“Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s so delightful” could have been written for our Chicago-area weather the last week. Snow, cold temperatures, and frigid windchill have ushered us into winter…and I’m fine with that. I went for a walk this morning with a friend who has two dogs. We walk once a week in almost all sorts of weather. I found that my years-old ski gloves are still warm and wonderful. 🙂 Truth be told, the cold kept away people from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, so I was able to walk in and immediately get the tag for my van. Gotta love that!!
This week, the Photo Challenge theme is “Anticipation.” I’ll eschew the first things that come to mind at this time of year: family being all together for Christmas, the house being decorated, Christmas Eve service. But what does that leave me?
Those of you who know me know that the place dear to my heart is in the mountains of Wyoming. I feel anticipation for all road trips, but that one fills me with joy. I (and then we) have traveled the same route more or less since I was in college many, many years ago, so I see familiar spots as we drive along. But this is the sight that makes my soul brim with happiness almost too great to be contained, because it means we’ve almost arrived.
