Have you found lately the weather to be in an unusual pattern in your neck of the woods? In the Mid-Atlantic area, we had above average temperatures and howling winds last week. And when we experience wind gusts, our front yard is the landing pad for everything and anything from the porches of surrounding homes.
We have collected planters, holiday decorations, newspaper, yard debris and various odds and ends.
For the last few days, this poor snowman has been in our yard. He sat on our stoop for a few days hoping someone would claim him, or better yet, adopt him, only to tumble down the stairs with another burst of air flowing down our street.
We are taking a liking to this snowman as he adds humor to our day. As we pull into our driveway returning from a journey somewhere, our curiosity is piqued to see what condition Mr. Snowman is in or if he's still there. And usually he is laying halfway down the stairs or face-up or face-down on the sidewalk. Or he's shivering in the dark, only found to be among our holiday lights and watch-full turtle.
If it's owners do not claim him soon, I may need to resort to placing a sign around his neck with the words "lost & found". And if that doesn't work, he may become a happy fixture to our winter decor.
It's the little things that can brighten our day. Mr. Snowman, you have brightened ours.
