It's been bitter cold out and there is not a blade of green grass to be seen. I am craving the warmth of the fire.
I am wishing for the feel of Winter Rye running through my fingers, and garden soil under my fingernails.
As beautiful as the winter scenery has been as the snow refuses to melt off the trees giving hope of a warming trend,
personally, I think it's time ~ time for it all to go away.
Leave us with puddles to jump, grass to run freely in,
and flowers to smell once again.
I am not ungrateful. Our trees and ground have needed the moisture so we have been blessed with plenty of snow that will melt into quite a spring drink, come May.
It just gets so long, our winters, and this one is not quite half over. We do love at least ' something ' about the 4-Seasons we experience each year. I love the beauty and walking the yard on warm days above zero, Bill loves to plow and plow and plow, and the grandloves Love the piles of snow Grandpa makes for their tunnels and sledding.
It's been unnecessarily icy cold this week so I'm grumpy. Do you know how unpleasant it is when you step outside and your nostrils literally freeze together and the icicles hang off your eyelashes? Don't breathe too deeply or your lungs will feel like an instant brain freeze. Now, That's miserable.
If you really MUST go out in this unbearable stuff, do bundle up and move quickly to your vehicle that you have had previously warmed.
( our last New vehicle purchase before my guy retired, was a Ram truck. One of my requirements actually came with the truck. Since it's so blasted cold some winters, and so long~I wanted to be able to start the truck from in the house with one of those double clicky things on my key. Do you have one? It's the best thing ever, going to a warmed truck rather than sitting there with my knees knocking together and my teeth clicking while I wait for the truck to warm...I know. but it IS great. )
That's the way we do it up north.
Stay warm the rest of your winter, and Happy New Year!!!
Now to find a toasty fire.... If Bill were to read this, he'd suggest I go fire up the wood stove.
