I woke up this morning wearing my leaporad print fleece pajamas. Groggily I answered the phone. It was my friend Sherry the cow farmer. She lives pert near 10 miles south of me. “It’s snowing,” she yelled into the phone! I didn’t have my contacts in and had no idea where my eye glasses were. I slipped on the slippers that belong to that husband of mine. He was already gone to work. My foot is a woman’s size 6. His is a manly size 12. I waddled to the window with my friend on my ear. I was sad to say, “It’s not snowing here.” Though the morning light brushed the kind of sky that artistically, mindfully said snow was near-I had none. I listened to Sherry the cow farmer describe it trying to share in her joy despite my jealousy. I hung up to brew myself a cup of java. The leaky windows in our little remote cabin got many peeks inbetween trips to the coffee maker. The only flakes present near me were the “Kellogs Frosted Flakes” in the cereal cupboard. Just like I had no snowflakes -I can’t have Frosted Flakes either. I’m a Type 1 diabetic and I have to opt for less sugar-filled breakfast choices. I digress. That husband of mine phoned to check on me. I waddled in his massive size 12’s to answer the phone. Just then I saw them! Huge, fluffy snowflakes cascading from the grey hued sky! To add to my already ridiculous ensemble -I grabbed my hand-knitted horse sweater cardigan and put on my green Mad Bomber winter had with ear flaps. The only gloves I could find were my burgandy velvet pair with feather boa accents. I hung up on Husband and grabbed my camera to capture the first snowfall of the season! November 14, 2011. My Siberian husky dog, “Kisska” eagerly awaits even more of the flakes falling -building themselves into drifts so he can run with me behind him on the sled with ease! “To everything there is a season!” I wish this to be a season of health-of wealth-of safety, warmth, love -and a significant other that will love you despite the way you dress! Happy First Day of Snow -Eastern North Dakota!
