Amid all the worry, and all the complaining, and all the work...if I'm honest I have to admit that this winter has been simply...beautiful.
The blues and periwinkle of today - all day - from early morning until dusk were just like nothing else I've ever seen in real life. Yesterday, as the inches of snow piled up I took this picture of our periwinkle bedroom...
...and then today, the periwinkle was outside in the sky - in all directions and made more vivid because of three adorable bay boys punctuating each view. With the stalls and sheds cleaned and buckets of ice broken and scrubbed, I finally took the time to really look around.
If you click on this one, above, you can see a funny video of Pie trying to roll in the deep snow. He was sleepy and seems ridiculously chubby and slow and lethargic. Of course, my Foggy-boy had to stand tight against me as I made the video so you can hear him breathing heavily into the microphone.
Tomorrow, with the ice storm arriving, and Sunday with the supposed (_?) inches I will probably eat these words, but...thank you Mother Nature for this lovely winter. It has been hellish and horrible and peaceful and serene and periwinkle all at the same time.
