Winter Landscape

Happy Thursday everyone!

I’ve been outside shoveling for the past TWO hours. And let me tell you, Jackie Warner and Jillian Michaels- they can’t even COMPARE to snow shoveling! I. Am. Exhausted. Phew! But despite the stinging cheeks and frozen fingers I have to admit, there is nothing like an arctic morning to set your mind at ease. I stood outside for a brief moment before I began to work and soaked it all in. It was so quiet the only thing I could hear was the whir of birds flying to and from the feeder. The sun was peeking through the trees and the fresh snow was bursting with light. And I stood, my breath suspended before me, in awe.

Is there anything so wonderous as freshly fallen snow?

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!

    The picture is gorgeous!!! But bah-hum-bug to the snow, the brown slippery icky snow. LOL We’ve had one too many snow days already, which means no school for the kids!

    Hahaha! That confused me… I saw the post said ‘by Justin’ but when I read the text it seemed different from the way he usually writes… then it was signed &J2. That made more sense. Love that shot of the snow. Sounds bracingly beautiful.

    I had very similar feelings this morning as I stared at the driveway covered in over a foot of snow. It *was* pretty. Until I started shoveling it. 3 hours later, I’m flippin exhausted and ready to curl up on the couch under a heat blanket.

    We had new snow today, too. We’ve had more so far this year than in any 3 years in the past! But is does look beautiful.

    Um, yes – the sounds of waves crashing on shore. In fact, that trumps your wonderous freshly fallen snow. A lot. *not enjoying winter in Halifax, NS* :-)
