This morning when I woke up it was a winter wonderland outside! It was beautiful & I was so excited to see the snow. It is about time! This was our first real snow of the season. It snowed a little bit right after Christmas but it was gone the same day, which hardly counts in my books. But this morning there was good cover on the ground & it snowed most of the day… in fact, I think it is still snowing now. We probably got around 4 inches & it finally feels like winter.
If it is supposed to be winter outside I would just as soon it be cold & snowy. I am not totally into Mother Nature teasing me with all these warm temperatures & spring like weather. It was quite warm (for January) earlier in the week (& last weekend – remember my laundry hanging on the line) & it almost smelled like spring out. I don’t like that… I mean, I do, but not in January when I know there is still more of winter to come before we actually get spring. So, I was happy this morning to see the white. Honey, however, was not. He does not like the snow… & he’s been wishing it would stop snowing all day!
One of the best things about the snowy weather this morning was that I didn’t have to go out in it… I worked from home today which was great. I sat at my desk sorting through paperwork, sipping coffee, & was curled up in my comfy clothes watching the snow fall. It was a great way to start the day, I have to say. The snowy day transitioned into one of those winter evenings that I love. I just finished making carrot-sweet potato soup for tomorrow & chocolate banana cupcakes… as you can imagine, the house smells amazing. The house is warm & the snow is sparkling outside. Honey & I are getting ready to watch a movie & snuggle up on the couch… If we had a fireplace, we would definitely have it on. I can think of nothing I would rather do on this snowy & chilly January evening.
