By now I’m sure a lot of you are already tired of the snow. Here, however, snow is a rare event hence we make a little go a long way. Although given the length of our driveway that’s not very hard, lol.😂
To wake up and see our front yards last Sunday looking like this was more than we’d dared dream. It really was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
How glorious it was to wake up to a world covered in a dusting of snow yesterday. It was nothing quite like the epic six-foot we had in one 24-hour period in Kitimat last February but we didn’t care. It was snow!
We had the beauty of a fresh snowfall without any of the shovelling or worry. It really was quite delightful having the opportunity to simply sit back in the lounge chair appreciating the beauty surrounding us before it disappeared.
On hearing five years ago we were moving to a town where it snowed, the first words out of my son’s mouth was that he was going to be jumping off the top deck. And that’s just what he’s done each and every winter since we arrived.
The last winter was particularly kind to him with the snow almost level to the back fence. What was a boy to do but jump repeatedly into the fresh snow. I’m sure I enjoyed watching him just as much as he enjoyed jumping!
WINTER is this week’s One Word Photo Challenge word from Jennifer Nichole Wells. If you aren’t already familiar with Jennifer’s challenges, please head over now as Jennifer is sorted through until 2019 with her challenges.
Oh how I love her style!
Of all the places I could find happiness and dare I say it, tranquility, it’s at the kitchen sink. However, it’s not for reason you may think. There’s no denying I am quite the neat freak but that’s not the reason I love my kitchen sink.
It’s the view of the valley and mountain beyond that I love watching. Mother Nature has truly spoilt us in this part of the world with her constant beauty.
Adding snow to this already beautiful scenery constantly leaves me gasping in awe. Then to add a majestic Bald Eagle, that is what they say… the cherry on the top! How blessed am I?
Looking at this forever evolving scene outside my window is definitively my Happy Place, this week’s challenge word from the Daily Post.
