sunshine on the garage roof today
It's quite sunny this afternoon here.
I'm struggling with this winter weather and all the snow.
We've had blizzards the past 3 weekends and thankfully we were away for all three, but, the evidence is out there. Lots of evidence!
I'm tired of wearing a down filled coat everywhere I go.
Tired of wearing low heeled boots that aren't stylish but oh so practical and warm and safe on the snowy, slushy streets and the mall parking lots. I don't get far. Just the mall and the grocery store. And don't forget a scarf to keep my neck warm until the day warms a bit and gloves for my hands. I don't wear a hat as it mess up my hair but the hood on my parka comes in handy to protect my head from the biting wind.
I go into the mall stomping the slushy snow from my boots, remove my gloves and sometimes my scarf and then I get too hot wearing my down filled coat.
I'm longing for the days of spring when we can just wear shoes and a light jacket or, summer days with sandals, bare feet with newly polished toe nails, and no coat or jacket!
Okay, not very pretty. They've seen a lot of miles.
But, they are bare!!
Speaking of polished toe nails.
Do you do pedicures in winter?
I like to give my toes a rest and let my nails breathe for a
few months. No one sees them for months anyway. They are hidden in socks and sneakers every day until sometime in April or even May when it might get warm enough to wear sandals.
Would you like to join me here?
Along the coast of N.B. last August.
Our front deck last June.
We could kick off our shoes, boots, coats, scarves and hats and relax in the sun.
It's okay to think about these things isn't it?
Yes, I think it is.
I just won't look out the window!
Cause I might see this!!
Are you tired of winter and all the snow?
Perhaps you enjoy it and perhaps you just had a big
storm (my friends in the US) that is an exciting novelty.
Three storms in 3 weekends is not a novelty.
And there's more snow coming again this Sunday for parts
of the Maritimes. I think only light snow for us this time.
How are you putting in the winter? Is it getting you down yet?
I offer you some spring cheer.
I hope you enjoy this last weekend of February.
