getting on my nerves.

I see that someone found my blog by searching for ski porn pictures. This is most interesting since I have never written about skiing or porn but I looked for myself and on a certain search engine, I am fifth on the list for ski porn photos. How cool is that? BTW, I have been on snow skis once in my life about a million years ago and I spent more time on my butt than swooshing. I haven't even been on water skis in too many years to count. I don't have any porno connections but I did watch Taxicab Confessions on HBO last week. Does that count? And, I can't help but wonder what ski porn pix would detail? Do they wear apres ski boots, do it in the snow, wear mittens? What? How? I can't even imagine. Golly, I lead a sheltered life but who cares -- MSN thinks I am into nasty snow sex photography.

Friends keep giving us oranges, grapefruit, tangelos, blood oranges and navels so I have been cooking with or making fruit salads every day. Today I made ambrosia with fresh citrus, coconut and cherries. Yesterday, I made a pretty fruit salad with citrus and kiwi drizzled with honey and then served on salad greens.

Aren't kiwi fruit delish? I love the taste and that furry brown outer skin is too cool. I find it easier to slice the fruit and then remove the peel from each slice instead of peeling the whole fruit first.

Tomorrow, W4D and I have dueling dental appointments. This is a good thing since he can drive and I can take an extra Xanax for my dental anxiety. As a reward, I always go shopping and buy myself gifts after dental apointments. I wonder if the Lubricator will take me shopping? If I forget to blog, chalk it up to binge buying.... or dental drugs.
