Here we are - the first snow of the year. And I love the snow as long as I don't have to drive in it. Happily, I've managed to arrange my life that I don't. My friend has a four-wheel drive so when I run out of groceries, that's where I can turn.
There's something wonderful about the muffled peace of the world the morning after a snowfall. Even the birds are hushed. I go out with Abby and break a trail - softly leaving footsteps in the drifts.
And now, after coming in and happily unbundling, warm from the exertion, it's lovely to simply be here in the warmth of the house, knowing I can hibernate until tomorrow morning. How absolutely cozy!
It isn't very exciting or stimulating - but it's a life I adore.
