I woke up this morning to snow - that light but wet snow that just sticks to everything. My backyard looks like a beautiful winter wonderland. The snow is on all the bushes and trees around, and we have a lot of them. Nature's decorating.
Daisy was thrilled this morning. She loved having me shovel off the back step and our little space where I put my chair to wait for her while she explores every morning. I'd like to have a patio, or a deck - but neither one are really doable for us. We looked into the deck but we'd have to knock out a set of windows to install patio doors and because the house was built in the early 50's there's some kind of material that would have to be disposed of properly - which adds way too much cost to the project. I suppose the patio would be possible but I'd have to have someone else create it. But for now I have a nice little area that isn't grass so I can shovel it off easily enough!
But as beautiful as it is to look at, I sure don't want to go out in it! What I really want is to turn on my fireplace and curl up with a good book - and I just might do that for awhile today!
I think this time winter has really arrived. Getting down into the teens for highs later this week. It comes every year!
