Friday: Frozen and Frenzy

28 Feb
“Nothing is as tedious as the limping days,
When snowdrifts yearly cover all the ways,
And ennui, sour fruit of incurious gloom,
Assumes control of fate’s immortal loom” 
― Charles BaudelaireParis Spleen


It was snowing most the day, big beautiful flakes that blanketed the roof tops and lawns in a shimmering veil of gossamer. OK, enough BS. It was a bloody cold and yucky day! I was so cold and crazed that I sat under the covers with a cup of tea and my ipad on my lap until well past noon. 

I was going stir crazy. I found myself playing the piano. Guess what? I don’t know how to play piano, that’s how bored I was. I washed dishes, cleaned the kitchen, paid some bills and went upstairs and tackled the craft room. Now, that’s a project! I can spend hours just sorting brushes and markers. But, I did stumble upon another stash of long lost watercolors that I’d forgotten about.

My craft room will never be neat or complete. It’s a work in progress, with no beginning and no end. Any artist will tell you that there will always be another project and you can never have enough art supplies.

Well, even though I was crazy and bored, I have to admit, the snow was beautiful. And, this being Texas, it won’t last too long. 

This is the view from my front door. That’s as far as I went. I didn’t even go out to get the mail. Maybe tomorrow?

I like this idea. Now, where’s my hair dryer?

    Well, I did look out at the snow and find it beautiful, just as I cursed it for preventing me going to the store for some decent food yet another day, just as I chided myself for complaining when the North suffers ten times more in comparison. I think, if we don’t have something to complain about, we’re not very interesting to others. It’s human nature to find something wrong and TALK about it. I cuddled up in bed twice this week and did two things I should do more often. I read a book for over two hours, and I too a nap (I actually slept!) in the middle of the day. Wow! Snow can create cathartic change. P.S. I love the watercolors. Perhaps they would sell well as cards on a spinning holder in your favorite little Art on the Veranda downtown McKinney.

      I’m glad you also saw the beauty in the lovely snow fall, and thought “that’s nice, but enough’s enough!!!” I have been a big old slug all week. Spring will be here soon…I hope. Stay warm and enjoy the quiet. Thanks.
