CAME IN LIKE A LAMB
It has been miserably cold, and so much snow fell during February.
But since Friday the weather has started to ease up a bit.
The snow is starting to look slightly mucky, which can only mean one thing:
Now I have lived in Ottawa my whole life, and should have learned by now not that winter doesn't go away without putting up a fight.
But I can't help but think about how beautiful life will be this spring.
Today I have the windows open, and the sun is beaming through our entire apartment.
I feel alive.
I want to be able to go on walks down by the river again.
I want to take a blanket and go to the field across our street and daydream.
I want to show my son our favourites spots in our darling neighbourhood.
I want to no longer feel like a hermit and to enjoy the outdoors again.
So winter, do me a favour: go away quickly and gently this year.
