This is what my street looks like. And it has been pretty much like this for the better part of the last ten days. I’ve been out once!
I’m one of those girls that always wants snow. After this winter, I’ve changed my mind. I want snow that comes and goes as quickly as it came! I live in the South. I don’t deal. While I love tinkering on the home front, it is nice to get out a bit. And I really, really don’t like to drive over white stuff. Around here we don’t get much practice.
Honestly, I can only string but so many beads, read but so many books, before the walls begin to close in a bit. We’ve had three substantial snows in ten days. That is unheard of here.
Meanwhile, cabin fever has set in. In.a.big.way!
I can’t wait to get dirty. I want to go outside and scratch around in the soil. I want grab my rake and shovel and shed these winter woes. I’m new to yard work and while I suppose it shows, I’ve discovered that I really enjoy it. Hell, before last year, I didn’t even know how to put the lawnmower in reverse! Now I have a chainsaw, and know how to use it—and have been pruning and planting. I’m itching to throw some seeds in the ground and watch them pop up!
I want to open the windows, air out the house and blow the cobwebs out of my head at the same time. I need some exercise. What is it about this weather that has turned me into an utter slug? But alas there is hope. Watch this video. Could that be the sound of melting snow? I do believe it is! This girl is counting the days!
