That Was It?

The meteorologists were predicting a big snowstorm last night, but it didn't quite happen. Remember when you were a child, those of you in northern parts, and a "snow day" would shut down the schools? Such excitement!

I felt a bit of disappointment over the big build-up and then finding just a little snow, followed by rain. I'm not sure why I was deflated, as it would have meant more to shovel. Truth be told, my young neighbour was out first and cleared the sidewalk in front of my house so I only had the driveway. He claims he needs more exercise. I maintain he's very thoughtful.

Is it snow? Is it ice? Is it melting?

Can I really fault Mother Nature with presenting this odd winter when I can be rather indecisive at times? (Soup or fish for dinner? Tidy or knit? Move or stay put for awhile?) 

Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life a little rain must fall,
      Some days must be dark and dreary.

The mourning doves must be fans of Longfellow; they just carry on, have a little lunch, get on with the day. I'd better put this rambling to an end and do the same!

 But before I go...
Two more things:

Comments? I love to read them and will get back to you.


  1. Karen, you are so right when you say Mother Nature is indecisive. Night before last they were predicting 4 to 6 inches of snow. Got up yesterday morning and no snow. Last night they didn't predict anything and got up this morning to about 2 inches. I don't even listen to the weatherman any more.
    I love the morning doves. I haven't seen mine all winter. They were around last summer
    Have a good weekend.

  2. Hi Karen,

    Love the photo of the doves.

    No snow here in Ireland, thank heavens!
    Hope we don't get any at this stage,
    I just want sunshine and blue skies!

    Have a lovely Saturday Karen.

  3. Hi Karen,

    Yes, that one is always a favourite too!
    We got more snow this morning, just listening to the roar of snow blowers up and down the street...
    Have a great weekend!
    I have joined you as a follower
    All the Best,

  4. We didn't get as much as predicted, but did get more than you. We have had several doves around today as well. Enjoy the weekend.

  5. I I feel like spring is already here. I love your blog with its beautiful photographs and wonderful writing. Thank you for blessing me today :)
