5 inches and counting.....
Meet "Susie the Ski-crow." She was one of 23 scarecrows I helped build at Q and Elvis's elementary school. It was an incredible, wonderful, enlightening and creative experience that I wouldn't trade for anything.
I highlight Susie because as of this evening I have 5 inches of snow on my sidewalk. Yep I do. Uh, huh, it's true. I'm not kidding.
So, we are planning Halloween (oh yea, we are. The count for the party is currently at 50 and I'm sorry but have you been to our house? It so does not hold 50.) Don't tell Evite.
But, we are really planning skiing. What do we need? Who's feet have grown? Who is taller than they were last year, certainly not me! In fact, it's possible I am wider, does that count?
I'm saying "goodbye" to Fall. You were marvelous, full of wonderful autumnal colors. I will miss your reds, oranges and yellows. Hello white. You are here and here to stay. Most likely until April. Without pulling out the Christmas carols, I will welcome you. We are ready to enjoy the wonders.
Brisk fresh cold air
A reminder of what it feels like to be alive
Like diving into the Atlantic ocean in the middle of summer.
Oh there you are my soul.
