A Quick Trip

Looking up 
I lay in dried leaves, gazing up at a cold blue sky.  

“Tom. Lie down and look up. It’s gorgeous!” 

“Yeah, if you like spiders crawling all over you.” 

With some coaxing, he joined me. 

Wind swished through pine trees that swayed rhythmically in the breeze.

Pauline, life truly is an adventure, isn't it. Our land here in Nebraska has been blessed with a nice cover of wet snow. Since I am retired and there's no school today, I get to sit and enjoy watching others dig out and make an attempt to get to work. Ah, I can reminisce and think about those days of yester year when I too was one of those digging out to get to work. Maybe I'll wander out later today and clean off the driveway and sidewalk. It's become a joy to do that chore now instead of a dreadful thing to endure in order to get to work. Life is good in Nebraska for this household. Have a great smelling the roses day.
