Snow, Snow, and More Snow.......

If I look out my window I will see snow lit by the night sky, still white, sparkly, and pure. No footprints or snow blower tracks, except where the sidewalks and drives were cleared. There's about a foot of snow blanketing the cold frozen ground. I love the peacefulness of the time after the snowstorm has stopped and people haven't really touched the scenery yet. Tomorrow, the kids will be sliding and playing in it. Cars will be getting it dirty from their exhaust, and dogs will be giving it the golden glow you don't want to touch.

Last winter I loved not having to go out in the morning and worrying about getting home in the afternoon due to bad weather. Now, I look out the window and go back to bed to sleep. When it snows, I don't leave the house if I don't have to. The idea of driving in it terrifies me.

This is perfect weather to snuggle up on the couch or your favorite chair with some knitting, a cup of tea, and a good movie playing. You could also sit and spin for a bit. That's my plan for tomorrow night after I go get my Christmas dinner items. I'll be on the sofa with my Dragon Scale Shawl, tea, and maybe "Northanger Abbey" in the DVD player. That's a lovely way to spend my evening.

Happy Hanakah everyone.
