Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.
Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.

====================================
Watching my daughter surf the snow, from our dining room window (hence, the haze). Notice her bare foot. It was in the 70s this day, just after the Halloween blizzard .
Gotta love Colorado.

And I do.

Yep, that’s what I remember about the weather when I was in college (in Denver)…80 degrees one day, 50 degrees the next, snowing the day after that.

Snow surfing looks like fun!

Barefoot snow surfing in 70 degree weather . . .

You don’t get to do that very often!

Ok now that is just odd. Snow on the ground and 70′s? Glad she had fun though.

That would give me weather whiplash. But very cool that you have snow surfing. We don’t get enough snow for that sort of thing.

I love it. Sounds like the crazy swings in weather we get here in NC.

WOW! How fun!!!

I’ve been in shorts/short sleeves in the snow (on Mt. Rainer in Washington state.) But I’ve never been barefoot. Cool!

Next thing you know, she’ll be barefoot skiing! Ar, ar.

So, I did a bit of a cheat. I linked up my post on LAST weekend, since we didn’t do ANYTHING this weekend. But, now I’m all set up on McLinky to participate more often! Yay!

That looks like so much fun! And we also have the whiplash weather here, it just doesn’t snow (often), so I guess ours is less dramatic.

Oh Colorado, how I love thee…

Thank you for bringing me there!

Hmm…well, glad it was no blizzard here–I like to keep that snow at bay as long as I can! But, glad to see she enjoyed it!

VERY similar weather in Flagstaff, although we have not had a freak blizzard yet. But we’ll get snow and then 70s.

That is how Rochester weather is. Today is was 70 tomorrow it will be 40. Layering clothing is always important here. great picture.

That is fantastic, and such a dream of mine – to have a blizzard and the next day be able to wear shorts. It looks like Tessa took full advantage!

Sheri April 7, 2010 at 5:01 am

That is SO Tessa…barefoot out in the snow…surfing!

I love Colorado…and I love Tessa.

Kami April 7, 2010 at 5:01 am

That would be fun!

We had a really nice morning going for a walk in the sunshine, although it wasn’t above 40.

I am so jealous! I wonder if I’ll ever get hubby to move to Colorado. If only we were independently wealthy. :)

Martha April 7, 2010 at 5:01 am

How delightful!! Can I please take a turn? Wow, snow…

The weather in the west can be nutty. We’ve had snow on the 4th of July. Crazy.

My perfect moment was not getting wrapped up in making another lap around the walking track this morning and letting my son play on the slides/swings instead. It was still frosty so his jeans gathered frost we brushed off as he giggled each time he blessed each slide with its first slider of the day. I lived in the moment, not the one before it or after it.
