…and all through the yard only Spike and I were stirring,
Pretty and Charly were inside and warm.
Pretty and I like to keep the pool open in the winter,
but it has a much different look from summer fun
Spike keeps me company whenever I walk around the pool
(I think he likes the cold, and I like his company)
so beautiful, but Pretty battles the leaves until they’re all gone
the bottom of the pool looks like a Rorschach test picture to me sometimes
even the bottle tree loses its colors in wintertime
Spike is ready to go inside to check on Pretty
While family members in the upstate of South Carolina have been without power this weekend after unusually large amounts of snowfall, we have been covered in grey clouds peppering us with rain, rain and more rain. Almost cold enough for snow, but not quite.
I am reminded of Granny Selma’s motto: Sheila, we have to smile more on rainy days.
Think about it, and stay tuned.
