The winter of my discontent
It’s almost impossible for me to think about freakin' butterflies when it’s snowing. Again. Sigh. Really? More snow? And it’s not just a few flakes – it’s a complete whiteout with driving wind, drifting snow, icy roads and a lot of angry people in mid-Michigan – including me. I’ve had enough. I get it.
