Mother Nature Dressed Up as Winter for Halloween.

Dear Mother Nature,

I see you are dressing up as winter for Halloween. Good costume.

I'll have you know that I was all nice and cuddled up on the couch with The Canadian today. You see, I am sick. I've been sick for a week and have barely left my house. It was torrential rain this morning but, being the loving wife that I am, I sent TC out into the wind and rain to get us a movie to watch for the afternoon. 

From my position on the couch I could not see the window. As the movie ended, I reluctantly peeled myself off the couch to get a drink of water. It was then that I, regrettably, looked out the window. And what did I find? Snow.

Is this your Halloween costume? It had better be. It is far too early in the year for snow season to start. There better be some sunshine and high temperatures coming my way this week to make up for your funny little prank.

I would also like to inform you that this little trick caused me to leave my humble abode. I was forced to put on boots and a jacket (but left my sweat pants on) and get into my car. I was simply drawn to the flurries and had an unquenchable need to try and photograph falling snow flakes at the park. Yes, I realize that this is partly due to the photography tutorial I read online yesterday in my boredom. But, nevertheless, I place most the blame on you. 

I'll have you know that I was not successful in my quest either. Your snow was falling too fast. And the flakes were too small. 

So next time, do you think you could afford me the small favor of big, pretty, fluffy snowflakes? Oh, and preferably not until December at the earliest.

I'd be much obliged.


Your very southern photographer


Workout - still nothing. maybe tomorrow. i feel almost human again. almost.
