Winter is stubborn

Holding tightly to the cold

Spring waits patiently

I do wonder if spring will ever actually get a grip on things.

It’s snowing again today. Right now as I am writing this. It’s not heavy, but it’s sticking. I guess the last couple days were cold enough to cool things down. The previous storm stuck for a while but then melted pretty much all away by yesterday afternoon.

There is still, however, snow piled up in the yard from all the previous storms. It is compacted and hard and frozen in some places with sheets of ice underneath from melting and freezing.

I like snow. I like watching it come down. I like looking at as it coats the ground and the trees and the rooftops. I like how it seems to make the world a little quieter.

But really, I think I’ve had enough snow for this winter just passed and now spring.

I’ve been told that the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that the coming winter will be like the one we just had. Hoo boy. Good to know that in advance and good that we learned a few things about our new home to help us through the next one.

I'm a writer. But I'm also a wife and a mom to a couple of fur babies. You could call me a cook (but never a chef, I'm not that good) and provisioner as well. Laundress? Yeah. Probably. I design jewelry and I crochet. But mostly I love to write. I love words and how they sound. I love their meanings and origins. I love stringing them together. And of course, I love to read. Thinking about it just now, I realize that what I love most is life and the people around me with a special place set aside for my wonderful husband, our adorable dog and our inscrutable cat. It's the world and the people in it that fuels my writing. So thanks to you all for being the amazing beings that you are.
