I mentioned in an earlier post that my crocuses were blooming and the tulips and daffodils were up. Now those daffodils have big buds about ready to bloom.
And, as predicted, we have a winter storm warning for Northern Colorado. Between this evening and tomorrow night, we could get between 6 and 12 inches of snow. I have a few large, empty plastic flower pots, so I’ll place them over the bloomin’ plants in an effort to keep them from getting squashed.
Except for this minor inconvenience, I love the March and April snows here. The fierce weather is often sandwiched between groups of warm days in the 50s and 60s. The snow consists of big, wet flakes. Even after significant accumulation, it melts quickly on the warming ground and pavement.
This storm is conveniently timed since I need to stay home, finish those manuscript revisions, write my April blog posts for The Blood-Red Pencil, and put some kind of order to my To Do List.
In the spirit of doing different stuff, however, I have a plan for this snowstorm that’s a bit out of the ordinary. If the snow is “construction quality,” I’m going to take a break from inside chores and make a snowman. I haven’t done that in years. If this happens, I’ll post a photo. If I fail, I’ll confess. Stay tuned.
During my “Do Everything Different Day” yesterday, I was energized. If I can do at least one different activity every day, or even do a routine activity differently, perhaps I can carry that energy forward. Can’t hurt to try.
