On A Sunny January Afternoon
My, my, my... Could the weather folks be more wrong? I don't think so.
Months ago they told us--they insisted--this would be the longest, coldest, snowiest winter we'd had in years and years. A real horror story.
Ha! So far we've had the easiest, sunniest, most beautiful winter I remember in all our nearly 19 years in Western New York.
Lesson totally, totally learned.
When weather people make dire predictions, especially ones months in advance, just smile. Be prepared for the worst, ok! But keep expecting the best. Do not allow predictions to bring dread, for dread is ridiculous. Dread is a form of fear and of worry and ruins otherwise perfectly wonderful days. Avoid it at all costs.
Gotta run... Need to go and enjoy more of this glorious sunny afternoon at Hobbit Cottage where everything feels better, even Winter.
And I hope your Winter is amazing, too.
