|This bundle of sunshine is what I had to leave behind in NL. I cried on the plane and several times since then. This grandma needs to be with the boy. (Working on that one, aren't we God.)|
I had a wonderful trip; it was the first time in over 20 years that I'd gone home in the winter. And wow! There sure was lots of snow; you couldn't see over the snow on the sides of the road where the plow had gone through. Nor did it stop falling while I was home. Spring is always later on the west coast of Newfoundland than here in Nova Scotia.
So in spite of my aching heart (and arms), it was so pleasant to come back to bare pavement and smaller snow piles. We've also had a couple of days of beautiful but cold sunshine which just lifts my spirits and makes me breathe deeper & sigh. I can "feel" that spring is on its way.
This is what adorns my office desk this morning. An unnecessary extravagance because a girl needs to be reminded that winter is on his way out ....... especially when she had a week's backload to catch up on.
I hope there's lots of sunshine in your life today.
