May Day

There is something wrong about it being cold and snowing (yes, again) on May 1.  And I was feeling generally grumpy and whiny and wimpy much of the day.  To counteract this weather downer and gloomy mood, when I finally got dressed in the afternoon (having spent most of the day in my exercise clothes after a pathetic, for me, 3.5 miles on the treadmill), I jazzed up a black t-shirt, grey sweater, and jeans with some spring-like accessories:

First I added a scarf that I bought earlier in the week at Target (during a brief warm period, when it got into the upper 60s and a 1 mile walk to the pedestrian mall was quite pleasant -- the return trip was not because my left shoe, which I hadn't worn since last summer, decided to rub a huge blister on the back of my foot that popped painfully within minutes of leaving the store, so I limped home with my treasures) and then realized, Orange with green accents?  Gotta be a bunny with a carrot!

Robert got me this pin for Easter several years ago, and I love how jaunty and self-satisfied the rabbit seems, holding this gigantic, fresh, gleaming Carrot of Goodness.  I had forgotten about this pin entirely until I happened across it last week when I knocked a box out of the bathroom closet while trying to extricate my hair dryer.  Before our move, I had donated most of my costume jewelry to Goodwill, but of course I'm happy I kept this prize.  Wearing an awesome rabbit elevated my mood several notches for the rest of the day.

The pin is darling! That rabbit is certainly proud of his carrot. Looks great with the scarf, too.
