You know it’s February when you’re driving along and notice that there isn’t a leaf left on any tree. The branches and trees are silhouetted starkly against the slate gray sky.
You know it’s February when you are drinking hot chocolate for comfort and remember only a month ago you were going to start a diet.
You know it’s February when if it isn’t snowing, then you are looking at piles of dirty frozen snow along the sides of the streets.
You know it’s February when you wish you hadn’t broken up with your boyfriend right after Christmas because now no one is going to buy you a Valentine.
You know it’s February because all the stores are decked out in red and pink hearts and boxes of candy were everywhere.
You know it’s February because every other TV commercial announces “A President’s Day Sale”.
You know it’s February because at the bird feeder, squirrels, pigeons and sparrows mingle unabashedly while gobbling up enough birdseed, peanuts and suet to survive the cold days of this month.,
You know it’s February when your dear friend, Helen’s birthday comes up on your Facebook page!
Happy Leap Year!
