welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Monday, April 11

about that third snow...

Well, as previously posted, the saying goes "There will be 3 snows after the forsythia bloom." I'm here to tell you that old tale is true...and it happened in our part of the Midwest all in one week!

Now don't get me wrong...some folks are grumbling, but it's a fact.

I. Love. Snow.

Truly, I don't remember a time when I wasn't in love with snow. For me, there's nothing like the cozy feeling of just hunkering down with a favorite book or classic movie, hearing the sounds of a crackling fire in the fireplace, making s'mores over that fire, and enjoying the delicious aroma of a homemade soup simmering on the stove. It's a signal to slow down the usual break-neck speed of life and do nothing but ENJOY.

Another wise saying goes like this...

"Time flies...whether you're having fun or not."

And that, I can testify, is absolutely true.  So let's enjoy every minute...

Whether it's this...

or this...

"In all of living, have much fun
and laughter.

Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured."
