Relief in sight?

Friends, I think we might be in luck. The temperatures are rising....and yes, that means 5-10 centimetres of snow here in Ottawa tomorrow, BUT it also means -2 degrees on Sunday!! I can't tell you how excited this makes me - finally, we'll have some relief from the bitter cold.

I don't know about you, but I've been finding this winter rough. Usually I'm too busy to care much about the weather. Sure, it bothers me when I have to drive in a snowstorm or walk on treacherous ice, but most of the time I get through winter without too much grief.

Not this winter, though. The weather this year has made me afraid that we are in an eternal winter. Maybe it's a punishment from the Gods for the fact that I've let my daughters watch Frozen too many times.

This Sunday may be one of the few days we can actually enjoy winter. We can get the girls outside for a few hours, and maybe even plan a special snowshoeing or skiing trip! 

Will you be celebrating winter this weekend?
