Thursday photo prompt – Thaw #writephoto

Trying to follow on from Portal and Mist:

They had come to this place to get away from Elenora’s well-meaning but over intrusive family.
The weather had caught them unexpectedly, but they weren’t too worried as the cabin was well stocked with wood and food.
As it turned out, they were isolated for about two weeks longer than originally intended, but it had been the most heavenly fortnight. They had built a snowman, made snow angels and had snowball fights like a couple of kids. Their laughter echoed through the valley and at night they snuggled close under heavy blankets, listening to the crackling of the fire and watching the shadows dance on the walls.
In a way they were sorry when the thaw came, but it marked a new beginning for them.

Alex held his daughter up to the full moon in awe and wonder that such a beautiful creature was of his and Elenora’s making.
‘We’ll call her Angel,’ he said softly, looking fondly across at his beloved.
Elenora smiled back, remembering how they played in the snow, having no doubt that their child was conceived during those two glorious and precious weeks.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Lovely tale Di….I don’t remember any event or date that marked the conception of any of my kids, some were a matter of opps!
