Give it ten minutes. Is there any place on earth that doesn't use that phrase to describe their weather?
This has been the winter that wasn't so far. Don't get me wrong, after 50+ years of living through Michigan winters, the charm of snow wears thin fairly quickly. I can still appreciate the beauty of giant flakes falling slowly to earth, but once they hit. Meh. Not so much.
But this January has been mostly dry and warm, and by warm I mean mid thirties to mid forties. Only a northern girl can appreciate those kind of temps as "warm"! Sunday saw the giant flakes falling softly and making a fluffy layer everywhere. Today, mid 50's weather turned everything into a delightfully balmy, but soupy mess.
I love how the snow shows up against the shed. I can see this will be the year of the great trim painting effort though. How can we love the chippy look in our homes so much when it looks this bad on a shed?
I'm rambling I know. I come home and putter. I haven't picked up the camera manual in at least 2 weeks. I can't get motivated to do much of anything this time of year. The doldrums of winter have set in and I look forward to wrapping myself in a blanket on the couch and dreaming the evening away. Does the lack of sunshine affect you the same way?
One thing I know, January, with it's dark days and doldrum feeling is over. Tomorrow begins the shortest month of winter and then...Spring.
I. can't. wait.
