It has turned into the most beautiful afternoon outside. The grey of the morning gave way to sun early in the afternoon. The snow that has stood on the grass for well over a week is melting away, returning green grass and golden sunlight and bright white of the melting snow to the palette that has long been greys, blues and browns only. It does my heart good, heals the soul. I had forgotten during our Australia years just how difficult the grey winter months can feel. Trying not to be a complainer, knowing full well that there are months of this to come...but I will soak up these perfect afternoons, hoping to store up a bit of their magic for the days ahead when I will need it to break up the grey.
