See Things For What They Can Be

An Extra Day

Because of the snow that fell yesterday, there was no work. I didn’t do much of anything today. It was a good lazy day for me. I can really wait to see what it will be like tomorrow. The roads will be frozen and the people here are not used to these conditions. 

This is my second winter here and this tops last years snowfall hands down. 

Still I’m remembering the words of many who live here…we don’t get a lot of snow here. 

I really hope they’re right…don’t get me wrong…I like snow, but not this much in an area that is not used to it. 

A warm up is on the way which should take care a lot if not all of the snow.

On a very bright side note, this could be last weekend.

Yeah…I’m smiling

You’re Kidding Me, Right?

I know it’s too early, but I’m sitting here about ready to call it a night and you know how they do the weather bytes…well we’ve got snow on the way. A twelve hour trip is turning into an even longer one.

I was hoping that we would at least have a stretch of dry pavement. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. 

At least I know ahead of time and not going to be blindsided. 

Gotta go now, I have a phone call to make.  

There Was A Time

It snowed today but not nearly as much as some other areas. I like snow and all, but I do have my limits. No, we didn’t get this much.

This is a bit much for me. . There was a time when this much snow used to be fun, but I wasn’t driving in it. 

I was too busy playing in it without my gloves on.

But that was soooo much fun. The carefree days of snow. 

Walking to school when the snow was up to our knees. Mom would make sure we were bundled up pretty good. Thinking back, I did have gloves to where to school, I didn’t play in them. Now I remember why I didn’t where the gloves to play in…they always got soaked. That didn’t make for a good combination.

OK….enough of the gloves already.

I was wondering today what it’s going to be like (snow) when we get to Dayton.  

I’ll have a chance to see some old friends and do some catching up. That’ll be nice.

I plan to make the most out of this trip, but for now… 

I’m about out of gas….

Winter’s Time

Winter is surely upon us as it stayed in the 30’s but it felt much colder with the wind. I had a hard time keeping my hands warm, as is the case with each passing winter.

My hands have taken a beating over the years; some from my own young, not really thinking what long term effects playing in the snow year after year with no gloves, might have. I’m sure I am dealing in some way with that. 

I have almost always worked outside during my years of employment. 

Today was brisk. I was dressed for it but it’s tough to keep the hands warm continually and I can’t do what needs to be done in thick heavy gloves. 

So I take a few minutes to warm the hands. 

You know what?…I will take these temps for winter time any day.

Again I am reminded that we don’t get snow here.

I think I will miss that at some point. I have always liked the snow. I would love to sit in a window and watch it fall. I was fascinated at how it seemed to just appear out of nowhere from the nighttime sky, the street lights setting the stage for the wind dance; that’s when the snow would swirl and dance in the wind before giving way to gravity…that was always my favorite snowfalls to experience. 

I’m listening to the radio right now…R&B…it’s perfect for what I like to do when I’m posting or designing. It sets the mood…I can really relax and unwind…let my emotions of the day slowly drain…

Speaking of designing, I haven’t been. Not a stitch. Not a swirl. Not a thing.

That did a lot for me. More than I had thought…until now. Now I know I was too engulfed into my work. I learned something from that…I can still have the zeal, but I can also take time for me. 

I just feel that if I’m not doing something, then nothing is getting done. Does that make sense to you? 

I’m going to be my own MONSTER. That’s gonna suck…I’ll have to keep an eye out for that. 

So I’ll have to take a look in the mirror and ask myself…
