Snow Keeps Me In, so I Write

March 25, 2013

I went to bed late last night and the snow had started to fall. When I woke up this morning we had big fat snow flakes falling and my woods were white.

Here late at night the snow is still falling. Long icicles hang from the eaves of the carport. 

Will Spring ever come this year? I love snow. It is beautiful to look at. We used to go outside every time it snowed, dressed in heavy clothes we would not have worn in south Georgia where I grew up and lived over half my life.

The first year we were in this house, it snowed five times and always on weekends. I said it snowed for Barry. He was always home with me and Kodi, our Samoyd, on weekends and the three of us could romp outside. Kodi loved the snow which he had never seen until he was eleven years old. 

But now, I don't play in the snow. I am careful when I walk on the steps, afraid I might fall and no one would be here to help me up if I broke something.

I am ready for sunshine on my shoulders, flowers nodding at me as I pass by, and a nice day for Tiger and me to take a walk. 
What are you looking forward to in Spring?

I'm looking forward to getting outside and playing in the dirt! Can't wait to get into my garden...

I hate to brag, but I think spring is finally coming to Wyoming. It's sunny and 57, and the snow is almost gone. I'm looking forward to sitting in my back yard and writing. I think fresh air sometimes fosters creativity. I hope you get some spring weather soon.

Paula, what do you grow in your garden? Food or flowers or both?
My garden is just a few pots on my deck, but I enjoy playing in the dirt there.

Abbie, Wyoming is such a beautiful state. I'll bet spring is nice there. Fresh air fosters creativity for me, as well.
I hope you are motivated to do some great writing with spring.
