Rain

I looked at the weather report and what does it say for the next 10 days? Rain! I don’t want rain, I want to look out my window and see snow. Oh, Mother Nature, hear my plea, please bring snow to me! 

I am only a few days in to the new school term and I already need a break. I am ready for a day to snuggle up under blankets, put on my twinkle lights and watch a holiday movie.

I know, I know, I am sorry for all of you who are cringing right now, Christmas is probably long gone in your house, but in mine I always have to keep one small bit of Christmas out all year long, just something teeny tiny. And, since we were having work done to our little cottage in the weeks leading up to Christmas, I only got to put out one teeny tiny tree and I haven’t been up the attic to put it back yet. So, that little miniature tree is bringing me joy on these dark nights.

I also have not gotten around to putting away my Christmas movies, and since I go to work before the sun rises and come home long after the sun has set, I am going to keep those movies out for a small while longer. Because, Judy Garland crooning away on my TV in “Meet Me in St. Louis”, a good blanket, the glow of a candle and Mr. Michie next to me, just makes me happy! So, please bring on the snow, I am ready!(Image found on Flickr)

  1. the REAL girl

    Hello jennie!!

    OK, you’re a woman after my heart- I am always troubled with taking down the Christmas things immediately after Christmas- almost like moving on to a ‘new relationship’ immediately after having a loss. I still haven’t gotten a new puppy after our dog of 7 years passed- it was sudden and I know no dog can replace him!! Anyway, off topic here: We have snow here…..and I’m going to do a blog with pictures of it later on. We had no snow at Christmas in Colorado, if you can believe that, but now there is snow. Most of my Christmas decorations are down, but I Christmas tree will remain for a wee bit longer….it’s so cosy looking at nighttime with its twinkling lights…..so come take a look at my blog later today or tomorrow and live vicariously through my snow and Christmas tree and be prepared next year for a much larger tree and a lovely holiday time!! My repair/restoration folks didn’t make it over today, but tomorrow they are tearing down the east wall of the kitchen!!!! I may have to move to another country; I won’t be able to face the destruction!! 🙂
    Have a happy day……and I so know the dark time of teaching—-do you get a spring break that you can begin to plan for? Reward yourself with little gifts of time and spoiling during this time; a manicure, a facial, a cup of tea? Every moment is a blessing….and this too shall pass….
    Hugs your way!!
