It seems that old man winter is certainly having his or is it her way this year in sunny southwestern Ontario. I mean really, I have had enough. When the winter approached this year, I told myself that I would be good and kind to the old man. I would embrace whatever Mother Nature threw our way. Well, let this be the day that I officially say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I am done embracing this never-ending cold, white filled season. I mean after all, I don’t ski, I don’t snowshoe (yet my shoes seem to always be covered in snow, slush and white salt), I hate to wear a hat (unless I am golfing) and my back is getting much to old for shovelling my driveway (now I just drive my 4×4 back and forth in the driveway until the snow is nice and flat). Yep the lazy man’s way of shovelling. It’s warm and I get to listen to the radio while out there.
Normally, we (my family) have a break from the cold and spend a few weeks in the Caribbean. That usually splits it up nicely. This year we planned a different trip, later in March (which you will all have the pleasure of coming along with me on via this blog) so perhaps that is why I am feeling those long dog days of winter…. Of course, the day’s are getting longer, I mean it’s just after 6 pm before it starts to get dark now but dammit I want my deck back!
Looking out the window the snow is softly falling…. I am sitting by the fireplace…. it may be cozy but I would rather be wearing shorts and sipping a frozen drink.. that (frozen drink) truly is the only type of ice I am a fan of… which by the way… February 22 is National Margarita Day… who came up with that date…. must have been someone in the sunny southern hemisphere. I will celebrate regardless……
Well I have no more rambling to do on this Friday… Have a great weekend… close your eyes and lets all pretend we are here……..
