You know that old saying “If you don’t like the weather right now, wait a moment. . .”? Well, that’s where we seem to be this winter.
which was followed by rain. For two days. Rain. It’s been doing this a lot this year. Today we have snow, tomorrow we have rain. Overnight it freezes and rain over snow in my driveway equals ice. Thick ice. Slippery ice. Be very careful when you walk outside ice. Old people with brittle bones stay away ice.
Disguising the ice on the driveway. Making you think it would be safe to walk there disguising. Not advising to be cautious, and if you ignore your inner warnings and believe what you see, what you will hear as you find yourself falling very suddenly to the ground is “the devil made me do it!” accompanied by an evil cackle. That be one of the weather devils you heard. They have been very active this year. Just ask people on the east coast, they’ll verify that for me.
Just enough snow to make it mostly pretty again where you do not have to walk. Sunshine, precious, glorious sunshine. Sunshine to chase away my sunshine deprivation syndrome, the one that was threatening to take over my life and induce a lot of anxiety. The weather forecast says we are to have a few days of sunshine. I have all fingers crossed that this time, this one time, that forecast will be correct and will not change its mind first thing in the morning. I am not going to wait a moment. I am going to sit in the sunshine and soak it up. Inside the house, because it’s cold outside.
I’ll soak up the sunshine until I have – enough.
