last day waiting

Posted on April 14th, 2014 by mountain girl  |  4 Comments »


It’s ten degrees outside, but the snowstorm has stopped and the sun is out.  There’s a fire going in the wood stove, we made lunches, and the kids trudged through the snow to the bus.  It may not feel much like spring here, but it still feels good in a whole different way.  Life is more than fair weather, right?

Dadda will be home today and we can’t wait.  I don’t think we’ll even have to shovel our way out to get him. The poor guy will probably be in shock, coming from two weeks in eighty-degree Georgia, lol.  We’ll wrap him up nice and cozy and feed him something hot, and he should survive just fine.  He’s a rough, tough cowboy, after all.

Then again, he’s had to work in a windowless, air-conditioned room for 12-14-hour days–and I’d take a cozy, sunlit house in Colorado snow over that any day.

So come on home, boy–we’re waiting for you!

    Beautiful light. I always love those cold days with bright sun. The sun makes the air sparkle. Here’s to a safe trip home. Be well.
