Snowy Sunday

This morning I awoke, went downstairs to put on some coffee, and opened the front blinds to this…

Oooo so pretty!!!  Truly a winter wonderland!  It had rained last night before the snow began, so the snow had frozen to all the tree branches.  It was glorious!  Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty much feeling as done with winter as everyone else around here, and eager for spring to come, but it’s hard not to come alive with excitement when winter puts on such a magical show.  This photo doesn’t do justice to how lovely a scene it was.

Out every window was a beautiful sight.  Then I looked out my back door at this…

That’s when reality started sinking in… I was going to have to clear away all that snow.  And it was HEAVY!  But coffee first!  😉

As I was getting all bundled up to head outside, I decided not to get right to work.  I think that’s been my problem.  Well, not a “problem” so to speak, but I’ve been on “survival mode” all winter (I’ve kind of had to be) and haven’t taken as much time as I normally would to be out in it and just enjoy the beauty of it.  I do love the snow…

Usually I’m one of the first ones out there and my neighbor always comes out with his snowblower to snowblow his measly 5 feet of sidewalk just as I’m finishing up.  But this morning, he came out around the same time as me, and as I was digging out my car, he did this…

I live on a corner and the side of the house is the longest area of sidewalk for me to shovel.  I want to say it’s like 50 feet, but I’m not sure, I could be exaggerating a bit.  Anyways, this was a TREMENDOUS help to me, like oh my gosh you guys, I’m so grateful!  Thanks so much, Bill!

 

I need a snowblower…

 

After digging my car out and shoveling my driveway, I decided to take a little walk down the street before starting on the front sidewalk.  The sun was up and the clouds had parted to heavenly blue skies.  With the snow on all the tree branches it was so gorgeous…

 

For some reason, I just kept walking.  Probably because it was just so magical, everywhere I looked was absolutely beautiful.  I purposely kept my phone in my pocket, I knew I couldn’t truly capture the beauty I was seeing anyway, and I just wanted to savor it.  Eventually, I got to the river and came upon an old train bridge and took out my phone to snap a picture…

I used to jump from that bridge into the river as a kid.  What a dummy haha!  As I stood there enjoying the sight (and the childhood memories), a beautiful male cardinal came to serenade me.  His bright red feathers, a brilliant contrast against the snowy branches, his song such a delight to hear.  It felt like a gift just for me.  ❤

 

Going for this little walk was just what I needed on this snowy Sunday.  And it was much more fun than shoveling.  😉

 

Although, I do love “Limey” my little lime green shovel…

He’s gotten me through a lot this winter.  🙂

 

I’m off to run errands now with my Seester.  Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday, or whatever day it happens to be when you read this.  Wishing you beauty and joy!
