While most of the Midwest got a Blizzard, we had high winds and a temperature plummet. The winds are par for course, this is Oklahoma after all, ‘where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain.’ My grandfather always told me that the wind heralds change and maybe he is right about that; yesterdays gales and gusts of up to 50 miles per hour have subsided into a pleasant calm, both inside and outside. The birds sought shelter in bushes and on our porch more afraid of the gusty winds than the cats that were watching them. The deer haven’t been back since the other morning but someone needs to check their fence line because, much to Lily’s delight, we had Mules wandering the 2.5 acre wood this morning. They were very people friendly. Most of the fur gang is wore out from all the excitement which is making my life a little easier.
Today, I am truly grateful for all the little surprises in Life.
