It has started the “S” word here. Do I dare spell out this dreaded swear word? Yes I dare. Snow. Four days ago I was on my couch in shorts and a t-shirt thinking about throwing on the AC and yesterday I was scraping snow off my car. Stupid, stupid, stupid province I live in. I think I shall go into denial. I will think about my potential vacation in Mexico next February. I will think of my oldest boy considering a 6 month stint in Australia (I’ll think about him hugging Koalas but I will not think about him skateboarding down the mountains they have for streets or about him learning to surf when he can barely swim…..) I will gaze at warm climate creatures and pretend the “S” word is not covering my grass…..
