It is such a quiet month that we are in. A month of in between. It's right after the holiday season, weather is completely unpredictable. This week alone my girls have had 3 snow days, and we have gone from -27 with snow squalls to +9 and rain all in a matter of a day. Its a month when people are sluggish, making resolutions (maybe even breaking them!) and many are coming down with colds and the flu. ICK!
Walking through the Dollarstore and Michael's and they are already decorating for Valentine's Day and even EASTER!
That is something that I have difficulty wrapping my head around... the advance of the next holiday! Decorating the store for Christmas during the second week of November... while my house sat unadorned for a month after that.
It's cold and icky out, I do sit and wish for greener views, warm breezes and a sun kiss felling. But why rush it. Fact, I did get my truck stuck in a snow bank in my own driveway and cursed up a storm while trying to free myself. Blasting about how we should pack up and move to where it is forever moderate. My girls were totally on board for that venture. Lets do this mom! Then we looked around and were like, well, it is very pretty out. Pretty freaking cold!
After giving up, we ventured back indoors and I went onto social media.... first thing that came up was a meme about Canadian weather, and how in winter, there's no mosquitoes. Gave me a chuckle and I am very grateful for no bugs right now. No stupid flies covering my country house's windows, dodging wasps while opening the back door to hang laundry... being Canadian is very much Ying and Yang. Good and Bad, Cold and Hot, Snow and Drought...
I am completely rambling on in my musings and I shall stop before I get carried away about some other topic.
In general, only 47 Days till SPRING.
Only 56 Days till the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival.
Only 159 Days till Summer!
