A Delicate Affair

She carefully carried them from grocery store to car, smelled them gently all the way home, 
brought them into the house (after giving them a tour of the yard) 
and then painstakingly placed each one in the vase.

She was in no shape to go anywhere all day, 
and besides that, the day's weather was less than welcoming. 
But by evening, she was eating again, we finished supper early and it was beautifully misty, so we went.

We both felt gloomy and trapped by the weather, 
but the prospect of visitors cheered the mood considerably.

First Awake

She woke first, as always, but let us sleep in. And thereafter began our Sunday routine.

The good with the bad

I cheered on the melting snow and she marveled in the growing puddles. 
Either way, we were happy for the spring sunshine.

Golden light

The time change hit us hard as usual, but the later sunlight meant we could begin another season of evening walks.

A Pulk

I'd never heard of a pulk before, but it made for comfortable cross-country riding for her, 
and we had the most amazing sunny morning in the deep snow of the Bow Valley.

She loves riding "up high," 
which is a boon to our grand plans of snowshoeing in the mountains this weekend.

The Inbetween

I identify with this. Especially the hair. And the soup. And the beliefs.


The perfect "snow day": blustery in the morning, warm, sunny and beautiful in the afternoon. 
We spent just as much time outside today as we did inside.

Whiteness Abounds

We shoveled twice today and could easily have done it again. 
Snowfall warning in effect and with nowhere to go, we built paths and angels and went for a long walk, in awe of the white mascara on the landscape.

We had to hunt all over for said "glasses," but she insisted that I must take a picture of her in them. 
A last escapade before bed.

Gently falling

They walked me home from work in the pouring snow. 
My heart delighted in the huge flakes and I wished I could stay outside til dark.

Sick Day

I left them with blankets and pillows to snuggle and commiserate on the couch 
and went for a walk solo, wonderfully lost in my thoughts.
