Holly Cow! When winter comes, does it have to arrive all in one day? I’m thinking working up the physical acclimation, mental readiness, emotional stability that can handle all that white. OK, I may run a bit short on the mental stability on any given day, but you get the idea, right? So before I go to bed Thursday, I go out to do my, uh, stuff, and it’s green and grassy and all around pretty acceptable.
Friday I got out of bed early to do meditations with Mom. A while later she decides I need to “go outside”. Fine with me- I like it out there. Green, grassy, WHAT??? What the??? This is not what I was lead to believe was in store for me. Hundreds of acres of WHITE stuff. Cold white stuff. It was landing on my fur, my face, my nose.
And it was swirling in the wind, I couldn’t get away from it. This snow was very distracting. It actually made me look like little black leopard with white spots:
But just as I thought this was the worst day of my life- Atti to the rescue! He comes running around the house and gets me so excited about this winter wonderland. We got to chasing and dodging and dipping. The misery of it was long gone- this stuff could actually be fun!
I guess this is a pretty good day.
