Excitement filled the air as the snow fell to the ground last night. Anticipation in the possibility of playing out in that snow.
Well, I kinda don’t like snow.
Unless I’m watching it from the comfort of my home, curled under a blanket while sipping a Starbucks latte. (Boring? I know!)
I’m usually the photographer on the side lines.
Call me Mamarazzi.
Seeing the beautiful blue sky reminded me that though the winter is long, there is still beauty to appreciate in the desolation that winter spreads. That if you look close enough there are signs that Spring will return. Just like some days are rough, there is always a brighter and new day tomorrow.
So, as I laid there looking up at the blue sky (and listening to Gabs kindly remind me that snow is “for playing, not for sleeping Mom”) I was happy.
Just plain happy that I was given another day to spend with my family and to enjoy this snow.
Did you play in the snow? We haven’t had much the last few years for us to actually enjoy it, I’m glad we are having some for the kids to enjoy. What’s your favorite snow activity? I wish we had more snow to go tobogganing or even boarding in. Alas, boarding is only saved for getaways. Well, I think if we still have snow on the weekend, we are going to make snow forts with Hubby!
Til then, cheers m’deres!
