Southern Snowlands

 

 


I never thought I'd be the one to gripe about snow...but I am. As a mother, a skier, a person with errands to run, a creature of comfort...I want it gone and spring to get here...someone pointed out the other day that March really is still a winter month...I wanted to cry right there, snow is fun as long as you can play in it. Here you just make due with it and that is no fun...I want to plant something, wear a T-shirt and no layers, want to ride my bike without having to face a 30-minute mumification process and most of all I want to stop being cold.

Gus is hot-and-cold on snow...he loves it for 20 minutes, then he hates it, because he can't keep his mittens on or his hands out of the snow...he loves to eat it, the greyer and crustier the tastier apparently...he relieshes a good leftover slab of snow wherever it can be found...but he isn't much on throwing a good snowball or building a snowman...probably most likely because his mother isn't much for neither...we either need to move West or the Bahamas, I'm thinking...

I'm still busy bookkeeping for some friends/clients so the posts will be sporadic for a while, count yourself lucky...all I have going for me is griping about snow...

You're right, I wouldn't have expected you to be sock of it, but I get it. We're having spring-like weather here, so I am sure it's on its way East to you. And then, in May, when it is snowing here again, I'll be griping. xo

Well, he does look awfully handsome with his peaked hat in the snow, in any case! I have been watching the south in amazement this winter. Our winter here has been relatively mild (relatively). But I am ready for spring too...and this morning I saw eight bulbs sprouting in our front garden! That's eight out of about 25 (the punk squirrels ate the rest) but it's eight more than I expected to have left! THat's the promise I need: spring is on the way!
