I can’t wait till it gets colder in Colorado. It is a strange feeling for me because usually I really enjoy warm weather. Right now I want it to snow! I want to wake up in the morning and see how the white blanket of fluffy soft snow lovingly covers whole land.
I do not like driving in the snow. I miss those days when I was still in high school. I would wake up late on the weekends, looking in the window and seeing amazing scenery. All trees were covered in snow and ice cones. I knew that it was really cold outside but I did not care because I was sitting in my warm bed drinking hot tea. After having a small breakfast I used to take my dog Martin for a walk. He always gets so excited when he sees snow! He starts running, jumping, and crawling in the snow while tasting it. Fun times! My shoes usually get wet very quickly so our walks do not last more than 30 minutes.
It is amazing how small children and animals can innocently appreciate and enjoy simple things in life: fresh snow on the ground, golden raise of sun gently touching your skin, hardly noticeable smell of dandelions etc. I hope that as I become older I still will be able to stop in the middle of a hectic day to notice and appreciate the beauty around me, smell blossoming grass and flowers, listen to the birds singing on the trees and remind myself that life is beautiful and I am so happy to be alive!
