Some bloggers post a random five. It’s a collection of five snips which are a paragraph and not related. I always enjoy them. Here is my random five for a snowy Sunday.
Snow, snow, snow — We are 10 inches from breaking the local all time snow accumulation record and I’ve been really cranky about that. It reflects in my blog so my goal is to be upbeat, enjoy the beauty and drink more. I will embrace each snowfall as if it were my last and revel in how glorious nature is. Yeah, I know. It won’t last for more than five minutes then I will be cranky again.
What! Are they crazy? —There are some good things (very few) about being snowed in. I’ve watched more winter Olympics than I ever have in the past. I have seen somersaults and twists and whatever done in midair with either skis or snowboards. I can’t help wondering how someone tries that for the first time without visions of dying.
Don’t overlook a gift berry! — I don’t think robins are smart birds. I put out some very luscious blueberries and there were no takers. We are completely snow-covered and all my holly berries and crabapples are gone. Was there a special on worms at a local restaurant?
It’s a small world. — We went out to dinner at a local bar last night. It’s one of those places where everybody knows your name. Two of the beloved husband’s adult children are visiting. They all live in Denver and one of the bar’s key managers comes from Denver. They had a great time comparing the best of the Denver bars. Not much talk about the Broncos though.
Can it be a peek of spring? — There is a new week coming with a snowstorm predicted for Tuesday (of course) but the temperatures are also expected to start soaring. “They” say we will be in the 50s next weekend possibly hitting 60. I remember 60. It’s not quite flip-flop weather but I may be able to peel off a layer or two to dance in the sun.
This is for Sharlene!
