Back to Happy Thoughts

Ok, ok, that last post was kind of downer…so on to happier posts. I was struck today, not by a car on an icy road, but by the beauty around me. There was a fresh coating of bright white snow on the ground when I woke up this morning. I am no fan of the hazards that snow and ice present, not to mention the fact that it has to be darn cold in order for it to happen. It is beautiful tho. Snow has a way of making everything look so clean. I can no longer see the ratty muddy yard or be reminded that my car has never enjoyed the benefit of a proper washing. All I see is white...crisp, clean white.

I worked from  home today because I didn't feel like braving the mountain roads to get to work. In addition to work, I got a lot of things done around the house and got caught up on my TV. On one of my many trips to and from the bedroom for various reasons I found myself enraptured by this sight.

Spring! Im my house! Honest to goodness proof that warmer weather isn't far away. I have The Hubby to thank for this. Heck, I can't even grow mold. It is entirely his Green Thumb that provides me with sights like this. Prior to his addition to my life, there were no plants in the house. I mean, Mint is a weed, and I couldn't even grow that!

So, today I am thankful. I am thankful for the beautiful snow. I am thankful that Spring is on it's way. I am thankful that flowers now grow in my house. But most of all…I am thankful that The Hubby is here to bring such beauty into my life. Our life.
