so this is what a few days from work feels like. Interesting! A haircut, manicure, red wine and even a bottle of champagne. Not bad. I’m thinking about driving into city tomorrow. The roads weren’t good due to snow so I didn’t get to Medicine Hat this weekend to reconnoitre. I will however try again on next days off which will be a long weekend for me. Either that or a spa.
winter continues unabated both here in Cold Lake and at camp. Apparently this is unusual. I thought I’d be sick of winter by now but I’m still enjoying it. Granted it does annoy me at times as I get nervous driving on icy roads. Last week I even had a hankerin’ for spring. Winter is necessary because without death there can be no life. It’s always bittersweet. I try to remember that without snow and ice and deathly cold winds there will be no summer strawberries…or my favourite; peaches to swirl around in whipped cream. Yup, I’m not hard to please ;)
Without winter there are no spring cherry blossoms nor all of the flora and fauna engaging in some serious sex. Without the spring there would be no fruit, grains or new life come summer. Without summer there would be no autumn gilded in gold or turning leaves or apples. Without autumn we wouldn’t have winter to contemplate or be thankful. We wouldn’t have a season to bunker down under blankets, forget ourselves and just wait patiently for spring…as nature intended.
