Winter Wonderland

Sunday, December 04, 2016

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!

    Oh I do love the snow. We got some today. It is the light small snow that sticks to everything. It is so beautiful. Fresh and beautiful here is Michigan. Where are you?

    While I miss the sight of newly fallen snow I don't miss shoveling or driving in it. Stay warm and cozy!

    No snow here yet... at least on the valley floor, but they say it's coming this week.

    Having a spot where you can stay out of the elements while Daisy takes care of her business would be nice. . .

    Enjoy the season . . . and keep warm!
