Finally some snow! January 13th and this is the first real snowfall we’ve had-which is unusual for the Toronto area.
I for one welcome it! When it gets to this time of the year and many of the days are gloomy and winter is still on the horizon for many more weeks, I think that a little snow is needed. I mean, without it everything looks muddy (because of nasty, cold January rain) and brown, and dead. So, I’d much rather be looking out at a nice dusting of snow!
For the most part. I mean, when I was outside, without boots on this morning clearing off the car while the baby and kiddo were in the cold car waiting to go to school, it wasn’t exactly fun. But, I didn’t complain because I really was missing the snow this year. And the kids looooove it. My 5 yr old squeeled with delight and raced out the front door. All the way to school he was contemplating what games they were going to play outside at recess in the snow. It was so cute to listen too. And of course, even when I got the inevitable gust of snow thrown at me because he just couldn’t contain himself I could only laugh. Now check back with me in February when I get snow thrown in my face if I’ll still be laughing, lol.
I find snow inspiring, uplifting, and beautiful. Just look at that pic-doesn’t it make you wonder about that man in the photo? Who is he? Where is he going? Who is he meeting? Lots of inspiration…
As for writing inside, with the view of the snow-capped trees in the forest behind our home, with a nice, hot cup of coffee while baby naps? Well, that’s just priceless 🙂
