WOW! Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
So we have been pretty socked in here for the past couple weeks. January has proven to be quite a weather event! For a person who glories in weather events, I must admit to being delighted in the beauty and magnificence of God & Mother Nature. The snow is coming down hard and wild, blown about by blustery bursts of negative ions the landscape is embraced by a velvety silver wildness. Turning into a white out.
I love this song by Natasha Bedingfield "Unwritten"
" Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten"
YES! Dance like you mean it, Sing like no-one's listening except God, feel the snow on your skin!!
One of my Bosses came up to fetch me out of the snow that my wee Toyota cannot push aside in its' two-banger-impotence even with chains, bringing me to work at The Country, and then taking me to the store after my shift so that I could get 4 cases of chicken quarters for the Kidz. My Other Boss, Tim from the MGC Garden Center (Website to be open soon! *open*open*open*) has already come to fetch me (read that: "rescue") out from the elements several times in the past years in order to come work.
I tell you, I feel Blessed. Life is Good.
My wee "Amy" Hebe is still valiantly flowering, although you can only see a teensy bit of color.
