Life reflections

#SoCS Nov. 16/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dream.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use any way you’d like. Enjoy

Our granddaughter completed two years this 10th. When I see her dancing and playing and trying to blow the two candles on the cake baked by our daughter, my thoughts go back to this time in 2017.

I had gone to Germany to help my daughter and family. Our grandson was four years then. I was there from November 8th to January 18th 2018.
Those days seem like a dream now. They were wonderful days with my grandchildren. I was experiencing that kind of cold for the first time. Watching snow falling slowly and gracefully to the ground was heavenly. I had just read about it in books and seen it in movies. I remember one morning looking out of the kitchen window at a fairy -tale like scene. There was snow on the ground and on the bare branches of the tree and the light from two street lights filled me with delight.

Playing in the snow with my grandson was fun. Every afternoon I would go for a walk. I explored the whole town, walking in all directions but I was very careful to walk on one side of the road and return on the same side because I did not want to lose my way. Unlike my hometown there are very, very few people to be seen on the streets there. Leaving the town I would walk on the footpath near the road and walk over a bridge. There were railway tracks beneath . I loved to watch the trains go by. In November I could see the leaves of the trees and green grass by the railway tracks. The whole country side became white in colour when it started snowing. The place looked so beautiful.

It all seems like a beautiful dream now.
