Hello Winter!

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.

Day 13 - Winter Wonderland

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.
