This is my first foray into the "(Pretty Much) World Famous Mama Kat's Writing Workshop", so I hope I'm doing this the right way. The prompt that I chose for today's post is #5 ~ Share a photo from last summer that brings you back.
Although I chose this prompt on Tuesday, when the sun was shining and we were enjoying an almost "snowless" winter here in the Northeast, it turns out that it couldn't have been a more appropriate choice or come at a better time.
This is what's going on outside my window as I type this post:
While I sit here trying to recall the warmth of the summer sun and the sweet smelling flowers in the baskets and boxes on my porch and deck, tears are dripping steadily into my Nantucket Blend and I'm debating whether to shoot myself or just run out in front of the next truck that comes rumbling down the street with a load of *snirt in it's plow blade. *snow + dirt = snirt
OK. Not really. I'm much too vain to have a closed casket and after the bullet or the snowplow did their messy best to put me out of this misery, I wouldn't have a choice, now would I? Besides... I knew this was coming. I told my hubby that he wouldn't be out on the golf course quite as soon as he'd hoped to be. (is it wrong that I took a little bit of joy in the tellin'?) This is Murphy's Law at it's nastiest and it happens every. freakin'. time. that we've had a "mild winter" here in the Northeast.
So, I guess I'm going to have to keep looking longingly at those photos from last summer and reminding myself that March 1st snowfalls never stick around for long. Who knows, maybe the temperature will suddenly shoot up to 70 degrees and it'll all be gone by tomorrow morning and the sun will come out and... Oh, who the he!! am I kidding? The weather man said that it's supposed to keep coming down until the wee hours of tomorrow morning, with further accumulations of up to 2-3 inches of this cold, wet crap.
I guess I'd better keep those summer photos handy...
