September 15, 2018
This was our drive in to work yesterday, down our range road, out to the highway to take us in to the Big City. The roads are wet, not icy, which we were thankful for. It's too warm to really stick but the snow does accumulate on the grass and unfortunately, on the crops down the road. Too early!
Our view coming down the hill. You can see the Big City but it's foggy and there is actually whole back drop missing, lost in the haze and low clouds. I was thankful for a warm building and hot tea at work and later in the day, the sun did shine for a bit. However, today, guess what we woke up to? Yes, you are correct, large, slowly falling Christmas Eve flakes .... I'm grateful we aren't in the path of a hurricane. I'm grateful we aren't experiencing the heat of a drought. I'm grateful earthquakes aren't a thing in our region. I'm grateful we got thru this Summer without a tornado. But really Mother Earth? Snow in October? Snowing all day today, through the night and back at it for Sunday. Today, I have counselling sessions with grieving clients in our hamlet. At the end of the day, our board of directors for the festival we've created for next Summer will arrive for a meeting to talk about where we're at with our plans and what is next on our journey. Home to our warm and cozy cottage. Dinner, time to kick back and watch a movie or favorite show, play with grandson and then an early night.
Tomorrow is like Christmas for me .... it's the Annual Dollhouse Show! We wait all year for this day and despite the snow, we'll trek in to the Big City to spend several hours marvelling at the small creations and fulfilling my list of things I'd like to try and find for the dollhouse. Be prepared for a very photo focused blog spot on Monday! In the midst of grief, political woes and tons of snow, a day like tomorrow feeds the soul and reminds us that there is still good (and fun) in the World.
How is the weather in your community?
Do you have big plans for this weekend?
