This morning before rising, I felt a warm breeze blowing across my face. Ah…the beach is calling me.
I love to shut my eyes and relax and listen to the waves crashing in.
Wait…nope, it was just Dessy, breathing heavy on my face, wanting me to get up and feed her.
What was that wind sound then? Oh, yeah, that’s right, it is February, I’m in Wisconsin, and I’ll be damned if it isn’t a balmy -20 below.
With an offering of a profuse tone, all I’ve got to say is, “Well, isn’t that just NICE?”
The real sandy beach somewhere must be calling me? A gal can dream, can’t she?
A delusion is something that people believe in despite a total lack of evidence. – Richard Dawkins
Sunbathing in Wisconsin, in February, is only perfect for cats. Humans know better. They put very little skin in the game at this time of year. Plus, there’s only a small section of the beachfront available.
Yesterday, as I admired Tizzie basking in the sun in her bathing suit – (which fits perfectly, don’t ya know?) I glanced outside to see the view of our white ocean. Nada chance, not going there today; my bathing suit is stored away and replaced appropriately with skinny jeans (they’re the only skimpy thing I got going on) a sweatshirt, leg warmers, tennis shoes and a scarf. I’ve considered adding mittens, they would be a nice addition, but they’re hard to type in.
But that doesn’t stop me from imagining I’m on a beach.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. – Carl Sagan
Just look at all my beachfront property, calling me…the possibilities are endless.
The Nordic winds came in like a lion on January 31st, and have created beautiful waves in the snow. Unlike on a sandy beach, our snow-blown waves are perfected into a standstill form. Just waiting for busloads of gawkers to admire as they pass it by.
There’s just as much water here as in the ocean (well, maybe not…), it just doesn’t flow and one should avoid sticking their toes in it. But, it’s still pretty.
If you use the right photo filter, you can even see blue instead of white. Either way, wearing sunglasses to look out at the view isn’t out of the range of possibilities.
The waves swirl around objects, leaving space for critters to enter in and the Mr. to grill.
When all else fails there’s always delusion. – Conan O’Brien
Maybe I should set up a go-fund-me page to help with my copious desire to hit a beach? My delusions aren’t getting me there fast enough.
Nah, it’s Friday, and thank goodness for that. I’ve got plans for the weekend to finish up my tax papers and receipts that need finalizing…maybe I’ll find a refund in there that will fund a trip?
Yeah, that’s the way to find motivational splashes and get back to reality in a hot flash kind of way!?
What do you do to keep yourself motivated in the cold weather? (Don’t say take a trip to the beach…that would be cheating!) What’s the weather like where you’re at? If you’re on a beach, go ahead, describe it, I’ll enjoy hearing about your waves of joy to feed my desires to see the beach!
