I set out for a walk to enjoy a long awaited warm day before another brief winter blast hits tomorrow.
I can't wait to see the flowers start to bloom.
Yesterday I started thinking about things that really make my heart sing, and at the top of the list was roaming through flowers in the summer.
I used to love winter. There was ice skating, tobogganing, and building snowmen. Those days are gone and I have found I don't take joy in winter the way I used to.
What I long for is wading through rocky bed creeks.
To get out and explore the back roads of Kentucky again. To find hidden treasures. To find inspiration for my photography.
Life seems to somehow stand still for me in the winter. Maybe these older bones just don't take well to the cold anymore.
Things are still brown here, but I know the daffodils are hiding beneath the earth, just waiting to make their appearance, and when they do I will welcome them, because to me they are the harbingers of spring.
P.S. Thanks so much to everyone who was concerned about my x rays. I have been having pain in my knee that was replaced last year and it got so bad last week I couldn't walk down the stairs. They x rayed it and it is fine. It is scar tissue breaking up. Probably from all of the lifting I have been doing getting my booth set up. He said that could happen for awhile, but when it gets broken up it will allow further movement in the knee. So that will be a good thing.
P.P.S. I have hopefully fixed my no reply blogger problem, and am back on Google Plus again. I guess I will have to check it once a week as it seems to keep happening to me. Thanks to Nana Diana for letting me know.
