It’s a winter wonderland here today.
It’s been snowing on and off for three days.
Last Wednesday we had no snow at all.
On Thursday I didn’t go to work because of snowsqualls.
It really hasn’t been that bad a winter so far, so why am I sooo ready for it to be over?
Because I want to be out in the warm sunshine planting flowers in pots on the deck, enjoying the sound of the waterfall, and watching the birds bathe in the pond.
I want to see the pink and white crocuses popping up in the lawn, and smell the scent of the lilacs almost dripping in the spring air.
I want to walk around in bare feet and feel the grass between my toes.
I want to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, and green peppers in our raised vegetable beds. There’s nothing like veggies fresh picked from our own garden.
I promise I won’t complain about the heat or the humidity or the dry and rainless days.
I promise! I promise! You believe me, don’t you?
Wiarton Willie didn’t see his shadow this morning so that means we’re going to have an early spring here in Ontario. Yay!!
I sure hope he’s right!!!
In the meantime I have to say that winter looks absolutely beautiful here today. Especially with a fire in the wood stove and a hot chocolate spiked with some Bailey’s Irish Cream.
