Where The Hell is The Joy?

Sooo...seeing as we had a foot of snow last night with a side dish of sleet, several people sent this to me today:
Image may contain: text that says 'If you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life but still the same amount of snow. @mindfulfitness'

Clearly, there is truth in that and, given the forecast for the foreseeable future....

I went out this morning to try to find some f***ing joy.

Hmmm...definitely no joy here...

"How about you Ben, have you found some joy today?"

"Do I look like I've found any joy?"


"Mr. Einstein, have you spotted any joy lying around?"

"That depends on whether or not you have cookies in your pocket???"

"Yeah....that's gonna be some more non-joy.  We are out of cookies."

I don't think I even need to ask Ramsey.  If there is anyone around here who finds less joy in snow than I do.......

"Hey Ma!"

"Yes Emma?"

"I know where the joy is stored.  It's those yummy pellets in the barrel right right behind you...Just step aside and we'll liven this place right up!"

"Sorry guys, having to make an emergency call to the vet because you gobbled all the joy is not exactly what I was hoping for."

"Bummer,  you can be such a killjoy Ma.  In that case, you better go play with the stooopid dog cause this is about all the joy you're gonna find here today."

Yup, there is some joy...

...and it's the first time since last winter that he hasn't had muddy feet.

Whew.  Some days you have to look long and hard to find a bit of joy.

Wild Enthusiasm

How I wish we could send some of our endless rain, mud and now snow out to CA.  Instead, all we can do is hope for rain in the west and try to be as enthusiastic as Connor is about mud and snow.

Although....if you can match this... might end up scaring all your friends....

...and learning more than you ever wanted to know about antipsychotics.

Lest We Forget....

 That the sun still does exist somewhere and it doesn't really rain EVERY day...

....even if it is hard to tell.
