What Can I Say?!


 I'm about ready to go round the bend.
Instead of the predicted 1-2 inches of snow last Tuesday, we got 6 more inches.

And, I'd rather be in México!

In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
Long ago.
 


-Christina Rossetti
Mid-Winter, 1862

  1. Surprises here too. Weather changes every half hour from sun and blue sky to snow storms with strongest wind. Be careful and stay warm!

  3. Oh dear! It should be spring for you already, and the fact that you are not now in sunny Mexico makes it even sadder. I hope that your husband is recovering well.

    It is a lovely photo, but better looking from here where I am warm (hehe)

    Bises,

  4. Kate, this must be much harder because you had planned to be in Mexico and this winter simply doesn't want to let go. But you know the new snow will soon melt and you'll turn your face to an ever warming sun and be content. Hang in there!
