In Between Storms ....
Saturday dawned cold, clear and bright. After all the snow and gloom of the past few weeks, it was encouraging to see the snow. This is what it looked like at my house:
I'd like to get the snow off the roof of the shed; but with no snowshoes or long-handled rake, I don't know when I'll get to that shed next! The driveway has been cleared nicely though.
With one of the worst Februarys on record, a person had better take advantage of the sunshine and get out of the house. Let's head to Lunenburg.
Walking along the waterfront was a little chilly with the wind. But the sunshine was so beautiful and the air so clear and crisp. Look at how pretty Lunenburg looks against the white of the snow and the blue of the sky. It was nice walking weather.
There was a visit to a local consignment shop (I'll post my treasures later); and a stop at one of my favorite Lunenburg Shops Mosaic Treasures (where my Xmas shopping may have begun). And then there was a stop at Sweet Indulgence for refueling.
What a lovely treat it was to take the time to just quietly walk and feast one's eyes, to actually have an opportunity to enjoy the simplicity of a fine winters day -- instead of the usual noise of complaining about yet another snowfall or storm.
But I don't think the silence will last very long. Today's forecast calls for 25 cm (10 inches) of rain. Oh the mess this could cause! So far, the rain is pretty gentle out there. So, I'm hoping that Old Man winter has decided to settle down for the rest of the season and just rest a bit before he has to leave us for good.
