Attitude adjustment

I've been moaning and groaning about this awful winter weather long enough. So, instead of hustling the kids off to bed last night and sitting down with some quilting, I bundled up them up for some nighttime fun in the snow - after all, there is no school today (AGAIN!!) so no need to go to bed on time. We sledded, we built a snowman, we had a major snowball fight. We were out there until nearly 10 PM. And you know what? It was FUN! All I needed was an attitude adjustment. Hopefully, that attitude adjustment will last at least another week, because we are supposed to get a whopper of a snowstorm this weekend.

While shoveling before work this morning, I decided to snap some photos. After all, I've lived here 7 years, and this is the first time we've had any snow to speak of.

The view down the hill from my driveway

My road - great for a scenic walk any time of year.

One of my two favorite trees on our property - this one is beautiful in any season, and I can see it from my bedroom window first thing when I open my eyes in the morning.

Home! I usually don't look back on my way to work in the morning, because I am always so tempted to turn right back around and stay there!

The creek is no longer raging, but I'm sure it will be again once all this winter's snows melt.

So, no more complaining about the weather. Bring it on!
