Snow and tranquility

snow day 5

The snow was beautiful today, it was light, fluffy and brought with it a warmer weather that made it a delight to walk from the mall to the car. When I got to the car U wasn’t so enthralled,  In the short time I had been in the mall, the car was covered in a blanket of snow that obscured all the details, leaving just the outline of the Rav.  The windows were in need of a good brushing, I’d also have to clear off the roof or the snow would fall and impede my view while driving.  Guess where my gloves were?

Noooo  you really  don’t want to know what crossed my mind when I realized I’d have to move snow from the doors and windows prior to opening the door with my sleeve. =^_^= … the little crystals of snow, were dainty and fluffy, they were floating around like little feathers.  I couldn’t help but appreciate their charm.  That didn’t stop me from realizing that they would all dive into the car as soon as I opened the door.   So be it.  After all my gloves would be inside, then I could start the car, and come back out and clear the car, AND if I was lucky the brush with the long handle would be handy. … … …. It wasn’t.

The drive home was slow….. like turtles all in a row we crawled.   Big trucks were turning and sliding around corners a seasoned winter driver, I knew to leave a car length between my car and the one in front,, more if I could. Those who didn’t chanced kissing bumpers.  More than once I had to double brake to deal with the mush and greasy road surface.  My adventure, its times like this that I talk to the Universe and count my blessings.

Life is to be enjoyed, and no matter what, I do my best to find the happy in whatever it is I’m living.  Even if it  is to walk into my “upset” room for a moment to vent, once I’ve done it, I can walk back out, close the door and move on.  Expression is a gift, try to be as creative as you can, if you hold back the negative moment will fester, if you acknowledge it, and give it is due, the moment passes.   Trust me, in life there is always balance, you can’t have “one”  with out the other..

Buen dia, Bonjour,Merhaba,Buongiorno

Hello, Hallo greetings to you in every way!  Isn’t it a lovely day, we had a new blanket of snow over night.  Everything looks so “winter wonderland” white! Looking out this morning, it was hard to imagine the trees with their fall colours of crimson, gold and multiple shades of russet and fading greens .Being that we are already into January, the days are getting longer, and soon, yes soon, in a couple of months the same trees that are looking like  wooden bark sculptures of gray/browns dipped in  crisp white snow crystals, will be showing off their new dressings of mint & apple greens, buds of tender pale shoots will be breaking through the branches that will have soaked up the nurturing rays of the sun, providing them with the nutrients they need to open up to their full splendor.

The PL calendar today, is about not being swayed by the past.  It says ” It is what you do from now on that count”  Another way of saying to live in the moment.  So much time is often spent on dwelling what was, or what could be, and again, if only….   We can’t relive the past, but we have every opportunity to make each day a day we will enjoy so that come end of day,  we feel that it was a day well spent.

The internet is abundant in quotes and sayings.  Where do they all come from.  Some are very good and thought-provoking, others….  Again it is all in the eye of the beholder isn’t it.  Today I plan on having a great day… what about you!!

This is not my back yard… LOL…. but I sure wish I could gaze on this vista with my own eyes.  Be there, to hear the water cold and clear slowly  make its way over the rocks.  New Zealand, the more I see of this beautiful country, the more I want to explore.  Maybe someday.  Who knows.  Meanwhile, thanks to you, I get to research and find destinations, we can visually enjoy from our desks.  Life is for sharing, thank you all for allowing me into your homes, I so appreciate you all.
