Welcome To Winter

Two pairs of pants, three pairs of socks, a pair of boots. Welcome to winter. Snow pants make me look fat, I will not wear them. My hoodie is not warm enough; my face is all red. Welcome to winter. Where is the other mitten? My favorite pair. One is gone. Lost out of my pocket. Welcome to winter. Everyone is coughing. Flu is rampant. People are mean. Welcome to winter. Children are laughing. Catching snowflakes with their faces. Licking their lips sore. Chapping their faces. Welcome to winter. Children are sledding, bumping into each other, rolling like puppies, Smashing their fingers, and laughing. Losing their mittens, and not noticing. Their hands are all red. They refuse to go in. They have never had so much fun! Delight is on their faces. Welcome to winter.

This reminded me of last year when we were deluged with snow. The first perspective was me... the second one- my dog! ;D

Rhona, I used to have a husky. He was practically lethargic every day that snow was not on the ground. When the snow came, even if it was just a few specks, he became super puppy, full of energy, rolling in it, with pure and happy piggish love - years younger again.

Thank you Connie. I felt like I should do both perspectives.

I have to say I am on both sides of this and often.
