We had our first snowfall yesterday and now the ground is covered in a couple inches of white and the wind is blowing more of it around. That is always a bit depressing , knowing that it could be the last we see the green grass until March. I will soon get used to winter thou I suppose and I am already looking forward to ice-fishing but I feel the cold in my hands and feet much more. The lake is not frozen yet and it will be a month before we can walk on it. It is time to get out the snow-blower and shovels and put away the lawn furniture and get ready for winter. Side effects of PD meds. caused me to give up driving this year and I can no longer walk more than 2 or 3 blocks and it's 3am and I can't sleep and I am sitting here shaking, so I guess I am feeling a bit closed in, sad and sorry for myself.
Then I remembered that I had my 65th birthday yesterday and most of my medication will now be paid for by the government and today my daughter and son and their spouses and my two grand-daughters are coming for lunch, cake and maybe even a present. Then this afternoon my wife and I are going to my brothers for dinner and a beer to watch the Grey-cup football game on television. Woohoo
Gee I feel better already, the "first snow fall blues" are gone. I guess it is all a matter of perspective. I am a lucky man. Maybe I will try to get some sleep. Good-night all.
