Once inside the warm, dry office building, I took pictures of the cold, wet snow outside.
Mother Nature decided she wasn't quite through with Winter yet. Heavy, wet, sloppy, slushy snow is falling from the sky and blowing across the roads this morning. There were heavy piles of snow at the bottom of the windshield on the externally flameless Mommyvan. During the long, slow commute, I watched the windshield wiper arm nudge the piles with each back and forth motion. As I reached a bend in the road and came upon a break in the trees, the wind hit the externally flameless Mommyvan with force and blew those piles of snow right off like a giant sneeze.
It was one of those mornings when the music from the CD player* fits the rhythm of the commute. A slow, easy tempo that rolls along during the bumper to bumper, then builds at the same moment traffic gets moving again. The kind of music that makes you want to stop and exit the vehicle to strut out a couple of dance moves, maybe even break out the jazz hands. Or maybe that's just me. This song does that to me. It picks up spirits and gets me moving, sometimes even against my will.
Do you have a song that does that for you? What song is it?
* Ok, seriously, the video isn't so great, but if you close your eyes and just listen to the music, you get the idea. This guy does a great lip sync to the song.

Oh, and Effie tagged me with five things that I haven't talked about on my blog. I had a hard time coming up with five things, maybe because I've covered just about everything here.
1. The real names of my kids/family or the company I work for.
2. I don't think I've ever mentioned that I have one lone white eyelash.
3. My exact weight.
Yeah, so I can't think of the other two things. Tell you what, YOU tell ME what I haven't talked about. Use your imagination if you have to.
