Always June, you have the power to entice the tiny diamond hidden deep within my core
Exerting pressure with a breeze or the kiss of rain on my cheek
Slowly June, you cajole memory upon emotion upon young woman’s dreams to shine
Polishing away the rough surfaces of subsequent years, disappoints and fears
Beautiful June, faceting my hopes and dreams with brilliance and clarity
Restoring once again clarity to my heart and brilliance to my soul

Since I first heard it, this song by one of my idols – Chrissy Hynde – has been a favourite. This Yule it feels even more en pointe; 2000 miles, 9000 days, one kiss…
Sometimes our weather is annoyingly stereotypical… Apparently, Ma Nature has decided to make up for not smothering the country until the after 27 December 2015 and is dumping the entire expected forecasted snowfall in eleven freakin’ hours!!
Well, I’m off. I need to shovel out my front lane. Again. Lord knows how many pets and short people I may find out there…
Something has happened since I took the recycle out at 5:30AM this morning…
My picnic table has been pilfered!
This was hiding under the door sweep.
How fondly I remember these lightly dusted bricks from this morning…
And… it’s time to go do the front. AGAIN.
The shed from whence the aforementioned bin was taken this AM. I’ll need to shovel out the other half doorway to put the damn thing back in!
The recycle bin will be spending the night at the curb…
We don’t need no stinkin’ wires…
Well… No words that are fit to print! ‘Sides, why waste a perfectly good curse when the acoustics in this town just reverted to soup tin and binder twine quality?!

Winter Finally Arrives!
So incredibly quiet on this normally busy street.
Artsy vine and snow shot.
I See My Work Is Cut Out For Me…
As of 11:30pm last night, there was a skiff of snow covering the bricks of my patio. This is 4:00pm on the next day.
Weather 180 – there was no snow in this spot yesterday!
Same feet, same backyard… Sigh…
And… my work here is done. Of course the front path needs doing. Volunteers??
