Blizzard : Before, During and After
|( My Poe in the snow)|
Things I pondered whilst awaiting the plow: we complain about how stressed and tired we are and how we need more time off, then Mother Nature snow's us in and we complain that we can't get out of the house. It sucks shoveling all that snow for sure, but we are a given a choice as to the memory we make of it...
We made ice lanterns.
We typed letters to faraway friends.
We made our Soul Silly
We dug out...
|(The Big Dig - S digging out our neighbor)|
and we dug in.
|(Sweet Potato, Walnut & Goat Cheese Taco)|
We made ice cream out of snow!
|(Blizzard 2016 Flavor!)|
We tasted icicles!
|(every flavor of sky)|
We stuffed our car full of sleds and pals and went sledding.
Our neighbors decided to carve the mound of snow into a fire ring, complete with snow benches and that night we enjoyed a bonfire under the full wolf moon with wine for the bigs and hot cocoa for the littles.
When we remember the blizzard of 2016, we will remember that beautiful night together around the fire...
and the stars...
and falling into bed smelling of wood smoke and moonlight...
and we'll remember all the fun things we did, not how many days it took to get plowed. out.
We will always remember it as the one when we made magic out of a mess.
