Oh, the weather outside

I am ready for spring. I want to wake to the birds chirping. I want to open my window and smell the freshly cut grass. I would love to put on my flip flops and go for a walk, smell the flowers, and eat ice cream.

I'm just not a winter fan. Sure, the snow is pretty, and I enjoy skiing, sledding and making snow people. However the fun quickly fades as the driving conditions are icky, I have to scrape my car windows every morning my husband scrapes my car windows every morning, and I can't go outside without 10 layers of clothes!

Anyhow...

I was getting restless staying in the last, well, long time. So my husband and I went for an afternoon drive. He didn't tell me where we were going, but I didn't care. I just wanted to get out of the house!

We ended up at a nearby waterfall! It was nearing sunset, so the photos aren't the best, but it was very cool (both cool/amazing and cool/cold!). I love how it is like a moment frozen in time...



As we rounded out the path, I was getting colder and colder. Then I heard the leaves and blurted out, "See, even the leaves are shivering!"

I found it strange that so many leaves were still on the tree. Tough little buggers.

    I'm ready for spring too, but spring quickly turns to summer here. And I can really do without summer.
