Darn Slow Thaw

P1000867Okay – the snow is melting, WE are thawing out. But it’s happening way too slow for my liking. Com eon already! Get on with it! Every day I look at the weather forecast and it tells me temperatures are supposed to go into the double digits – and every day they barely manage to get past 4 or 5 degrees.


What’s worse that the weather is the fact that I’m writing about it. Is this the best I can do? (apparently so)

On the plus side, it’s been a good day. Let me tell you how very little it takes to make me happy. Yesterday, while walking in Hemer Park with my poles complete with snow baskets, I lost one of the baskets. Darn it! Yes,, they only cost about $5 a pari – but still. How inconvenient! And I really noticed the difference this morning, hiking in the snow and having my poles stick.

So, this afternoon, I retraced my steps through the park, eyes fixed firmly on the ground – and I found my lost basket! Unbelievable! Very exciting!

Yes – they only cost $5 a pair (I already said that) but it just made me so darn happy to complete my set again and not have my poles stick in the snow!

So there – that’s my day! What an exciting life I lead!
