First Snow

It’s a week before Thanksgiving, and suddenly, we’ve got six inches on the ground and counting. It started just after dinnertime, and it’s supposed to keep right on snowing through most of the weekend.¬†But with a cozy blanket, hot cup of tea, and a good book, I don’t mind at all.

First Snow!

We got our first little dusting of snow today. It was so pretty – it was windy and swirling around and it felt very much like being in a snow globe. And it just stuck on the ground, so it was nice and crunchy underfoot. So winter is here, and today I like it. I may very well change my mind in January, but today with a powdered sugar coating on the world, a hearty beef stew simmering on the stove and a nice warm blanket to cozy under, it’s all very nice.

Hello Snow

Finally, after a dry winter thus far, it’s snowing. It’s been coming down steadily all day, and there’s a few inches on the ground already. It’s supposed to continue through tomorrow morning. It’s fluffy and falling in big flakes – the perfect kind for watching through the windows with a big cup of tea. Where ever you are, I hope you’re enjoying a little snowfall too.
