1st Snow

This is what I woke up to. I suppose if I paid any attention to the weather on the news I would have known it was coming.

While it is very pretty, snow always makes me feel melancholy and antsy. I hate the thought of being snowed in. I think it is probably that I am snowed in with just myself and the cats.

Though, so far it doesn't look too bad out. The main road looks pretty clear and I've cleared my drive way. I think I'm going to dash to the store for a bit. And then I have to be at B&N at 2:00. Hopefully, the weather won't get worse before then.

I did use the opportunity to take a picture of the tree. I've just placed an email photo order at Walgreens for a pictures of trees in the summer, trees in the fall, and this one of a tree in winter. I am going to send them to my Compassion International children.

Hope you are having a great Sunday.

It is beautiful. I too don't like the idea of being snowed in alone. I use to love snow days, knowing that meant me and hubby could spend the day together. Not any longer. I do like snow days if it means I can sleep in though.

I'm fortunate that I live in a small town, so if I'm careful I can still get out and go to family or even know get out for food, movie, etc.

More than snow and being snowed in, I hate the thought of no cable, electricity, and stores being closed. Something about the stores being closed even if we don't need anything, is unsettling. I guess the feeling of not being able to get what you need.

I LOVE the snow!!!! I remember when I was working, I'd arrive at the office and everyone would be "doom and gloom" because of the weather, and one girl would always look up when I walked in and say, "Oh we knew you'd be happy" - and I was!!! There's something about seeing that beautiful, white wonderland that reminds me of how God forgives me and sees me "whiter than snow".

I love walking in the snow; I love getting bundled up because of the snow; I love sitting in front of the fireplace with a hot chocolate and looking out the window and seeing the snow; I love the community outside as neighbours all come out, shovels in hands as we clear our driveways.

Right now our windows are being blasted by rain/freezing rain - trust me - I'd rather have snow!

Stay warm,

I am SOOO jealous. I know that I should not admit it but it's true.
There will NEVER be a beautiful tree like that in my yard!
