A Happy Mooo-d

The Snows of my Childhood

The Snows of my Childhood

The day started out rather disappointing.  There had been a lot of hype about a big snowstorm headed our way.  We were supposed to get between 5-8 inches of the white stuff.  I had been hoping for something like the above, similar to the snows that I remembered from childhood.

What we got was …….NOTHING!  Well, let me amend that.  We got about 1/4 inch of snow.  I even woke up around 4:15 a.m. and rushed to the window to check out how much snow had fallen only to see absolutely nothing on the ground.  Aaargh!  I was crushed.  It was supposed to have started to snow around midnight so when I had gone to bed, I fully expected to at least see a covering of white.

Since we weren’t snowed in, that meant that my annual appointment with the dermatologist was still on.  I had kind of hoped they would cancel on me but no such luck.  Last year I had a suspicious mole removed from my stomach area so now I have to go in for regular checkups.  Just one more thing to be nervous about.

It's a cow in our grocery store parking lot!

My day got better and brighter when the appointment went well and my doctor said that all looked well and told me to come back in a year.  Yay!  Then, to top it off, I stopped at the grocery store and this is what I spied.  I LOVE Holstein cows.  They are one of my favorite animals.  My grandpa owned a dairy farm and raised Holsteins and I’ve loved them since I was a kid.

It's a heavenly sign!

Look closer!  It gets better.  This cow was advertising ice cream.  Was that not a heavenly sign to go celebrate my good report with some ice cream?  Ok, maybe not and I didn’t but I sure could have interpreted it that way.

As I pulled back out of the grocery parking lot, I couldn’t help but think of that famous Shakespeare quote, “All’s well that ends well.”
