It’s been the iciest winter I’ve ever experienced. I don’t mind the snow, the cold, not even the darkness so much – but when the streets are covered in ice it is really difficult to walk anywhere, especially for old folks. Some days it feels risky just to step outside. Plus, I miss my bike and my feet are tired of the winter boots. So:
Today I am thankful that the ice is slowly beginning to melt and spring is in sight.
Prompted by Ali Edward’s Thankful thought idea, complete with tutorial and downloadable overlay + mask for a photo. A quick and simple idea that I dig and feel thankful to take part of. Thanks Ali!
Oh I hear ya, we’ve had quite a winter here too. Luckily we’ve only had one or two ice storms and those scared me! The last one I walked to work by hugging trees, street parking meters, fences around stoops…lol.
My youngest daughter (a figure skater) would like to know if you can ice skate down the street. She has images of doing leaps and spins.
I have 10 postcards ready to send to you.
that ice is a trickster! a few weeks ago i put on quite a show downtown by slipping and falling on my caboose (and taking my daughter down to the ground with me)!
I so understand, since the time London got buried in a sudden heavy snowfall about 6 years ago. There was thick ice on the ground – I fell very badly hitting the back of my head and got mild concussion. Since then as soon as I see even the slightest bit of ice on the sidewalk I’m terrified and tie heel crampons on to the underside of my walking boots. There is nothing, but NOTHING so wonderful as the CRUNCH sound they make as they bite through the ice!!!! Everyone should have a pair, but they are difficult to find…
