Last night I dreamt I was canoeing. I was on an ATIS day trip. Sort of... A big group of familiar faces from summers past, an unspecific river, but full of the river rocks and colors I know so well. There was a bit of racing involved and a moment of being beached, some picnicking, and something else dreamy and mysterious that I can't quite recall now. (I should have written something down when I awoke this morning, maybe then I would have a more exciting memory of this dream...) At any rate, the weather was warm, I was having a good time, and I was in a canoe. The inspiration for this post:

Wow. I hadn't looked at this picture in months: there are those river rocks. Hi sunny river, apparently I dream of you. This canoe is not for traveling (unless you are a lilliput), but it is for picnicking. It's a serving bowl - cru d'etat? Chips and salsa? There are even paddles for spoons. (Remind me to tell you about the ATIS canoe trip when we forgot the paddles!) This canoe is eco-friendly, made in Mexico of 100% recycled materials.

Warm sunny rivers may be still be a ways off, but in the mean time let's all host a party in honor of them.
Sweet dreams.

I am over winter. Unfortch, winter isn't over. This morning I considered entering an ice sculpture contest as I chipped away at a block of ice and then drove away in it.

As always, my solution is to strengthen my personal batallions. Behold the latest addition. Lined in shearling. Totally waterproof. Uncannily streamlined - flattering even - for a hardworking winter boot (thank you toggle pulls). Strong, gripping sole. This is a boot you want on your team helping to kick winter down. Our other new best friend? Punxsutawney Phil.
