This morning when Roxy and I woke up it was snowing lightly, with just a light dusting on the ground. By the time I finished fixin' myself up real purty for the day, the snow was falling quite heavily and a couple of inches had piled up.
Roxy had on her sad, 'I want to go out and play, Mom' face. So I bundled up for the second time in about an hour and she and I went out to play and run and eat snow.
I had a couple of regrets. One was my first cup of coffee which was now cooling to luke warm on the counter.
Thank goodness for microwaves. I need to have my coffee served to me undrinkably hot. That habit started years ago before I had my own fancy-dancy espresso maker. I came to the conclusion that if I was going to spend my hard-earned money on a cup of unnecessarily expensive coffee, I at least wanted it hot enough to last me for a bit.
The second was the good hair day that was quite possibly ruined because of the need to wear a hat. Finally after two months of immensely disliking my last hair cut, my hair has finally gown out enough to where I can style it in a way that looks halfway decent to me. I can quit asking for paper bags at the grocery store.
Since Roxy is so entertaining when she is trying to run and play and eat snow all at the same time, I put all the regrets out of my mind and proceeded to get cold and wet while tromping around with her. She loves her treasures and this morning I had to help her carry back a branch that she just had to have. At least it wasn't frozen coyote pooh.
Just a little while ago, Randy and I had the bright idea to bundle up and take the four-wheeler for a ride. The first change in plans was when we thought that I could hold onto Roxy. Roxy wasn't having any of that. She only lasted one quick trip around the driveway. Randy put her in the house with instructions to start a fire and then we very slowly made our way to the main road and back. Randy drove while I did the parade wave to the neighbors.
There is quite the winter wonderland out there now. It has been snowing all day long and we probably have close to a foot.
A perfect afternoon for naps, movies, video games, hot cocoa and snuggling. Roxy never did get the fire started. She's grounded.
Have the BEST day ever!
