Snow days! I love snow. Always have. Never got that much growing up in Texas. Wished for many a "White Christmas" or a "Snow day" from school. Received very few thru the years.
We moved to Oregon in 1994, leaving Texas in February. So I was greeted by much snow on the way, and the first night we were there - oh what a snowfall we had! I was a bigger kid over it all than our kids were. Lol
Lived in Oregon for 14 months, then in later years lived in Idaho for 7 years. Loved every moment of the snow. Course, it melts and makes a mess ... and goes away. But while it is here - wow. I have been told "Snowflakes are kisses from heaven" - perhaps it is just a longing heart that aches so much to believe those words.
I will be going back thru my journals during these 112 days and sharing some of the experiences, thoughts, and emotions of the last few years. I started reading my writings yesterday - some made me smile. Yes, there were also tears as I remembered. Most of these writings are found here on this website under "Archives" (on the right of this page).
I have decided to take these 112 days of writings to another format as well. Thinking past these days - looking at a book (?). A book is what Rick wanted me to do. Perhaps not one copy will ever be sold, but I shall at least be able to say that "I tried". So, these 112 days can also be found @ Coffee Love.
At some point I will submit that blog for publishing as a book. I shake my head at the thought of anyone wanting to read what I write. But for Rick ... I shall do this.
Cabin fever. The struggle is real. Just one of those days I wish - - sigh.
Doesn't do one good thing to wish.
Just breathe, Margaret. Just breathe.
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
