Snow Day!

Sam nudged me awake this morning to take him outside — okay, actually he jumped on top of me and knocked the breath out of me, but that’s beside the point — and the first thing I noticed when I opened the door was the happy sight of snow.  Snow on the ground, snow falling from the sky, snow on the car (well, that one wasn’t so happy).  After all of the emotion and the pain of the day(s) before, it felt like a clean slate.  It was a new day and I felt better; I got through another rough patch.  (So take that voice in my head telling me I’m too fucked up to make it.  *kapow!*)

Thank you to all of you for being there.  ♥  And thank you to Sam (yet again) for making me feel better.  ♥

Snow, Snow, Come This Way

One of the things that upset me about Christmas this year was no snow.   I’m in Ohio, in December, and on Christmas Day we had the window open!  (Granted, I was cold but Mom wasn’t and since she has seniority … well, you know how that goes.)

So to cheer myself up, I’m posting a few photos from the only day we have had snow so far, November 17th.  Sigh.

My favorite bush. I planted this in 2013 and it survived! Go me! 🙂

If I try really, really, REALLY hard, I can pretend I’m in the Pacific Northwest instead of Ohio.   (okay. not really.)
