I finally went outside today and took a few pictures of our snow,
it seems to have snuck up on us very suddenly about a week ago.
Trust me I was not ready, I still had water in my fountain,
plants in my flower beds, leaves to be raked, and plenty more to do.
Today I sat on one of the chairs and breathed in the fresh air.
That was heaven in itself, the air was so crisp and fresh,
After a few breaths I felt as though I was slowly coming to life,
as if the strings that had been attached to my limbs were being kicked off.
I threw a few snowballs at the dogs, they seemed dumfounded to see these balls of white
disapear as they splat on the ground in front of them.
Yes I had energy once more, so I decided I would shovel some of the walks
for exercise and to help my husband. It was that really heavy wet snow,
I went slow but sure, sat and rested a few times, threw more snowballs and proceeded
until the job was done.
It felt warmer, still cloudy, but somehow warmer,
Back into the house I went and made myself a hot cup of tea!
The dogs were just barking and when I opened the back door,
I heard the most beautiful sound, it was that of a bunch of birds,
chirping, playing, dancing,
as if they were sent by my friends whom also danced
and they sang in my heart today as well.
I grabbed my coat and went and sat delighted at how the day had unwound right before my eyes!
It was beautiful. peaceful, serene, refreshing, entertaining, delightful.
For a while today
