I Miss Snow
Let me admit right up front....I am homesick. I am feeling like I am missing out...on the snow, the sense of community while digging out, the snowmen, the sledding, the hot chocolate, the shoveling, the blizzardy snow, the shimmering snow in the sunlight, the busy and crazy grocery store, the treacherous drive to that busy grocery store. I am missing my friends who are in the snow right now. I want to walk down the street and talk to Maureen and invite her over for cocoa and biscuits. I want to put candles in the snow to line my driveway with light. I want to drive to Ann's and sit by the fire and talk for hours while our kids play in the snow and possibly sit in the hot tub while the snow falls. I want to throw a snowball. I want to be stuck at home for several days and make warm food for my family. I would even enjoy getting stuck at work in labor and delivery and sleep in the hospital to work again the next day....and possibly play dodgeball in the hall while waiting for patients to show up.
I need to visit but I can't decide when it is the best season to visit. I miss the lush summer, the softly green spring with the pastel blossoms, the colorful and crisp fall and the snow. I miss the snow.
