Changes

             

Between the vaccine and perfect weather a change is the safe  gathering of friends

It’s interesting being so closely connected to nature. As the season changes from winter to spring and from summer to autumn, we sometimes get graupel up here in the mountains. Graupel looks like tiny pieces of Styrofoam. Holding a piece in my hand I watch the outside Styrofoam looking case melt away to reveal a piece of ice.

Little things mean a lot – my sweet, romantic husband…while this looks familiar, the snow is lessening now and the new snow doesn’t stay around. We have been having spring snows, 2-3 inches at a time and one day soon, the snow will change into rain…

 

 

 

A big change is that Elsa and I are back together! Avoiding COVID has been paramount. After being together since she was 2-years-old, Elsa and I weren’t together from when school started in August, until 2 weeks after I got my second vaccine on March 30th. We missed each other being apart all those months !

 

 

A change is Elsa’s understanding of strategy

 

Hello Fresh is a change for us – the food for the meals arrives at our door – fun to have something different for dinner; something we wouldn’t fix ourselves. It’s like having a restaurant meal at home. We’d rather eat at home than go out! It’s a fun treat!

Joy and Hope are so glad to see Elsa again! We can wear tennis shoes instead of boots for a change!

What changes are going on with you? Do you enjoy the change of season or do you live where there’s little change as the months pass? Are you experiencing changes since the vaccine? Is aging the change foremost on your mind? Even trying to push those thoughts away, physical changes push back don’t they…
