Outdoor Wedsnesday - Not Always Sunshine & Roses
My contribution to A Southern Day Dreamer's Outdoor Wednesday is a little revelation I have had this week, join me won't you...
Sometime last week I took these few snaps of the mountains and the sky because it was unusually gray...the kind of gray I had forgotten even existed until I visited Ohio during Christmas. I love the gray sky mornings...but only because they are so few and far between here in So Cal, The poignant part of that statement was I have LONGED for those skys since moving here 22 years ago. I use to say "I miss the seasons", or"oh, what a pretty gray day" and "yeah - it's snowing!!" And then when I went back east in December for a week - I was amazed at how much I missed the sun. So I guess it's official, (here's the revelation) I'm a California Girl. But I don't want to miss lead you...we do get gray mornings, some snow and every two years or so, some really good rain. So here you go - El Nino hit last week and I am officially done...I want my Sunshine back.
While the palm trees covered in snow is fleetingly pretty to look at, the snow is fun until it's slush and I'm really digging the new lake in our backyard - I am ready to be done with Winter. Well, off to work - have a great day and Tata for now!!
