My morning routine is pretty set. After showering and shaving, and before I feed the cat, I try my best to enjoy my breakfast (which includes coffee) while listening to the radio. Though they had stopped the practice for a little while, they have returned to updating the weather forecast and weather conditions. Or so they thought.
They announced that it was actually a little rainy and that the rain would turn to ice. At 5:30 in the morning, and needing to catch the bus, this information was crucial. I looked out the window but the glare of the streetlights clouded my view. I also hadn’t actually drunk my coffee, so I believed the announcers.
At the appointed time, I left home, briefly thinking that my shoes would be better than my boots. My boots are pretty warm, and while waterproof, they are heavy. If I don’t have to wear them, I usually opt for shoes. However, thinking I had better play it safe, or perhaps still being somewhat asleep, I put on my boots–and I am extremely glad I did.
Those radio announcers had gotten it so wrong. Perhaps their studio has no windows, or perhaps they were so high up in the building that they weren’t actually getting a view. When I walked outside, I walked into a fluffy snowy wonderland that kids and adults with a little child trapped inside them love. If only I could have been skiing in that.
So, yesterday’s Perfect Moment is all about a wonderful winter landscape that I want to share with you.
