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!


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.


  1. Very cool pics!

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