A Surprise Snow Day!
The Farmer's Almanac and local
forecasters have predicted for us
an unusually warm and dry winter
this year. So far, they've been right.
In our County, grass is still green, flowers are
still blooming and everyone is confused!
But on Remembrance Day, we woke to a world of
snowy white and icy branches. We had plans to go
into town but the magical landscape gave us the
chance, on a holiday day, to stay home and be warm.
We cherished our day off and spent
some time marveling at the new snow.
Our first winter in the cottage. I'm
sure in a few months, we'll be very
tired of the snow but yesterday, it
did represent the start of winter.
Sadly, today, the snow is all gone and
we're back to work with sun all around.
It was lovely to have the fireplace on,
while we sipped pots of tea and made
big cups of hot chocolate, with tiny
squares of marshmallow confetti. We
watched old movies and snuggled under
our new couch blankets, with no cares.
Have you had your first snow for the season?
Did you notice I've changed my mini art studio around?
