I feel like we cheated the system because of the really beautiful and warm days right before the onset of bad weather. On one of those unseasonably warm days, I hiked. I took a 5 hour hike through some areas that must have feet of snow now. It was beautiful, quite, peaceful, and a great work out. I love to feel sore after an adventure. Jack and Earl accompanied me and were great company. They are the black and yellow dots in the picture. That hike can keep me going for this winter season. Just the thought that I get to do that again, meaning, hike unencumbered by snow, makes me happy. So bring it on, I can do it. A bit of snow is nothing.... or maybe not. It really is coming down out there. Sigh.
What do you do to make it through this snowy time? Silly that I am asking a question on this blog. It isn't normal for me. It will be embarrassing when there will be nothing in the comment section. Hint hint.

So the butterflies found at a craft store are the part that makes me happy when I walk by. I know it is fall and everyone is getting out the leaves and pumpkins. Those things depress me. At this time of year I need to be reminded that spring will come again. I am justified in feeling this way. The snow can be taller than the boys, snow non stop for days on end.... and stay til May. Butterflies are how I protest winter. Or rather, butterflies are how I keep the inside of my house bright while it is so cold out there.
