As I drove home yesterday evening in the very beginning of a snowstorm, the visibility was extremely poor and the roads were beginning to get slick. I was not feeling thankful at all for this snowstorm, or the fact that I had to go out in it to meet with my bookkeeping client. Once I was safely home and my hubby told me the dogs had already been out rolling around in the fresh snow, I felt much better.
This blog post is going up late this morning, because we woke up to 15 inches of snow, and I’ve been busy playing with some happy dogs. No, we haven’t been out playing in the snow yet. I’m afraid it’s going to be a bit too much for Cricket with her bad heart, and Luke with his bad knees, to try to run around in it too much. Also, if I throw a ball out there, it’s just going to disappear in it anyway! However, the dogs have ventured out there a couple times, and when they come back in, they are energized and want to play!
Many toys have been dragged out and I only sit and write this now as they have finally settled for a nap after all the fun. That is what I’m thankful for today – that our 13 year old beagle and her much younger brother are excited about fresh snow and wanted to play. Playing with them and watching them has made for a joyful morning around here.
I’m also thankful that neither my hubby nor I need to go anywhere today. It’s going to be a while before we can get out anyway (and it’s still snowing!). So I’ll leave you with some photos of our fun morning, and hope they bring a smile to your day as well. We are also thinking of those around the Northeast who have had it a little more difficult than us – we hear there are a lot of power outages in other parts of our state. We’re thankful to still have power and to know the worst we’ll have to do is dig our way out of this.
